Qianwan Park completes construction of central lawn

LMS| Updated: February 18, 2024

Construction was recently completed on the 13,000-square-meter central lawn of Qianwan Square in the center of Qianwan Park, which is currently under construction in the Shanghai Hongqiao International Central Business District and is expected to become a world-class urban waterfront central park.

Construction on other key projects such as the 150-meter-long Yangtze River Delta water axis, a reflecting water stage and 10 landscape sites is also in full swing.

On the northern and southern sides of the central lawn, there are six gardens and four corridors, each featuring distinct spaces and elements unique to Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces as well as the municipality of Shanghai, highlighting the cultural significance of the Yangtze River Delta region.

The six gardens, including the completed Dijing Garden and Yunshui Garden, have a focus on natural landscapes including stones, water, and flowers. The designs of the four corridors, named Chunshen, Gusu, Zhijiang and Jianghuai, reflect regional characteristics such as the magnolia forest, plum blossom fragrance, bamboo forest path and verdant pine and cypress trees.

The lawn will provide space for various activities such as daily relaxation, gatherings, camping, music festivals, corporate team-building and more.

The water axis is embedded deep within the lawn, creating a sense of natural beauty in which the mountains and waters complement each other. The 150-meter-long water axis serves as a scenic microcosm of a 600-kilometer stretch of the Yangtze River's middle and lower reaches, which includes 14 large lakes and 26 major cities and utilizes surface water flow combined with relief sculpture techniques and night scene lighting to showcase the momentum of the Yangtze River rushing into the sea and the modern prosperity of the Yangtze River Delta metropolitan area.

The reflective water stage, the most iconic building in the first phase of Qianwan Park, adopts the concept of "People's Stage". It is designed in harmony with the surrounding areas, water surfaces and lawns, providing extremely diverse and interesting display spaces, including several small ripple theaters, covered stages, and a fashion show runway extending over 200 meters along the water's edge.
