UP+S：With urbanization, cities are swallowing up the countryside and driving out nature. Children who grow up in cities have an increasingly significant sense of alienation from nature, which is not only physical distance, but also psychological distance.
As a Sustainable Space Builder , we want to create some interesting fields that make nature and children closer.

由阿普贝思建造的阿奇瑞亲自然儿童乐园于2023年4月在北京二环内的龙潭中湖公园正式开放。北京龙潭中湖公园的前身是北京游乐园，在停业8年后于 2010 年修整升级。
In April 2023, the UP Nature Park constructed by UP+S was officially opened in Longtan Middle Lake Park within Beijing’s second ring road. Beijing Longtan Middle Lake Park , the former Beijing Amusement Park, which was repaired and upgraded in 2010 after eight years out-of-business.

In the context of child-friendly and carbon neutral policies, we propose the design vision of a child-friendly paradise. We make full use of the original natural environment, retain the original site of plant and animal resources, protect the ecological diversity, maintain the ecological balance of the base, and create an environment for children to have close contact with nature.

When upgrading the original site of the UP Nature Park, we based on the principle of not cutting down any tree, and retained the original trees Ginkgo biloba, Sophora japonica, Pinus tabulaefor and Platycladus orientalis of the site, combined with the site conditions, then designed and built the UP Nature Park.Five design principles based on the dual perspective of space and children have been proposed in the design:
Law of Nature：The design respects regional characteristics and culture, make full use of the park’s natural resources and preserve every tree in the native site; Minimal interference with nature has been exerted with less artificial traces and utilize the natural materials and elements to create a habitat for plants and animals and meanwhile a playground for children.
Safety and Practicality：Activity equipment and safety hazards site detail has been excluded. With consideration of children’s need for diversity, the design enables the children to experience pure enjoyment.
Amusing Interaction：Natural interaction: playing with water, sand, mud, and observing plant changes; Stepping on fallen leaves, pine needles, observing pinecones, and enjoying the scenery of four seasons; Fishing, loaches catching, birds watching, and interaction with small animals.
Social entertainment: family time with parents, gaming with fellow friends, and natural science education classes
Realistic Aesthetics：To take rusticity and simplicity as beauty, so as to maintain the facility materials’ true state. To have the landscape change with the seasons, so as to reflect the healthy and natural beauty of the plants.
Sustainability：The design encourages low maintenance, low investment, and low impact development. It is our goal to achieve ecological health and to promote low-carbon energy conservation.
The park offers diverse fields such as sensory training, artistic and aesthetic education, natural education, and parent-child interaction for children aged 3-12. By combining the theme IP of “Golden, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth”, and connecting online and offline education platforms, we create a pro-nature school that integrates education with entertainment. It will bring nature back to urban children, and promote the healthy growth for the youth.

The UP Nature Park covers an area of 14,000 square meters. According to the children’s age and behavior characteristics, the park is divided into four areas: the fun and play area focusing on perceptual exploration for children aged 3-6, the expansion area focusing on sports development for children aged 7-9, the comprehensive area focusing on theater and supporting services, and the vegetable park focusing on perception and experience plant planting. On the basis of taking care of children’s growth preferences, the park can meet the needs of people of all ages.

12.设计手记 Design Notes
造梦者的自白 Confessions from the dreammaker
Based on the environment, the UP Nature Park has become a link between children and nature, allowing children to contact nature, play in nature, and carry out natural education, labor education and perception activities, so that children can grow up happy and healthy in nature.
Nature is an essential factor in the growth of children. We hope that children will be handed over to nature and nature will be returned to children in our paradise.
Since the idea of creating the UP Nature Park emerged in early 2022, the team has created it from sketch through land acquisition, planning, concept, construction to later operation and promotion. The design condenses our love and reflection on nature, children and parents, design and life.
▽主创设计师亲手绘制标识系统 The chief designer hand drew the signage system
With countless weekends, we have explored children’s parks of all sizes in Beijing, only to find the most exciting design highlights;
With countless mornings, we have held discussions, only to consolidate safety and innovative design considerations;
With countless afternoons, we kept in touch with manufacturers, just to select the most thoughtful and high-quality partners;
With countless afternoons, we dragged our tired bodies after work, but still worry about the evening meetings;
With countless nights, we have been planting, constructing, loading and unloading on site, just to realize the beauty from our dreams.
▽团队日夜兼程，细细描摹乐园的点点滴滴。 The team travels day and night to meticulously depict the details of the park
▽设计师亲自下场，用双手创造眼中的美好 Designers personally leave the scene, creating beauty from their eyes with both hands
▽不断完善、不断丰富，梦想也一天天饱满起来 Constantly improving and enriching, our dreams are also becoming fruitfull day by day
尊重自然、依靠自然、利用自然的法则。 让自然回归城市，让人回归自然。 是阿普贝思的本源精神。创造儿童友好、生态自然的美好环境，阿奇瑞亲自然乐园期待大家的到来！
Respect nature, rely on nature, and utilize the laws of nature, bring nature back to the city, bring people back to nature. It is the fundamental spirit of UP. Create a child-friendly, ecological and natural environment. UP Nature Park looks forward to your arrival!
