Nancy studio : After renovation, the urban park was naturally born in an old water treatment plant, where landscape nodes are skillfully arranged to give you surprises upon your entering.
At the designers’ insistence, plant communities and industrial relics are kept and used, shaping a unique ecological and artistic atmosphere. I first entered the park at around 6 a.m., when the sun has already shone brightly in Changchun. Since Chinese are fond of shade, plenty of trees on the site are conserved to provide various shady spaces for relaxation and family activities. When I came to the park again after 3 p.m., I visited the rainwater garden and the tree plaza, finding that there were a lot of people in the park even on the working day. Children were running around, adults sat nearby taking photos, friends were chatting with each other in the setting sun, and couples were taken photos in front of the sculpture hand in hand…… Against the amazing landscape, a beautiful painting of life is unfolding.
01-南北露天沉淀池 Outdoor Sedimentation Tanks
Around the outdoor sedimentation tanks are plenty of bushes growing down to the water’s edge. The landscape team designed two waterfront spaces around the southern and northern sedimentation tanks. On the bank of the northern tank is a wooden platform leading people close to water. Nearby a small and interesting pergola with seats is built among trees, which provides an ideal space for having a rest. There I could not help taking a seat and had a talk with an elder who was doing exercises around.

Surrounding the southern tank are towering metasequoia trees, at the end of which is a small viewing platform overlooking the water below. Interestingly, the platform is built on a cement mound of the former plant, and its handrail embodies the industrial characteristic of the site.

02 森林栈道 Forest trail
In the south of the park, a trail with handrails zigzags through the trees and bushes, at the end of which hides a terrace garden, making the small woods full of fun.

03 台地花园 Terrace Garden
The garden is nestled on the edge of the park, where a wooden platform is built taking advantage of the height difference. A tree “grows” from the platform, creating a natural and interesting space.

05 古树名木广场 Tree Plaza
In the center of the plaza is a big tree, around which special-shaped seats are designed for people to have a rest, while children will run after each other around the tree or move the interactive installation nearby together.
06下沉雨水花园 Rainwater Garden
The rainwater garden is built on an industrial site with interesting height difference and material combination. Following the steps, you will walk down the sunken space, where you can find mottled walls and industrial relics kept for about one hundred years. The new road system is made of weather-proof steel plates that shapes a contrast with the historical wall. In addition, the interesting sculpture further enhances the artistic atmosphere of the space.

The Art Square has a large lawn, where all kinds of art activities are held.
08 设计细节+林下节点 details+ trees
Various landscape spaces under trees never cease to amaze you. From the design of details to the selection of materials, we can see the insight and efforts of the design team.
