The park is for children of all ages, with sand, wavy lawns and green mazes of plants. Under a “cloud bridge”, there are artificial drapes, fountains and shoals where people can enjoy cool and refreshing. The lighting here is combined according to various constellation patterns, adding a unique view to the park.
People can walk through the woods and grass along the walking path. There are many butterflies on the grass. Beside the children’s playing field, there are many big trees, under which there are desks and chairs for parents to monitor their children.
The park also has a 1, 200-seat outdoor theater built on a 1, 550-square-foot hardwood platform with a canopy and power outlets. People can gather, perform, watch movies and hold various activities here.
People can overlook the vigorous waterfront ecology from the recreation ground in the park. A portable trestle bridge across the river allows people to watch the boats on the river. The park also has a huge reservoir of algae floating on top of it, which collects one million gallons of rain a year to irrigate the park’s vegetation.
