Green is the city background of Yangzhou. In recent years, Yangzhou has persisted in pursuing a new realm of ecological civilization construction, earnestly transforming the “green assets” of the city into the ecological welfare of the people, and taking the construction of more diversified, wider and more balanced public space as the most distinctive new feature of the ancient city of Yangzhou under the new historical conditions, which is called the “park system construction” of Yangzhou.

Liaojiagou City Central Park, as one of the key projects of Yangzhou Park System 111, has a planned total area of about 10.7 square kilometers, of which the land area is about 4.9 square kilometers and the water area is about 5.8 square kilometers. The project enjoys the unique natural resources of Liaojiagou and the strategic development resources of the city’s eastward expansion, creating a world-class Central Park and adding new landmarks for the construction of Yangzhou’s famous city.

“公园+”模式实践 | Practice of “Park +” Model
In the new era of ecology, Yangzhou has put forward the goal of promoting the construction of park system in new city and old city. At the beginning of Liaojiagou Central Park design, it innovatively put forward the “park plus” model. The output of Liaojiagou Central Park is not only the ecological corridor of the Yangtze and Huaihe River, but also a more participatory and experiential concept of urban central park.

Liaojiagou City Waterfront Green Corridor is an important part of the “Jianghuai Ecological Corridor”. It connects Qihe-Badao ecological section in the north, riverside ecological wetland in the South and new Yangzhou core green space in the east. It has become an important node in the network construction of Yangzhou Ecological Park City. In the existing large area of the base, the site was moderately sorted out under the concept of respecting the status quo and protecting the ecological environment, retaining the original fish pond water system, nursery stock texture and enriching the diversity of habitats through plant supplement, and building a more healthy and stable ecosystem through linking the eastern and Western habitats.

By borrowing the original high-quality natural conditions of Liaojiagou, the design, according to the location of the plot and the functional needs of the surrounding cities, increases the experience of the park through multiple experience spaces such as three-dimensional composite space, water shuttle space, color space under the bridge, frame space under the scenery, roaming under the forest, interesting runway and so on, and provides people with different views. Viewing from a wild angle is close to nature.

The original intention of our design is to continuously grow the waterfront green corridor, beautiful and colorful country park of the whole people, and prosperous Ecological City Central park. Therefore, on the basis of satisfying the ecology and experience, we add a touch of light colorfulness on the basis of “Green Poplar City Guo”. Through color paving, color Gallery frame, color landscape box and color sculpture, the design integrates color into the green room, lights up the green, and integrates into the environment of the Central Park.

For more than 100 years, New York Central Park has exerted a profound influence on the relationship between people, class and stratum, and between people and city, and even on the character of New Yorkers, helping New York grow into the world’s top city. Horizontally comparing with New York Central Park, we hope that Liaojiagou City Central Park will bring new vitality to Yangzhou’s urban development, Yangzhou’s ecological environment and Yangzhou’s people’s life, and truly realize the great rejuvenation of Yangzhou, the world’s famous city, in the post-lean West Lake era towards prosperous ecology. Looking forward to the continuous renewal and development of Central Park…
