Shanghai's largest sponge park to open

Shanghai's largest sponge park to open

Described as the city's largest sponge park that reuses rainwater, a new park in Lingang Special Area in Shanghai's Pudong New Area will be open to the public for free this month. Covering an area of 540,000 square meters, the park will feature four major areas themed around the universe, astronomy, and stars.

 

"The park will act as 'a large sponge' that channels the flow of rainwater into a drainage system, that comprises drainage pipe networks, grass ditches, and a runoff water utilization system," said Xu Gang, manager of the Shanghai branch of China Urban Development Planning and Design Consulting Company.

 

To raise awareness about the concept of a sponge park to the public, a 30,000-square-meter area within the park has been designed to showcase this process of reusing rainwater. According to official data, 15,000 cubic meters of rainwater will be purified in the area every day. Visitors to the park will also get to view local plants as well as foreign ones such as North American crabapple and Japanese evening cherry.
