A story about Sanhe sports park – located in Hailing district in Taizhou city, in East China's Jiangsu province – was broadcast on China Central Television on Feb 6, as a great example of leveraging the green land of a park.
The broadcast comes in the wake of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, which recently released a guideline on the upgrade of green land. More activity areas are due to be designated on the green land of parks, to meet the demands for outdoor activities for residents.
Sanhe sports park covers an area of about 450 mu (30 hectares), of which the green area is about 400 mu. People can use various cultural, sports and tourism facilities there.
These include basketball courts, soccer fields, tennis courts, a 4-kilometer surfaced fitness trail, and rainbow sand pools, among others.
