Putuo parks have extended the opening hours for residents to have more leisure in summer nights, according to the district’s greening department.
Altogether 17 parks in the district have announced their new timetables. Apart from Changfeng Park and Changshou Park, which will open until 9:30pm, the rest 15 parks will receive visitors until 9pm.
To ensure the landscape effect and security at night, staff in the parks have checked the lightings and installed more caution lamps on the river bank. Stairs and fences have gone through maintenance work as well.
The parks will arrange more nighttime patrols in case of any emergency.
The summer timetable is set to last until the end of October, but there may be some adjustments.
