The biggest riverside park along Suzhou Creek will be built in the Changfeng area of Putuo District.
The park, covering 350,000 square meters, equivalent to about 50 standard football pitches, will include sports and exercise facilities, preserved industrial heritages, cruise ship docks, children's parks and ecological gardens.
It will become a key part of the 21-kilometer-long Suzhou Creek waterfront path in Putuo. Riverside attractions along the path include the Suzhou Creek Industrial Civilization Museum, the Tian'an 1,000 Trees mall and the Shanghai Children's Library.
A total of 26 service stations will be built along the path to offer various services to residents and tourists.
A cycling race was launched along the riverside path over the weekend to invite participants to enjoy the riverside scenery of parks, docks and preserved chimneys along the route.
A new half marathon race along the path, which features the city's early industrial heritages, will also be unveiled soon. The new event along the creek will highlight the comfortable living environment as well as the vitality of Shanghai, according to the Putuo government.
