Shuangzhu Park – a comprehensive park built in 1987 that covers nearly 20 hectares in Qingdao West Coast New Area (Qingdao WCNA) - reopened to the public on June 1 after six months of upgrades.

To address the recreational and exercise demands of local residents, more high-quality public facilities have been built in the park.

Shuangzhu Park's new red and blue fitness tracks form a tight loop around the entire park. Around the paths, there are amenities such as a fitness square for people of all ages, a children's playground, and a sports field, making the park a great spot for families to spend their weekends.

The park's lighting system has been enhanced with the addition of street lamps, wall lamps, tree lamps, spot lamps, and projection lamps, which not only enhance the park's night scenery but also allow visitors to participate in night tours.

A performance stage equipped with fixed bluetooth speakers has also been added near the fitness square, which meets the needs of square dancing enthusiasts.

The park has been upgraded to provide more attractive natural scenery. The aquatic plants in Longshan Lake are now mostly lotuses, with some water lilies and emergent plants thrown in for good measure.

Six Victoria lilies have been planted on both sides of the Hanbi Bridge. They will develop massive disc-like leaves that float on the water and can support the weight of a child.
