    DAPENG Geological Park, a much-anticipated national park on Dapeng Peninsula in eastern Shenzhen, is expected to open this year and will be free for visitors.

    The first facilities to open will cover more than 8,000 square meters and include a geological museum, an education and research center, hiking trails and a coastal promenade, built with a total cost of more than 200 million yuan (US$32.4 million).

    “The park is different from other domestic geological parks in that visitors can appreciate both mountain and sea scenery here. Additionally, the park is home to volcanic rocks that formed after a volcano eruption 140 million years ago and coastal landforms that formed 20,000 years ago,” said Lai Tianbai, vice director of the park’s administrative department.

    More than one-third of the park is home to geological heritage sites, which park managers said highlight the park’s scientific education function.

    The museum will be a core part of the park and will use multimedia software to present images of different landforms taking shape over time, and of volcanic eruptions.

    A 35-million-yuan city fund has been used since 2010 to attract and develop exhibits.

    Park construction will continue in another two stages after the first facilities open. The park will fully meet tourism demands and implement a supervision and management system by 2015, plans state. Between 2016 and 2020, trails will be built in the Qiniang Mountain area and a sea travel route will be developed.
