Shenzhen mountain parks using HK concepts

    SHENZHEN resident Zhao Liguang said he’s a frequent hiker who spends most of his weekends hiking with friends and family members in Shenzhen’s mountain parks, such as Wutong Mountain, Tanglang Mountain and Yangtai Mountain.

    “The air quality is excellent and my heath has been greatly improved through exercise here,” Zhao said of the parks.

    Wutong Mountain, the only State-level scenic spot in the city, attracts tens of thousands of residents a day for recreation and exercise. It’s an example of how Shenzhen planners have built mountain parks modeled on concepts of conservation, recreation and education that have been practiced in Hong Kong for 40 years.

    Shenzhen’s urban administration is speeding up construction and planning of mountain and nature parks in the city. Nineteen such parks are planned, in progress or completed, covering 253 square kilometers and accounting for about 14 percent of the city’s total area.

    Shenzhen is cooperating with Hong Kong in ecological protection efforts, and Wutong Mountain park managers are exchanging ideas on creating habitats and natural areas to facilitate animals’ migration.

    Following practices developed in Hong Kong, Shenzhen is improving its park signs and guidance systems to prevent hikers from getting lost. More restrooms and public rest spots will be built along hiking trails, similar to facilities on Hong Kong’s popular, long-distance hiking trails.
