Baoan Waterfront Park is an essential amenity for future residents of Shenzhen’s rapidly expanding Qianhai area, and is also an important connection between the urban fabric and the ocean. The key landscape framework for the park are its riverine interpretation aspects and water’s edge programs. The “Eco River” will bring water experiences into the green space and serve as a connection between all of the site’s important nodes. The river’s edge is designed as a continuation of the Qianhai Waterfront, with a series of spaces and programs. The waterfront will feature integrate tourist attractions and cultural interpretation, along with elements celebrating Qianhai’s movement toward the future as a green city.
