DETAILS

LocationYichang, China
SERVICE:
Size297 acres (120 ha)

Moji Mountain, one of the most distinctive symbols of Yichang, now boasts the city’s largest public open space. The 120-hectare park is located along the banks of the Yangtze River, and has a rich historical connection to both the river and the city. De-forested in the past for agricultural uses, the mountain’s slopes have been replanted and now support a new forest that includes orchards. The master plan for the park builds upon these basic components, preserving natural and agricultural areas and expanding the recreational program into a series of adventure activity areas, including museums, agricultural exhibits, bridges, overlooks, and plazas. A resort hotel and a health camp village at the east end of the site will further serve to attract local visitors and tourists. In combination, the park and its associated development are a vital leisure and recreation amenity that will serve the people of Yichang as it continues to expand, preserving the mountain’s unique character and value to the city.
