Imagine a network of greenways 1,900 kilometers long that extends reach to sightseeing and historical sites around the city!
EXTENSIVE GREENWAY NETWORK
Chengdu Urban and Rural Construction Commission announced on Sept.1 an ambitious plan to create a spreading-out greenway network that will connect most of the urban areas of Chengdu, part of the city's continuing efforts of adding green spaces and improving the ecological environment in order to promote the city's comprehensive competitiveness.
SIGHTSEEING & HISTORICAL SITES LINKED
According to the plan, the greenway network will consist of the existing and to-be-made fitness greenways with a total length of about 1,900 kilometers linking sightseeing and historical sites including mountain and water scenes, countryside travel spots, various sports, shopping and recreational venues and so on.
INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS
The construction of the network will be carried out in line with international standards and facilities will be upgraded, while the greenways will be designed to serve various functions, i.e. for biking and other sports activities, sightseeing, theme tourism, recreational programs, emergency sheltering and so on.
Bike around the City
A bike ride around the city will not only make you feel invigorated but also give you the opportunities to see the city's most beautiful sights. Here we recommend four greenways that are best known among cyclists in the city.
Eastern Chengdu: Jinjiang 198 LOHAS
An easily accessible greenway for the downtown dwellers with a total length of 12.8km, close to the Golden Port Circuit and Galway Park. Good views of rivers, flying egrets and more at the LOHAS art museum.
Southern Chengdu: Shuangliu Greenway
The longest greenway in Chengdu, Shuangliu Greenway has a total length of 237.6 km and provides a close look to several fruit farms and scenic spots for cyclist to enjoy the pleasant rural scenery on the way.
Western Chengdu: Wenjiang Greenway
Often named as "the best greenway for cyclists", the path has a total length of 67 km. Part of the path runs along the Jiang'an River and offers very agreeable sights of lush vegetation, flower fields and historical sites.
Northern Chengdu: Shaxi Greenway
The greenway in Pidu District in northwestern Chengdu consists of two branches, one for flower appreciation the other for river sights. The 26 km-long path also provides green spaces for jogging, playing games and recreational activities. A visit to neighboring farm houses will prove a worthy respite for cyclists.
