The equestrian sports center, called Chengdu Jinma International Racecourse, is the crucial part of the emerging Chengdu International Sports City, an ambitious project in western Chengdu’s Wenjiang District. The sports city, located in Jinma Township, only about 15 km from Chengdu downtown, will cover a total area of 28 sq.km, including 4 sq.km water area, upon completion.
Essential construction work of the Chengdu Jinma International Racecourse, however, has already finished and the site has hosted a number of important equestrian sports events, including the National Tour Racing Finals, China equestrian festival, FEI Show-jumping World Cup (China Zone) and China National Equestrian Forum. Chengdu municipal government has decided to make the center a top-class horse racing venue in the country. The surrounding areas are dotted with holiday hotels, bars, and Western style shops.
The Floraland Amusement Park in Wenjiang is a large amusement park best known for its aquatic programs. The site is only 20 km from Chengdu downtown and close to eco-friendly environs in the surrounding areas, especially the horticulture gardens, the Green Path for cyclists along the Jiang’an River and numerous rural holiday resorts.
Floraland also has a community of Europe-style architecture, making it a favorite choice to take wedding photos. Local government of Wenjiang, in the drive to make the district one of top holiday tourism destinations in China, has planned to invest more on the amusement park, which will become a world-class amusement park and a popular site for leisure tourism.
