Located southeast of the intersection of Tongyu and Huangzhukeng roads in Shahu Community, Biling Subdistrict, the park covers an area of roughly 57,000 square meters.

Four zones are set up in the park, with 21 featured scenic spots. The park has a children’s library that offers space for reading, activities and exhibition.

Renmin Park Reopens

MOST parts of Shenzhen Renmin Park reopened to the public starting Friday, DT News reported. The then 38-year-old park, famous for its Chinese roses, closed for reconstruction in 2021.

The newly rebuilt park now has a 1-kilometer runway around the lake and installed intelligent outdoor fitness equipment and children’s facilities.

There is still work underway for the area at the east gate and park’s public restrooms.

Residents can make reservations for parking spots through the “美丽深圳” WeChat account when the park opens its parking reservation service in the near future. A negative 72-hour nucleic acid test result and travel code are needed before entering the park.

A FLEET of 5,000 cabs from 43 cab companies will offer free rides to examination takers of the National College Entrance Examination, which will be held June 7-9, across the city.
