Old Shanghai Airport Turned Into a Park
As part of an urban redevelopment effort, a stunning new park has been erected on the runway of what was once Shanghai’s only civilian airport. Authorities separated the 1830-meter-long Xuhui Runway Park into a succession of smaller gardens and planted spaces in the city’s Xuhui riverfront district.
Throughout the park, there are a number of restaurants and public service facilities to accommodate modest social groups. Parts of the original runway concrete were used in the design. These include incorporating them into the birdwatching grove to create intricate resting areas.
