Xiong'an Countryside Park, or Xiong'an Jiaoye park in Xiong'an New Area, Hebei province, held trial operations on Sunday.
Located in the northern part of the Xiong'an Rongdong region, Xiong'an Countryside Park is about 1.5 times the size of the Olympic Forest Park in the north of Beijing and covers 18 square kilometers. Xiong'an Countryside Park is aimed at building a green and ecological area to make the new city livable.
The park has 14 forested areas, as well as 14 city-themed pavilions showcasing specialties from the province's 11 prefecture-level cities, two county-level cities and Xiong'an. There is also a main pavilion featuring green expositions of the area.
Xiong'an new area is becoming a new economic zone for Beijing since its establishment in 2017. It will play a significant role in the country's national strategy involving the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
