Xiamen was recently included on a list of China’s new pilot cities for ecology and urban landscape rejuvenation, according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People’s Republic of China.

The other 18 cities on the list are Fuzhou, Quanzhou, Zhangjiakou, Kaifeng, Luoyang, Xi’an, Yan’an, Nanjing, Ningbo, Harbin, Jingdezhen, Jingmen, Hulunbeier, Ulanhot, Guilin, Anshun, Xining, and Yinchuan.

The pilot cities were referred to as “Double Task Cities”/城市双修, which refers to cities focused on the rejuvenation of ecology and urban landscapes. The “Double Task Cities” program aims to improve the living environments in target cities.

By the end of 2020, Xiamen is expected to be a “Garden City” with more than 300 parks. The Xiamen City Planning Bureau revealed plans to add more than 200 parks to the city by the end of 2020, and a new ecological green space system will be created.

Facelift projects have been completed at several popular parks on Xiamen Island. Among those, Zhongshan Park, Xiamen’s oldest park, which features a children’s playground and a zoo, will reopen to the public by the end of May.
