A pocket park was built at the cottage area on Xingfu East Street by Tiyuguanlu Subdistrict of Dongcheng District in Beijing recently.

The location of this park was used to be a wasteland with great safety hazards as there were lots of mosquitos breeding in summer and withered branches and grass piled up in autumn and winter.

After repeated field investigation and public consultation, the subdistrict decided to transform it into a pocket park by retaining the original green plants and adding more plants like shrubs and hydrangeas.

Chen Siqing, deputy director of the Tiyuguanlu Subdistrict Office, introduced that due to limited space, the cottage area lacks fitness equipment, so the pocket park opens a fitness area to allow residents to exercise on their doorstep.

In addition, a special walkway is paved at the park to facilitate elders’ travel to the adjoining elderly care center.
