Ecological City

In recent years great emphasis has been put on the greening of the city by local government with a number of parks being build and opened to the public. The projects that have been finished are the construction of Zhijiabu Park and the Eastern City Wall Belt Park, the landscaping of Wenying Lake Park, Yuhe River, Shili River and the construction of the Kouquan Botanic Garden. So far there are more than ten parks in the Datong urban area. The completion of these greening projects have greatly improved the ecological environment of the city and at the same time contributed to the urban landscape. On 14th January 2014 Datong was proclaimed as ‘National Garden City’ by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.
