Shanghai Backs Fruit Gardens
Adjust font size:

Shanghai will have five public fruit gardens and five forest parks by 2007, city greening officials said yesterday.

One of the fruit gardens, Malu Vineyard, has already opened, according to Ding Qinhua, vice director of the Shanghai Forest Resources Management Department.

The Jiading District vineyard boasts a "Grape Corridor" that opened last week, where tourists can pick grapes for 50 yuan (US$6) per kilogram. In addition, a grape trellis will be built by the vineyard's lake before the end of the year.

"Couples can ride boats past the grape trellis," said Ding. "It will be rather romantic."

Both highway A12, and city tour bus No. 8 lead to the vineyard. Entry costs 30 yuan each.

In Nanhui District, the Nanhui Peach Expo Park will have its welcome map out next April. All-you-can-eat peaches will cost each person 60 yuan.

Two of the five forest parks will be in Fengxian District. The Shenlong Ecological Park, opened this March, and the National Gulf Forest Park, scheduled to open next year, are the nearest camping sites from the city center. Daily buses to Shenlong are already running from the bus center.

The Hanyang Forest Resort in Songjiang District will also open early next year. Started in 1995, the resort now has over 1.5 million trees.
