The Second Hebei Garden Expo opened on July 16 in Qinhuangdao and will run through October 18. The expo features 40 distinctive gardens throughout its 133-hectare expo park in the Qinhuangdao Economic and Technological Development Zone, at the foot of Qiyun Mountain.

The gardens in the north of the expo park represent Hebei's typical landscapes, grouped into three types: mountain and plateau; forest and grassland; and rivers, lakes and wetland. 

Those in the south are divided into four sections: gardens featuring scenery of the regions south of the Yangtze River , Fujian and Taiwan, Europe and Southeast Asia; single-variety gardens; replicas of botanical gardens in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region; and themed gardens. The latter include gardens build around the themes of health preservation, sponge city, fun for children and courtyard designs.

The expo as a whole has a green theme, with the construction of its expo park integrated into local efforts to repair the ecology of the Qiyun Mountain former mining site.

With a total investment of 1.8 billion yuan, the expo park represents the largest-ever greening project in Qinhuangdao.

In addition, as a sign of Hebei's pursuit of green development, new materials and technologies have been widely used across the expo park to digitalize management and services, and to make the expo a low-carbon, green and intelligent one that operates as a sponge city by absorbing and reusing rainwater runoff.

According to China's plan for coordinated development in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Hebei is designated as a vital area for ecological conservation in the region.
