The riverfronts on both sides of the Huangpu were connected in a scenic 45-km trail and opened to the public last year. The trail has quickly become a new landmark in the city where people can walk, jog, cycle as well as enjoy river views, fresh air and public facilities.

While strolling through the trail, visitors can view the old and new aspects of the city in different sections along the river. The 2.8-km section of the trail in Yangpu district is home to many industrial facilities such as a cotton mill as well as Shanghai's first water and power plants, all of which have a history of almost 100 years. Meanwhile, the trail in Xuhui district features an array of museums and art galleries showcasing modern art.

"Significant changes have been made during these years, such as the addition of more greenery and public facilities, art galleries and coffee shops. Many more people stop by the trail these days to have a leisurely stroll," says Zhang Mengli, a 54-year-old resident who lives by the Huangpu in Pudong New Area.
