A 5,000 km Oasis for Residents

Beijing is embarking on an ambitious project to create a 5,000 km greenway network by 2035, transforming the city into a greener, healthier haven for its residents. This comprehensive network will seamlessly connect the urban core with the surrounding plains and mountains, offering residents easy access to nature's embrace.

These greenways, as defined by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, are corridors built around natural elements. They link urban and rural green spaces, primarily for recreation and fitness, while also serving as pathways for green commuting and wildlife migration.

Since 2013, Beijing has actively pursued greenway development, with over 40 projects already underway. These include the Second Ring Road greenway, the "Three Mountains and Five Gardens" greenway, and the Garden Expo greenway. The existing 1,465 km of greenways have successfully restored and integrated ecological resources, fostering a harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.

The new plan prioritizes human-centric design, catering to the diverse needs of residents. It leverages technological advancements and smart applications to enhance connectivity, comfort, and accessibility throughout the network.

A total of 39 routes spanning over 2,000 km will blanket the city, connecting over 5,000 residential areas, 780 villages, more than 460 scenic spots and parks, around 460 historical and cultural sites, and over 150 subway stations.

The plan emphasizes the construction of 10 city-level branded greenways, with the Second Ring Road greenway serving as a prime example. This 33 km route will weave through iconic landmarks like the Ming City Wall Ruins Park and the Temple of Heaven Park, offering residents a historical and cultural immersion.

For residents like Bai Cuicui, the greenways have already become an integral part of their daily lives. She enjoys cycling to work on sunny days, surrounded by greenery, and even when driving, she can appreciate the verdant landscape.

Beijing's commitment to green development has earned it the prestigious title of "National Forest City." With its forest coverage reaching 44.9 percent, the city has met all 24 criteria required for this designation. This achievement reflects Beijing's dedication to balancing forest resource development, optimizing the ecological landscape, and enhancing public well-being. These efforts pave the way for Beijing's transformation into a world-class, harmonious, and livable capital.
