The construction of the Century Park is Pudong's response to the call for more green space. There is a large, tranquil lake in the park and a few man-made hills here and there, making the Park the only place in Shanghai with hills. Now those hills are covered with trees, as is the entire park. The park is designed successfully as a proper combination of Eastern and Western cultures featuring harmony between man and nature.
There are seven large scenic areas, including a pastoral area, a sightseeing area, a bird-protecting Area, an international garden area, a mini golf court, in addition to music fountains, a century flower clock, and the Green World Relief Sculpture, which is regarded as the symbol of the entire Park.
The park is connected to the well-known Century Square by a path.
