International horticultural expo park for Shenzhen

SHENZHEN in south China's Guangdong province is to spend 235.8 million yuan (RM108mil) building a park to stage a half-yearly international horticultural exposition next year. 

The fifth China (Shenzhen) International Horticultural and Floral Exposition, due to open on Sept 16 next year, is expected to be the largest event of its kind with visitors estimated to reach three million.  

The park, covering 66ha, will be the largest garden ever built in Shenzhen, a city known as a pioneer in China's reform and opening-up drive which started in 1978. 

The park will consist of a display hall, two display rooms, three scenic spots featuring foreign, Chinese and Guangdong horticulture and three gardens growing shade and climbing plants and melons and fruits, and another garden featuring marshland horticulture. – People's Daily
