Respecting the status of plants, the design retains the site's most valuable treasure
Zhongkang Park was built in the early 1990s. Over the years, the infrastructure has been damaged, leaving 56 litchi trees and several big trees on the site. At the beginning of the design, the designer returned to the site for detailed surveying and mapping, and retained the litchi forest as a whole, and rechecked the points of the key trees. The design fully combines the current situation, and the layout of space and facilities should be based on the existing plants to borrow scenes as far as possible.

The memory of the site is continued and the cultural elements unite the community.
To continue the memory of the site as the principle, respect the site attributes, excavate the cultural characteristics of the park.
