A "520" (我爱你) running/jogging venue is being held today at Zhongji Hai, to the west of Lijiang stadium of Gucheng district.
Zhongji (中济) is an enormous 173 acres (1050 mu) newly erected park connecting both north and south Zhongji resovoirs. It touts a spacious jogging/biking path that meander continuously for over 4km in an infinity shaped loop. The lap encompasses not only green and lake spaces with backdrop of the gorgeous Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, but all state of the art facilities Zhongji park offers for the public free of charge; skate park for skateboarders and even a dirt obstacle course mound for bicycles like those seen in the Summer Olympics. A 15 to 20-meter rock climbing wall, a small croquet field, soccer field, tennis courts, badminton courts, basketball courts, modern playgrounds for kids, plethora of wooden plank bridges, walking trails, viewing decks and seating areas. Even a spanking new Olympic size pool swimming facility across the street to the East.
The Lijiang city government splurged on this one.
