Inside the about-400,000-square-meter mountain park, the cycleway features prominently. As a comprehensive sports and life park that integrates sports and leisure, it is home to a lot of green plants and offers a new urban open space for Chongqing. Here, you can feel the breath of all things, relax your body and mind, experience the wilderness of nature, and explore nature.

The park’s many attractions include a children’s playground, located in the park’s northeast corner. It is also the largest node area in the park, including grasslands, sandpits, and grove where children can run free under flowering trees, chase after each other in the grass, and look for happiness in nature.

Although the park has just opened, many children are already enjoying themselves here. There are various amusement facilities in the children’s playground. According to the height difference of the facilities on the playground, a slope is designed for children to play, and there are slides, children’s climbing nets, and ropes on it. Children can fully experience climbing and have fun doing it.

There are many swings, tires, sandpits, and so on in other areas, providing a place where children can have a great time.

The Chongqing OCT Sports & Life Park combines natural landforms with modern sports, retains primitive vegetation and ecological landscape to the greatest extent, and is a place for both sports and leisure. At the same time, the park is also an important location for sightseeing on Mountain City Trails in Liangjiang New Area and an essential part of the Lijia Ecological Green Axis.

Following the principle of “putting nature first” and based on the needs of citizens, Chongqing OCT plans to build the first hilly Happy Valley in China, Playa Maya Water Park, Ecological Family Park, Sports & Life Park, and Riverside Leisure Belt. Thus, it aims to bring residents a lifestyle of “getting home after crossing the park” that combines the unique characteristics of Chongqing and OCT.

At present, Chongqing Happy Valley, Playa Maya Water Park, Sports & Life Park, and Riverside Leisure Belt have been completed and opened successively, and some parts of the Ecological Family Park have also been opened. In addition, there are Lijia Intelligent Park, Lijia Mountain City Footpath, Longzui Park, and others in Lijia Subdistrict, gracing the area’s natural environment with green plants.

To show its construction process and beautiful scenery, Chongqing OCT also held a retrospective photography exhibition under the theme of “going forward together with Liangjiang New Area.” Photographs with aesthetic charm and modern relevance record the evolution of the Lijia Subdistrict.

Today, Lijia Subdistrict is home to the Jialing River Bay with amazing sunsets, the trains running through a sea of clouds that have taken the country by storm, the green and intelligent park, and the exciting Happy Valley. Mountain, river, and city are in great harmony here, making Chongqing a veritably eco-friendly and livable city.
