He expressed his hope that the first phase of the project will complete in 18 months as scheduled, ensuring the quality to international standards. He also asked investors to support locals who had to move to give space for the project.

The project is part of Hanoi’s plan to build 25 new parks, 3-5 of which meeting the international and regional standards, and plant one million trees until 2030.

The majority of the park will be covered by trees and lakes, giving spaces for visitors to enjoy the nature.

Together with modern games applying world cutting edge of technology, the park also comprises an art area and a Kim Quy cultural village to host large-scale art shows.-VNA
