Described as the city's largest sponge park that reuses rainwater, a new park in Lin-gang Special Area in Shanghai's Pudong New Area will be open to the public for free this month.

Covering an area of 540,000 square meters, the park will feature four major areas themed around the universe, astronomy and stars.

"The park will act as 'a large sponge' that channels the flow of rainwater into a drainage system, that comprises drainage pipe networks, grass ditches and a runoff water utilization system," said Xu Gang, manager of the Shanghai branch of China Urban Development Planning and Design Consulting Company.
