The Forest Peninsula Park on the outskirts of Shanghai is a new 14.6 ha. public park lying between two canals and designed to service a large new mixed use development. Dan Pearson Studio were asked to create a park using over 1000 mature transplanted camphor trees. In addition to the forested areas the park will include water terraces, productive kitchen gardens, lotus ponds and a wet-grassland area set around a cultural centre. The canals are to be transformed into more natural meandering rivers to maximise opportunities for wildlife.
