Since the beginning of this year, many unique "pocket parks" have appeared on the street corners and around the communities of Wuhu City. Now citizens can see the greenery and have places for leisure, walking, and fitness when they go out.

In promoting urban construction, Wuhu Municipal Government has carried out overall planning in combination with urban renewal, old city renovation, and improvement of community public services. They tried to fully use small areas, such as the corners of streets and vacant land. Many "pocket parks" have been built around street corners and along the roads to further expand the urban green space, improve the city's quality, and bring vitality to the communities.

Through greening, paving, painting, adding functional facilities, introducing sports and cultural elements, and adding service functions, "pocket parks" create a "15-minute green life circle" for the citizens, allowing them to enjoy green spaces more conveniently and comfortably.

Wuhu city also incorporates the concept of the sponge city in constructing "pocket parks." It uses colored permeable concrete and bricks to enhance the ability of the paved area to deal with rainwater and uses sunken green spaces to store rainwater and relieve waterlogging pressure.

This year, Wuhu planned to build 50 "pocket parks" with a total area of about 268,900 square meters, and 38 of them have been completed so far, with a green area of 181,100 square meters.
