The “Origin” street garden in Caoyang Community

A new street garden will open to public during the National Day holiday next week at Caoyang Community, China’s first worker’s community built in the 1950s.

As part of the campaign to upgrade old residential communities, the garden will become the fifth street garden built by the greenery and sanitation authority of Putuo District this year.

Named “Origin,” it features colorful plants and orchids along with a flowing stream to create the ambiance of a tranquil natural valley. It gains its name also because the site was the place where the first residential building of Caoyang Community was built, according to the district government.

Caoyang Community in Putuo sprung up in 1951 as a home to model workers, forerunner to other workers’ communities that were built nationwide to accommodate the growing workforce during a period of rapid industrialization.
