Eco sky walk to welcome walkers, and support nature, in Fuzhou
A sky trail named Fu Path, which winds through 19 kilometers, will open to the public at the end of this year in Fuzhou, capital of southeast China’s Fujian Province.
The steel-framed trail decked with grated plates adopts a hollow-carved design, the first of its kind in China. Such a design allows the plants under the trail to be exposed to the sun as much as possible.
It will take walkers a few hours to finish the overall path, the length of which is equivalent to 50 rounds of a 400-meter athletic track field.
The path, located over a wide piece of green land, links the city’s five parks. The lake in the middle, which was a stinking ditch before, has become clear again and can be used to irrigate the plants in the park after clean-up and rectification.
The trail’s designer is also the one behind the Forest Walk in Singapore, which is a step-free elevated walkway in a series of zig-zags across Telok Blangah Hill and on to Alexandra Arch.
