Breathing Space in a Busy City
Dec 2020
I walked this green corridor in December 2020. It is located between the Yellow River and Nanbinhe Middle Road, Lanzhou in the Northwest section of the CBD. This green edge to the Yellow River is about 8 kilometres long and contains a diversity of gardens, walkways, cycleways, boat moorings, jetties, rotundas, paved activity areas, seating, sculptures, and small kiosks to buy drinks and snacks. It also has two large wooden waterwheels (but this is not the main Waterwheel Expo which is further to the east). Many locals go right to the water’s edge in some places though in Winter, I am unsure why. There are two major thoroughfares – one right next to the river, and one slightly higher through the gardens. When I walked through here, it was minus 10 degrees centigrade so the park was not as full as it would be in warmer weather. There were many small groups of people dancing to loud music with women in bright red dresses. Older men were flying kites, people were cycling (some serious), parents teaching children how to skate, groups of musicians were playing traditional instruments, people using brush and water to write calligraphy on paving stones, a few people were singing, and endless people strolling and chatting. This corridor is home to the famous Yellow River Mother Sculpture and another sculpture featuring the characters from “Journey to the West” (Priest Tripitaka, King Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy). This is one of the many ‘lungs’ of Lanzhou City and from my experience, an extremely well-designed greenspace for locals and tourists alike. After I walked through this green corridor, I then walked to the Zhongshan Bridge. You could easily spend 3 hours wandering through here if you have 3-4 days in Lanzhou.

Lanzhou's Going Green!
Aug 2020
The Green Corridor of Binhe Road is part of Lanzhou's ongoing attempt at going green. From what I understand, Lanzhou was very heavily polluted several years ago, particularly from very dirty industries. Since then, Lanzhou has worked to clean itself up and the Green Corridor is part of that effort.
