Traditional Chinese Garden for Adelaide Parklands

Posted on March 2, 2016 by

2016 has been deemed an auspicious year to construct a new, traditional Chinese Garden in Adelaide’s parklands – as we approach the 15th anniversary of our sister city relationship with Qingdao, the 30th anniversary of our sister province relationship with Shandong, and the 10th anniversary since a similar proposal was considered by the Adelaide City Council.

Aaron Duff of the University of Adelaide is calling for the new Chinese garden, to demonstrate to Chinese investors and governments “that we’re not only interested in their money”. Duff encourages the southern parklands for the garden’s location, and uses Sydney’s Chinese Garden of Friendship as an example, saying the attraction “is now one of the biggest tourist attractions” in the city.
