With the planning area of 11.4 square kilometers, Guang Ming Town is located in the eastern part of Guang Ming New District and borders Gongming Reservoir and Guang Ming Dadingling Forest Park to the east, Guanguang Road to the south, Guangqiao Road to the west and Zhenyuan Road to the north. Relying on the strength of industries and new town development of Guang Ming New District and the ecological resources of Gongming Reservoir and Guang Ming Forest Park, Guang Ming Town upholds the development concept of “ecological priority, protection first, rational utilization and cultural display” and explores the development pattern of “culture + tourism + urbanization” with ecological agriculture as base, tourism as engine, culture as supplement and technology as means, to create an eco-agricultural tourism town integrating urban agriculture, leisure and vacationing, cultural experience and sports life and combining “urban services and rural ecology”. This project is designed for building an internationally renowned eco-agricultural tourism town, a sample of integrated urban and rural lifestyles and a benchmark for urban double repair and green development. Guang Ming Town Forest & Sports Park is located in the southern part of Guang Ming Town, with the planning area of about 6 square kilometers, occupying 50% of the total planning area of the whole town. It is of critical ecological value and public leisure service value. In order to fully realize the value of Guang Ming Town Forest & Sports Park, build a model park in suburbs, and improve the image and function of Guang Ming New District, the Management Committee of Shenzhen Guang Ming New District organizes an international competition of conceptual scheme design for Guang Ming Town Forest & Sports Park, where excellent design agencies at home and abroad are all welcomed to put forward perspective, innovative and feasible design schemes on the basis of existing Master Plan of Guang Ming Town, Overall Planning of Guang Ming Town Sports & Forest Park and other relevant plans.Location Map of Guang Ming Town Forest & Sports Park
