Wisteria Park to start night tour

( ) 2015-05-22

The Wisteria Park in Jiading district intends to start night tours next year to satisfy the large number of visitors swarming to the 10,000-square-meter park during wisteria blossom season.

This year, more than 500,000 people visited the park from middle April to early May, the best time to view wisteria plants. Some visitors came from Hebei and Henan provinces especially for the wisteria blossoms.

Jiading Wisteria Park is one of the only three wisteria parks in the world. It has 28 varieties of more than 100 wisteria trees. The Japanese-style wisteria park opened in 2000 to celebrate Jiading’s friendly cooperation with Wake Town of Okayama Prefecture in Japan.

The park has installed lighting equipment for next season’s night trips, according to local tourism authorities.

Meanwhile, more wisteria trees will be planted in various spots, including at Huangdu Avenue in Huangdu town, Shanghai Auto Expo in Anting town and Jiading New City. A wisteria corridor will be built in the green belt along the river.
