The parkland design regenerates native vegetation and creates micro eco-systems that will foster the local habitat.
A cleansing, bio-retention waterway will treat site run-off to support the health of the natural environment and the sustainable operation of the park.
The museum plaza opened to the public in 2015, and we are currently working on design development for the Tangshan Ape-man Cave Park surrounding the excavation site.
Construction of the wider parkland is progressing in stages, with feature gardens inspired by each period of the Paleozoic era part of the plan. From the rocky microbial soil crust of the Cambrian landscape through to the Silurian wetlands and Carboniferous swamp forest, the plants and elements within these sensory gardens will capture the essence of 'prehistoric' times.
