More than 20 thousand plants including verbena and purple coneflower, as well as over 80 thousand trees and shrubs such as cedar and weeping forsythia have been introduced into the Sui and Tang Dynasties City Ruins Botanical Garden.


The recreation yard including the playground and fitness zone, covers 7000 square meters and was set up for children and visitors that go to the Luoyang Peony Park.

Additionally, the parks in the city have improved the public facilities, upgrading the toilets, chairs, rubbish bins and information boards. They have also started training on etiquette and volunteer services.
