Guangming Centre District Science Park is the core park in the central area of ​​Guangming Science City, a new city. The science park is a high-profile supporting facility for the Guangming Science City and will be built into the “green heart” in northern Shenzhen in the future.

The Surbana Jurong landscape architecture team applied a design based on eco-sustainability and is proud to help Shenzhen build an exciting city destination.  The masterplan of this Urban Eco-Park is unique as it combines three sensitive landscapes, namely a mountainous hilly, a waterfront and a wetland. With Integrated landscape components with artificial intelligence to create new experiences for park users, the masterplan also incorporates urban farming in the Bay Area as well to support the emerging new city of Guangming.
