Expertsoverwhelmingly rejected the project,voting 99 to 1 against it. Theirarguments were convincing:Parks should be beautiful; who wouldwant to visit an area characterized by weeds and old broken downmachines?

  Despite the opposition, the park was completed in May 2001thanks to support from the local government. It was honored with anaward from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA)in 2002. Yu Kongjian became the first Chinese designer to be recognizedas such.
