Enjoy river wind in Beibin Road Footpath
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- “Let’s go to take a walk along Beibin Road Footpath!”
Since its completion in April last year, the footpath from Jiahua Bridge to Shimen Bridge of Beibin Road in Jiangbei District has not only become a good place for many citizens and tourists to experience the “slow life” in close proximity to the river, but also attracted many running and cycling teams.
Recently, a reporter of Chongqing Daily came to Beibin Road Footpath to inquire. The river breeze was blowing, the sun was warm, a lot of runners who come to exercise were running against the river breeze on the orange fitness track, and groups of cyclists were sweating on the blue bike track.
Walking along the Footpath, people can see colorful seasonal flowers everywhere. Along the way, flower beds, lawns and landscape sculptures on the relief walls add vitality to the footpath and also show the development and change history of the mountain city.
“It is close to river, with beautiful environment and spacious places, so we take exercise here every day!” On the Footpath, a dance team composed of more than 20 senior citizens attracted many tourists to stop and watch. With the cheerful music playing, they danced with smiles on their faces.
“Chongqing has many terraces and slopes, so there are few places for citizens to ride a bike, but now it has not only special bike lanes, but also it’s also close to home and has beautiful environment,” said Wu Weidong, a citizen who came to take exercise.
