Tiananmen Square to get more flower power
Published on Mar 29, 2011
Authorities in Beijing are planning to give Tiananmen Square a colourful makeover, with the planting of hundreds of shrubs and flowers. The Beijing News reported that the 9,000m2 lawn areas, which flank the huge square, will be replaced with plants and flowers in an effort to make the area more visually appealing. The project started on Wednesday and will be finished by late April, the report said. The lawns were previously dug up and replaced with flowers every October to mark China’s National Flower Day, but were subsequently replaced with grass.
