VILLAGERS PAY FOR AND CONSTRUCT THEIR OWN PARK
- - - -
TianHan village, in Changsha County, saw 126 villagers donate money, trees and contribute to the construction of a new local park.
Next to local vegetation fields, a tidy but pleasant park was built on farmland. The project was initiated by team leader, Li Ke. He said there are basketball courts, a long-jump pit, cobbled pathways and a fitness area, all contained within the 2300 square meter zone.
As there are a large number of elderly and young children in the surrounding area, leisure and fitness is a problem. So, Li Ke, a first-time village cadre, thought to lead his community to do something practical, hence the initiation of the idea to build a park.
