Urban development experts, city managers and entrepreneur representatives all over the world gathered at Tianfu New Area, where the Park City Concept Began, to discuss the vision of future cities.
Tianfu New Area, a state-level new area approved by the Chinese government in October 2014, has a planned total area of 1,578km2, including 564km2 directly managed by Chengdu Municipal Corporation. With "70% blue-green space", "1200km Tianfu ecological green road", and "the completely buried underground sewage treatment", Rongcheng (Chengdu) is full of green and flowers, and the urban greens of Tianfu New Area has gradually appeared.
When visiting Tianfu New Area on February 11, 2018, President Xi Jinping of China pointed out that Tianfu New Area is an important node for the "Belt and Road" initiative and the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, and must be well-planned and built, and especially it needs to retain the characteristics of the Park City, take ecological value into account, and strive to create a new urban growth narrative and eventually become an open economic highland in Mainland China. This was the first time that China has publicly put forward the concept of Park City construction. The Park City is listed as a new path to Chengdu's future urban development.
In the 2nd Park City Forum, Chengdu China revealed the business vision of "Park City under the snow mountain", and as the world's only city with a 10-million+ population and a stunning view of the snow-capped mountains located at a distance of 5,000m, Chengdu has attracted attention worldwide.
Tianfu New Area, as "the first place of the Park City", has been exploring and practicing the new development concept of Park City in the past three years. The whole Tianfu New Area is re-creating the idyllic scenery of "push the window to see the field and open the door to see the green" and the ecological background of "forest and lake intersections", and focuses on anchoring the ecological skeleton, anchoring the blue and green space and anchoring the relationship between man and nature, plans production and living ecological space as a whole, arranges the urban layout near the mountain and along the water, strengthens the balance of work and residence, and promotes the integration of production and city.
Tianfu New Area system integrates the scientific and complete Park City work system, sets up the first Park City construction bureau in the whole country, establishes the Park City research institute, innovates the work mechanism of "technologically lead by 5 chief engineers", builds 1536 planning system, and fully advances the Park City construction based on the strategic goal of "three steps".
Tianfu New Area deeply grasps the basic connotation of the sustainably developing Park City, advances the Park City construction with the concept of life community of "city with mountain, water, forest and lake", and explores to form the general idea of "1436" of the Park City of "1 development paradigm, 4 times guidance, 3 practice paths and 6 value goals".
Tianfu New Area shapes the beautiful form of the Park City with blue and green intertwining, constructs the city space integrating big open and big close with urban green based on the natural ecology of the mountains and rivers, and initially realizes the "three-level leap" from the development along the road to the development with the green, from the space construction to the scene construction, and from the form creation to the artistic conception shaping.
Tianfu New Area vividly interprets the people-oriented core value of the Park City, by taking the logical transformation of Chengdu from "integrated development of industry, city and people" (taking the city as the foundation, the industry as the safeguard, and the enhancement of human life quality as the goal) to "integrated development of people, city and industry" (gathering people by the city, gathering industry by the people, and revitalizing the city by the industry) as the guide, it keeps enriching the Park City scene construction, optimizes the service function to create the quality life, and vividly implements the original mission of "the city makes the life better".

Tianfu New Area is drawing on the world's advanced urban development experience, highlighting the human-centered, and building the Park City integrating natural and human beauty, so as to achieve the construction of a harmonious urban environment of "people, city, environment and industry".

Some people describe Tianfu New Area as: "If you want to work, just one step out, you can go into the office building; if you want life, just one step in, you can see a big park." This is a typical example of the future city.
