It is the main host site of the 2020 Harbin Songhua River Ice and Snow Carnival.
The park is a public benefit project sponsored by the government of Daoli district and is being organized by Harbin Modern Group Co, to promote winter tourism in the northern city.
It occupies an area of 11 million square meters and features four different areas for ice and snow sightseeing, as well as entertainment activities such as skating, ice hockey, ice slides and snow mobiles.
It also highlights a 50,000-square-meter area with the display of exactly 2,020 snowmen to mark the arrival of 2020.
Around 20,000 cubic meters of ice and 150,000 cu m of snow were cut and delivered to the park during its construction.
This year is the second time Harbin has constructed such a carnival park.
The first operating park of its kind was voted most popular travel destination in the Northeast China region, during last year’s Chinese Spring Festival holidays.
During the carnival, improved services including sightseeing cars, cold shelters and medical service are being offered to tourists.
Harbin regained the honorary title of "National Civilized City" on Aug 21.
Harbin Economic and Development Zone recently issued measures for the innovative development of the industrial chain.
The Harbin area of China (Heilongjiang) Pilot Free Trade Zone recently moved to streamline its small business licensing regulations to help stimulate the zone’s economy.
Heilongjiang province will leverage all its formidable array of natural advantages to develop its popular winter tourism.
