REDISCOVERING BACH DANG WHARF PARK

February 21.2022

 

Bach Dang Wharf Park in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City has been finally renovated, providing more space for walking around and watching the river, as well as more entertainment options in an airy and cool atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

The renovation and embellishment of this park from the border of the Thu Ngu flagpole construction area to the Bach Dang wharf area had a total estimated cost of 26 billion VND for renovation, which includes the construction of walkways, planting of green areas, installation of lighting systems, automatic watering systems, renovation of some public buildings, and so on.

 

 

 

 

To accommodate this work, nearly 200 centenary trees had to be removed; 146 were completely cut down, while the remaining 32 were relocated. The park is divided into three sections: one for historical monuments covering 4,000 square meters, another for tourism covering 5,150 square meters, and a community park covering 2,750 square meters.

 

 

 

 

Bach Dang Wharf is located in District 1 near the Sai Gon River, near the Monument of General Tran Hung Dao, which was built on Ton Duc Thang Street to commemorate the glorious victory over the Yuanmeng invaders on the Bach Dang River in 1288.
