Accordingly, the expanded APEC Garden Statue project is invested by the Management Board of Infrastructure Construction and Urban Development Project, with a total investment of 759 billion VND (32.59 million USD), sourced from the municipal budget.

Located next to the current park, the expansion area covers 6,668sq.m in Hai Chau district’s Binh Hien ward.

A two-storey dome will be at the centre of the expansion, featuring a garden, an artificial hill, a fountain, pastures and walking routes. The structure will have a basement spanning 3,027sq.m for parking and technical management. The first storey, covering 2,750sq.m, will be the location for leisure activities, souvenir shops, an information service area and public restrooms. The 790sq.m upper storey, meanwhile, is designed for communal activities with trees, a lake and a walking route.

Da Nang CIty People's Committee said that the project is in accordance with the aspirations of the majority of the people of the city, as it not only creates an architectural highlight to the West of Dragon Bridge, but also meets the needs of enjoying green space and entertainment of city people and visitors./.
