A total investment of more than 17 billion CNY has been made and an area of 2,386 hectares of green space added.

In 2018, 74 new urban parks (gardens) and 60 rural parks have been planned to be built in the city. Forty-four (section) boulevards, 30 shade squares, 34 shade parks and 22 flower-lined roads (special flower beds) will be built; and an area of 123 thousand and 120 square meters will be afforested.

Changsha in this year will improve the quality of 10 street corners, 10 streets and courtyards, and 5 large residential areas; and will gradually complete 454 projects relating to "the blue sky defense". With these projects as the foundation, efforts will be continuously put to improve the urban and rural environment: 340 hectares of green land will be added into urban planning area; the green coverage rate of the city will reach 42%, the green space rate 35.6%, and the park area per capita 11.6 square meters.
