A new beachfront park on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street, which runs along the coast in Da Nang City, opened to the public this week as part of a larger plan to create more public beachfront spaces in the coastal city.

According to the plan, three more beachfront parks are scheduled to open by the end of this year, and the city government is currently working with investors to build a public path to the Ngu Hanh Son coastal area.  

Public support for new parks

For decades, Nguyen Van Tuan, 57, has spent his mornings cycling on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street and swimming at local beaches.

As a longtime resident, the new park, named Ha Khe Park, is a very welcome treat.

“In the past, the area was full of garbage and weeds. People would often just use the area as a toilet.

“Now, it’s completely different. Everyone enjoys the new park,” said Tuan.

Ha Khe has also become an evening gathering spot for local residents looking to enjoy the new outdoor space once the sun sets and temperature drops.

It is considered a “five-star” location and will complement another park slated to open on the other end of Nguyen Tat Thanh Street later this year.

The other two beachfront parks scheduled to open in Da Nang later this year include one on Nguyen An Ninh Street in the city’s Lien Chieu District and another on Nguyen Sinh Sac Street in the same district.

More public entrances to beaches

The Da Nang People’s Committee recently issued Announcement No. 331 to remedy shortcomings related to several coastal construction projects, particularly the fact that many of these projects block access to local beaches.

As such, the document calls on certain projects to be replaced by beachfront parks and public entrances to beaches.

The local government has recently built five entrances to beaches in the Ngu Hanh Son coastal area.

These include a 6,680-square-meter entrance at the end of Ho Xuan Huong Street, a 12,236-square-meter entrance located between the Furama and Ariyana resorts, a 1,911-square-meter entrance to the south of the Silver Shores Hotel, a 2,716-square-meter entrance to the north of The Song Hotel, and a 10,397-square-meter entrance located between the Future Property and Nam Khang projects.

The local government has also approved the plan building the Nam O ecotourism site project, which includes a park and a parking area on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street, as well as five public entrances to local beaches.

Investors for the Nam O Ecotourism site have also been asked to build entrances to nearby beaches and Nam O Reef.

According to Lien Chieu District’s People Committee, the 7,217-square-meter Ha Khe Park on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street was built by Trung Thuy Da Nang Company, who is also the investor behind Nam O Ecotourism Site and is responsible for building five public entrances to local beaches.

The district will manage the entrances once they are complete.

A representative of Trung Thuy Da Nang Company said that, aside from the five entrances and the park at the end of Nguyen Tat Thanh Street, the company is in charge of embellishing landscape and protecting the environment around Nam O Reef.

The company will invest around VND200 billion (US$8.5 million) in the public projects.

Tran Phuoc Son, vice chairman of Da Nang City’s People Committee, worked with an architecture and design consulting unit to develop the landscape along Nguyen Tat Thanh Street.

Son then requested that the Da Nang Construction Planning Institute to cooperate with the consulting company to create a design for the project, inclusive of several public facilities.

He also noted that Nguyen Tat Thanh Street is often affected by inclement weather, especially during rainy season, and therefore planners must be selective in the plants they use for the local landscaping.  

In addition, a plan must also be created to ensure the lighting system is suitable for ongoing tourism projects on the street.

These projects will be highlights of Da Nang Bay, serving locals as well as attracting more investors to northwest Da Nang, said Le The Nhan, vice chairman of Lien Chieu District’s People Committee.
