The lawn at Bach Dang Wharf Park in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City has turned discolored after the removal of a recent festival's LED lighting system.

The grass dried up and turned brown. 

The flower beds interspersed with the grass have also become bare and desiccated.

Previously, LED lights were installed in these areas during festivals.

A number of people attribute the grass damage to the heat generated by the lights. 

They are calling for a renovation of the lawn.

This is not the first time that the lawn at Bach Dang Wharf Park has been affected by festival lighting activities. 

The park has been frequently chosen as a venue for numerous fests due to its prime location at the heart of Ho Chi Minh City since its inauguration in early 2022.

At the close of 2022, following a two-day culinary culture festival, the grass beds were also flattened and withered. 

In early August, the area was adorned with LED lights for the 2023 Ho Chi Minh City River Festival.
