Yesterday, Mr. Meng came to the White Horse public park to play, stumbled on the park’s west gate next to a large dry channels. He was very puzzled to go in a circle around the channels, before we know it is six years ago held the 10th National Games in Nanjing when the construction of the canoe drifting maneuver arena. “Go back a check to know, this is according to international standards for the construction of world-class stadium, how it stood it?” Mr. Meng is puzzled, “such a big project and not disposable chopsticks, idle is a waste ah, a pity!” He said very anxious.
correspondent then went to the White Horse Park. Just entered the door to see a rugged, another curved end of the concrete channel to do. Channels in the basic all dried up, the game’s obstacles facilities in good condition with stand tract. Occasionally a small puddle, spread a layer of green moss above, the bottom is mostly mud. In the midst of lush woods and lawn middle, dark Shidi looked very bleak. Reporters saw this piece of channel is only the lower end of the track, it is the White Horse Lake flanking.
“These are the new National Games when the original is a big lawn, these days,!” Walk in the garden of Mr. Yang told reporters that he has been living near the park for 30 years . “In the construction arena before we came here to party, the environment is also very good. Have had the National Games, no one asked, so much the stadium would ‘sleep’, and a waste ah!” Both before and after the change to Yang Lao very distressed.
have tried to open, but too few people to play
reporter came to the park office. “In the past it is really good!” Track six years ago for the construction and kayak race in the spectacular National Games was the main person in charge of any eighty-one still fresh in my memory. After the game, the park is also actively trying to run. “National Games, we have two years of opening up, visitors can play drifting,” he said when they go out to buy dozens of Guangdong 8-seater kayak, and some supporting facilities, and also with the drift ambulance personnel. Mr Yam said the operation was not a small initial investment, but the drift has a strong seasonal, only open in the days when hot. “In 2006 we are from May to October, 2007 is from May to July, then stopped in operation.”
“play not many tourists, a few tourists scattered to not worth once the pump, “he remembers spending most” strong “the day is also a four canoes into the water, lasted for more than 1 hour. Mr Yam told reporters calculations, track a total of four pumps pumping from the lake to the waterway. “A one-hour pump cost $ 400, in order to save our only open three, and later became two. A ticket was $ 50 visitors can play twice, the most productive day of income is 1,600 yuan, while the pump the cost of the nearest thousand dollars, the other there are other costs. ”
and this is the most profitable day, so doing business completely at a loss. “In addition there is equipment maintenance, water pipes, staff salaries,” the end they can only shut down, so that track “to recover from.” The rest is nearly 5 years.
end of the game, the venue who controls?
off busy all stakeholders, first-class stadium became the “unwanted child”
for the management and use of the site after the game, and the fact that he was deputy director of the Office of the Sun were to Correspondents tell the park’s effort and frustration. “We are very anxious, of course, stood in vain pity, but management costs too much, a small unit is how we can afford. The most important is the question of money.” Director Sun said, such as water needed for waterways “drifting on the water quality is relatively high, between the Xuanwu Lake and White Horse Lake has a pipeline to ensure that imported from the Xuanwu Lake and out of the water can be replaced, but now the pipes are closed. water are required to maintain a large sum of money . “
” This is the first Sports Bureau Nanjing Zhongshan Mausoleum Administration reached an agreement with the project, just place in our unit. Sports Bureau is the site of the competent authorities. “Director Sun a few years ago that they Sports Bureau reported just had maintenance problems, but did not get any reply.
subsequent correspondents to get in touch with the Nanjing Sports Bureau. Chak council office a very clear answer to reporters, “First of all, not a sports stadium where the venues; Secondly, after the National Games held in 2005, site maintenance, management and business are transferred to the Administration of Zhongshan Mausoleum including property rights. “So then, with the Sports Council has no authority or White Horse Park, Zhongshan Mausoleum communicated grounds maintenance related issues. Sports Authority has nothing to do with the site, that is not a park Director Sun referred to the competent authorities.
Zhongshan Mausoleum is the responsibility of managing the Authority’s rights and obligations? Twists and turns reporter linked to an ordinary council office staff Mr. Chen, he is responsible for the leadership is not introduced. “White Horse Park in our park, but a few years ago after the reform, the park is an independent legal entity, independent of the personnel, management rights,” Mr. Chen rafting site responsible for the management or the White Horse Park. But he also said, on site property rights also need accurate information to answer their leadership.
in conversation, Park Director Sun mentioned that track may be the Youth Olympic Games in 2014, club use. Reporters from the Ministry of Youth Olympic stadium that, White Horse Park, site of the canoe when applying for the Youth Olympic Games venues in the use of the list, but there may be changes specific. “If there canoe drifting project will use, but events by the International Olympic Committee and international sports organizations, consultation, and do not rule out the possibility of the project is not drifting,” the Office of the Youth Olympic stadium Yuen told reporters.
