Chinese Amusement Park

World Landscape Park Entrance

This post is for John (who just had a baby this week – Congratulations!!). Somehow I think the link to this abandoned Chinese theme park would appeal to his sense of humor.

Once upon a time in a land called Xi Pu, just west of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province in the People’s Republic of China, there was a tourist theme park… The World Landscape Park. As a business venture it failed, and today the park lies abandoned and decaying. Personally, I think it’s a lot more interesting this way than it could ever possibly have been when it was open.
