New Guide to Wishing Star Park Brings Children and Families More Fun and Engaging Ways to Explore Nature in the Park
“Wishing Star Park Nature Book” educates guests about the magical habitat at Shanghai Disney Resort
Shanghai, October 20, 2017 – In the lead-up to the Third Shanghai International Nature Conservation Week starting October 21, the “Wishing Star Park Nature Book”, a self-guided nature-walk book featuring Shanghai Disney Resort’s magical natural environment, Wishing Star Park, was officially launched today. Published by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) China and supported by Shanghai Disney Resort, the book is designed to give families with young children a better understanding and knowledge of this natural habitat, and guide their exploration while immersing them in nature. The launch of the book was celebrated through a ceremony at Shanghai Disney Resort earlier today, joined by leadership from Shanghai Disney Resort and WWF China.
“As part of The Walt Disney Company’s strong commitment to encouraging children and families to enjoy nature together, we have been working with WWF China even before we welcomed our first guests last year to develop this guide to Wishing Star Park,” said Murray King, vice president of public affairs, Shanghai Disney Resort. “We designed and developed this beautiful wetland in Shanghai for families to enjoy and spend time together, and to inspire children and their families, cultivate their lifetime value of environment protection and encourage more efforts in protecting the earth we all share.”
Wishing Star Park, a 500,000-square-meter recreational area with restored wetlands along the central lake’s shoreline and more than 2.5 kilometers of pathways through open woodlands and shrublands along the lake’s edge, evokes the native landscape and historic legacy of the Yangtze River Delta. Located in Shanghai Disney Resort and adjacent to Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, Wishing Star Park creates a living ecosystem, providing a natural environment for plants, animals, fish and birds – more than 70 bird species have been monitored in the park.
