It is provided with six functional blocks, including service management, media release, sports events management and boathouse as well as two water racetracks, including rowing and canoeing. Seventy gold medals of the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 and Hangzhou 2020 Asian Para Games will come from here.
According to the international standards and on the basis of meeting the needs of all kinds of international sports events, the design of venue adheres to the concept of being "Green, Smart, Frugal and Civilized" and follows the architectural style of green ecology, low carbon and harmony. The venue is perfectly combined with the surrounding buildings and landscapes, and the top is covered with soil to create a "sky garden” which is integrated with the natural landscapes. The venue provides citizens and tourists with a good place to enjoy the landscape of Fuyang, and give full play to the publicity and urbanity of venue.
