The park was originally the Shougang steel mill, also known as Capital Steel, and was open from 1919 until 2010. It is now being redeveloped. 

Shougang Group will collaborate with the General Administration of Sport in order to turn the park into a leading example for the Chinese sports industry.

The park is already the home of the Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee. It will also become a training venue for several sports and will be open to the public in the future.

Shougang’s official website reveals that the reconstruction of the office area for the Organizing Committee of the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, as well as the training venues for speed skating and ice hockey, will be fully completed in 2017.

Meanwhile, the construction of the large hill for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games will also begin soon.

The website explains that “the Park will be a model of developing Olympic sports in cities, reusing world heritage sites and revitalizing industrial parks”.
