located in the south of downtown Nanjing, it is only 1.2 kilometer from the Confucius Temple and 38 kilometers from the Lukou International Airport, and directly faces the Zhonghuamen Castle on the other side of the moat. Its predecessor, the Jinling Machinery Manufacture Bureau, was established by Li Hongzhang, the former governor-general of ancient Jiangsu, Anhui and Jiangxi Provinces, in 1865 during the Westernization Movement period, which then marked the initiation of China's modern industry and arms manufacture. Located in the central area of its predecessor's site, the Park is named therefor. With five functional areas respectively involving fashionable life relaxation, hi-tech creative R&D, arts & crafts creation, hotel & commerce (in the mountain top garden) and hi-tech creation exhibition, the Park has attracted dozens of corporations including Foxconn and Professor Wu Weishan's Studio, renting out more than 16,000 square meters of space.
