Deputy Director of Hanoi’s Project Management Board of Socio-cultural Works Pham Dinh Tuan said that the new Children's Palace is built in a modern style, which is open and close to nature, providing kids a safe, comfortable place for study activities and entertainment.
Hanoi Vice Chairman Chu Xuan Dung said that the new Children's Palace is one of the key projects in Hanoi’s socio-economic development plan for the 2020-2025 period.
"The new Children's Palace will be the center of cultural, sports, and major political events of the youth and children in particular and of Hanoi in general,” Dung said.
Approved in 2014, the palace is designed to become a centre for culture and sports activities and political events of the city and the country as a whole.
This will be the second children’s palace in Hanoi. The first is located in the city centre near Ly Thai To Statue and Hoan Kiem Lake and is often overcrowded, especially during summer.
It is expected that Hanoi authorities in June will approve and issue the Red River subdivision planning, which will help the capital city become more spacious and modern.
