Donghai Greenway in Dinghai district, Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province, has been popular among local residents since its Dongshan Mountain section was opened to the public last year.
The greenway originated from the roads left behind by the water conservancy project on five mountains – Dongshan Mountain, Changgang Mountain, Leigu Mountain, Haishan Mountain, and Zhushan Mountain – in Dinghai.

"Donghai Greenway is not just a scenic greenway, but also a window to show Dinghai's profound culture and advanced technologies," said a local official.
Spanning 25 kilometers, the Donghai Greenway features sightseeing platforms and bird island exhibition halls and connects numerous natural attractions.
On the first day of this year's May Day holiday, the Zhushan Mountain section of Donghai Greenway welcomed about 45,000 tourists.
The section features war relics from battles of the Opium War in Zhoushan. Its landscape, sculpture, and public facilities reflect the district's coast defence culture and major historical events.
