Architectural history

In December 2005, the Beijing Olympic Water Park began the construction of large-scale earthwork excavation of the track, Hill piling in dynamic water area, main stand and functional room.

In March 2006, 1.1 million cubic meters (55% of the total earthwork) were excavated in the still water area of Beijing Olympic Water Park.

In June 2006, the track excavation was basically completed.

In September 2006, the steel structure of the main stand of Beijing Olympic Water Park has been completed. At the same time, the track has been excavated. The main bridges and supporting functional houses have been completed, and the water storage conditions have been met.

In January 2007, the construction of Beijing Olympic Water Park has been completed, and the water storage has reached 50% of the competition level greening project.

In May 2007, Beijing Olympic Water Park entered the final stage of the project.

On July 28, 2007, the acceptance and delivery ceremony was held in Beijing Olympic Water Park, which became one of the first new venues in Beijing delivered by the Beijing Olympic Games.


The scenery of the games and the idleness after the games are the true portrayal of many Olympic venues. In order to avoid such a situation repeating, Beijing Olympic Water Park as early as the beginning of the design, the use of the post-competition as one of the conditions for assessment. After the Olympic Games, it will become the largest tourism and leisure resort base in the northeast of Beijing, and also the driving force for the development of Shunyi New Town.

In order to solve the problem of utilizing venues after the games, early in the design, designers went to Sydney and Atlanta, which had hosted the Olympic Games. According to international practice, it is easy to make profits after the race. Sydney's hydrodynamic race venue is operated by a company through bidding, and the corresponding fees are paid to the government every year, while the hydrostatic race venue for rowing is usually invested by the local government as a public project. According to the characteristics of dynamic water being profitable and less people in still water, Beijing Olympic Water Park has formulated a policy of combining dynamic water with static water to drive the use of static water after the competition, so that tourists can also participate in some static water projects while playing in the dynamic water area. This idea has contributed to the unique design of the Beijing Olympic Water Park.

Logo culture

The symbols of Beijing Olympic Water Park are drawn with Chinese traditional brush lines, reflecting a strong Chinese cultural heritage. The five colors of the Olympic rings symbolize the perfect combination of ancient oriental civilization and modern Olympic spirit. The logo image is a variant of the rower. It not only has the image characteristics of the rower who rows back to the end, but also has the image characteristics of the canoeist who rows with both hands holding the oars. The blue-green water pattern in the middle highlights the characteristics of the water events. "SHUNYI 2008" also uses sports fonts, highlighting the site and time of the project. The whole composition is dynamic and has a strong sense of motion.

In the composition, the red stripe is a variant of the Chinese phonetic initials "S" of the word "Shun". The yellow stripe and the red stripe constitute the variant of the Chinese phonetic initials "Y" of the word "Yi". At the same time, the three colors of black, red and yellow constitute the Chinese character "Yi". The blue and green stripes below symbolize that Beijing Olympic Water Park and Chaobai River Forest Park are adjacent to each other and set off against each other, forming a new urban background of Shunyi, which is based on rivers, soul of water and rhyme of forests. The progressive and upward water stripes and the character composition of SHUNYI 2008 symbolize the opportunity of Shunyi people to seize the Olympic Games and build a harmonious socialist society and "concentric". On the road of building a well-off society in an all-round way and building a green international port, we should carry forward the spirit of "concentric and upward, scientific innovation, down-to-earth, and pursuit of excellence", and constantly develop and advance and uplift our spiritual outlook.
