Citizens' satisfaction with urban management has significantly improved. Therefore, Ningbo has become cleaner, more beautiful and more orderly.
Now, from Tianyi Square, Zhongshan Road and the Old Bund, to the Moonlake Park, the Cultural Plaza and Nantang Old Street, the effectiveness of the urban improvement actions over the past years and the improvement of the citizens' civilized quality can be seen everywhere. More and more public activity spaces are becoming the popular places for citizens to enjoy the beautiful life by just sitting down on the ground.
