Shanghai citizens will be able to see polar bears, penguins and white whales at an ocean park soon that is scheduled to open in Pudong before August 22 next year.

A one-year countdown ceremony was held on Tuesday when the park — Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean World — signed an agreement with Lingang New City in Pudong.

Covering 450 mu, or 300,000 square meters, the park will have six large exhibition venues, two cinemas and four sites for visitors to watch animal performances or interact with the animals.

Some other entertainment facilities are also being built near the ocean park, such as an ice world and a planetarium.

The ice world claims it will have the largest indoor ski slope in the world. Visitors can even ski to the slope directly from their hotel rooms after it is opened in 2019.

The Shanghai Planetarium, also said to be the largest of its kind in the world, is scheduled to open in 2020.
