Derelict amusement park in Sichuan, China

M Otis Beard sent us this site he built documenting his trip to The World Landscape Park near the capital of Sichuan in China. The World Landscape Park — or as he calls it, Disgraceland, PRC — is a failed amusement park that sits rotting on an unremarkable street-corner, filled with architectural marvels, concrete trees, a giant crucifix, and many other amusements.

Once upon a time in a land called Xi Pu, just west of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province in the People's Republic of China, there was a tourist theme park… The World Landscape Park. As a business venture it failed, and today the park lies abandoned and decaying. Personally, I think it's a lot more interesting this way than it could ever possibly have been when it was open.


(Thanks, Otis!)
