For some good traffic-free running, we recommend Changzhou Island and Bio-Island in the Luogang District. They’re also terrific for combining with our University City route.
Bio Island. Just east of university city, the relatively traffic-free Bio Island is pleasant for running. Several nice paths and greenways. The full perimeter is ~6 km. There’s also a park in the middle of the island. To combine with University City, take the bridge using Xiazhou Rd. over the river.
Changzhou Island. Located 3 km east of University City. It’s a popular spot for walking and bike rentals. Not too much traffic. Some pleasant roads, greenways, and riverside paths for running. Create your own route here. To get there from University City, use Jinzhou Rd.
