The paper takes design of the tenth China (Wuhan) International Garden EXPO as an example, concludes the development direction of low-carbon parks in China, and highlights the use of sponge city and green architecture design. Firstly, the paper introduces overview and design cases of the EXPO. Then, the paper elaborates the goals of low-carbon design. It describes the low-carbon technical application of the EXPO park, i.e. comprehensive design based on overall coordination and avoidance of conflicts, intelligent city planning, processing technology of existing landfill, conducting onsite balance work for earthwork, water recycling system planning, building ecological low-carbon architecture, building and repairing of ecological darning bridge, etc. Besides, the park also adopts design principle of sponge city. As an urban oasis, Wuhan International Garden EXPO darns the divided city; as a public space, it provides an ecological space for more citizens to visit and enjoy. Its example is a reference for design of low-carbon parks in China in the future.
