A proposal by the planning and land resources administration of Tianjin’s Binhua district to turn the site of two chemical explosions into a park are being derided online as netizens question local officials’ priorities, The Guardian reported. Concept art released on Friday showed a “harbor eco-park” featuring a lake at its center seemingly made out of the huge crater produced by the explosions.

The official death toll from the industrial accident stands at 161, of which 95 were firefighters.
