Abstract

Meishan culture is one of the three ancestral Chinese cultures (the other two are the Zhongyuan and Jingchu cultures) and an important part of Huxiang history in central south China. To reproduce, preserve, and further develop a traditional Meishan culture, Meishan Cultural Park was constructed by the local residents. This paper discussed the design and construction of this cultural park in the context of cultural translation. Through cultural translations between local and ancient cultures and external and modern knowledge, a functionally modern tourism park, which reflects the traditional Meishan culture, was successfully built.
