However, in recent years, the “lungs” of the capital are getting worse and worse. According to financial reports from 2015-2020, the park’s revenue has halved, from more than 60 billion VND in 2015 to 33 billion VND. 2020. Before COVID-19, the revenue of Thong Nhat Park was also flat for many years, approximately below 50 billion. Accordingly, the park’s profit after tax also decreased by nearly 63%, to VND 491 million.
The revenue of Thong Nhat Park comes from maintenance revenue and business revenue. In which, the source of maintenance revenue from the budget always accounts for a large proportion.

However, in the past 5 years, this is a category of revenue that has dropped sharply. Business revenue, which comes from cultural activities, entertainment tickets, dining, and venue rental, shows signs of increasing and accounts for a gradually higher proportion in the 2016-2019 period, but is still not enough to bring the total revenue. back to 2015 levels.
The two years 2018 – 2019 recorded a bright spot in Thong Nhat Park’s business activities. In 2018, business revenue reached VND 19 billion, up 25% compared to the previous year. In 2019, the park earned 18 billion VND from this activity, keeping the consolidated revenue at 43.9 VND, approximately the same as 2017, although 2019 received less budget. However, the outbreak of COVID-19 caused this revenue to plummet to 11 billion dong in 2020, the lowest level in 5 years. According to the report for the first 6 months of 2021, the park recorded VND 17 billion in net revenue, slightly down year-on-year with a net profit of 178 million.

Besides, the park’s lawns and gardens are also degraded due to lack of care. “I have seen the lush green gardens in some parks around the world, compared to that, Thong Nhat is extremely tragic. Many trees wither and wither as if being ‘forced’” – said Ms. Kieu Anh, who came to the park.
According to Vice Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Duong Duc Tuan, in the period of 2021 – 2025, Thong Nhat Park is one of three parks that have been renovated at level 1.
