  • 带娃去逛逛,其实也一般般,就是地方比较大,还要买门票觉得挺无语,像长风公园也不用买门票的,像这种公园还是全开放比较好 
  • Very clean Park was perfect for walking. The umbrella is opened towards the end of the park there are plenty of people are sitting the konkatsu landscape was unique.

  • This is one of the few parks in Shanghai where there is an entrance fee. And with payment, the expectations are big.. and unfortunately, this park's biggest attraction is just that - it is big. Plenty...  more »

  • Century Park is a natural oasis on the western edge of "downtown" Shanghai Pudong. Similar in concept to Central Park in New York. As you would expect in Pudong, it's cris-crossed with canals and ponds. There are lots of interesting views and many miles of walking paths. Plenty of room for kids to roam about. You can even fish, for a fee. There are tandem bikes and electric boats for rent. There's an amphitheater that gets daily use by the middle aged dance groups, and lots of birds! I like to go early in the morning when it's still cool and the pollution isn't bad yet from the commuters. Also it creates a natural circuit to ride around, if you are intrepid enough to get on a bike in Shanghai! Plenty of restaurants, ranging from a full scale banquet place (on Huamu Lu) to little snack bars with drinks and ice cream bars (dotted all over the place). Easy subway access from the Century Park Station on the subway 2 line.
  • Cleanest, most beautiful and most up kept park to visit in Shanghai. Lots of space to roam around with kids (especially on a weekday!). You can hire a bike or covered bike trolley to take in more of the park at a time and there are also boat rentals on the lake. There's a small amusement park area for children. Bring your own lunch as they have a limited selection of foods at their little markets along the paths. And Westerners make note, we only found squatty potties (which aren't hard for adults but with kids it gets interesting). 10¥/person well spent!!!!
  • Laid back and relaxing
  • The biggest and best park in Shanghai. Around 2h of constant walking at least, a lot of great photo spots for your phone or professional equipment. Definitely worth going to a few hours before sunset and grabbing some of those stunning shots as well. So yeah - if you like parks - this is the place to go in Shanghai for sure. Metro station: Centry Park, Line 2. Exit 1.
  • Superb architecture
