Huangpu Park, Shanghai
(4/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Huangpu Park is the name of the triangular stretch of green at the northern end of the Bund in Shanghai, the oldest and smallest park of the city. It is the site of the large Monument to the People's Heroes, commemorating those who helped to free China from foreign occupation, and of the Bund Historical Museum, which documents the history of the Bund in old photographs.Name and historyThe first park at the location was established in 1886 with the simple name "Public Garden", and was the first park in China open to the public. Designed by a Scottish gardener in European style, it included a resting pavilion and a tennis court, aiming at the increasing number of foreigners living in Shanghai since the city had become an international trade port in the 1840s.The Public Garden was closed to Chinese people between 1890 and 1928 and, according to a popular myth, a sign at the park's gate read No dogs or Chinese allowed. However, period photographs show a sign listing ten regulations, the first of which was "The Gardens are reserved for the Foreign Community", with the fourth being "Dogs and bicycles are not admitted". In any case, the banning of Chinese from Huangpu Park and other parks in China has remained in Chinese public mind as one of the many examples of the country's humiliation by the Western powers in the 19th and early 20th century. For instance, the legend is manifested in the Bruce Lee film Fist of Fury, where a scene taking place at Huangpu Park gate features a (fictitious) "No dogs and Chinese allowed" sign.After World War II, Public Garden was renamed "Huangpu Park". Confined by Suzhou Creek to the north and Huangpu River to the east, the park bears the name of the latter, larger river.

  • 黄埔公园真的很小很小,但是人家毕竟在外滩边上,周边还有配套餐饮美食,夜景人群,晚上去黄浦江边吹吹风逛逛还是不错的 
  • It had quite a lot of people and we were there through the day. In the evening, it should be super with the lights. I haven't seen but unfortunately. But also during the day, the skyline looks very impress out. Restaurant was unfortunately seldom one on the promenade. You had to down the road, because it had a larger selection; from Starbucks of to local restaurants. Bottom line: If you have time, be sure look going.

  • Park with great view.

  • 外白渡橋南的黃浦公園是上海最早建立的公園。濱臨黃浦江及蘇州河,搭配外灘建築群構成雄偉秀麗的風情。當年專供外國人遊覽,掛有「華人與狗禁止入內」。上海人民英雄紀念碑立於此。
