    Very big park in the downtown area, it's a nice touch with a little more green space to take a breath (mask not inlcuded) from this incredibly busy city! A lot of differents activities to enjoy, from a simple walk, to jogging, to tai chi, to the weekend marriage market!

    Offer a nice break from the city. Tons of people still but the park is big, green, well kept, well designed and relatively clean. Have area where you can feed pigeons. Perfect for stroll after museum visit.

    A nice open space in the middle of Shanghai and a great meeting point. However if crowds aren't your thing you may be highly overwhelmed.
