  • Its like a garden, you can just stolling around and enjoy the view . There is a pond in the garden . 
  • 運氣很好, 造訪的這幾天天氣晴朗, 來這裡散步很舒服, 路邊一整排的銀杏十分漂亮, 恰巧遇上了噴水池的噴水秀, 伴隨著音樂欣賞是很棒的! 
  • It is a big park there is a subway stop here and many places to eat if you walk a few streets away from the square.

  • 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.
  • Is a touristy área, and like all of them, it is busy. Must have seen once. But definetely better places to go to in Shanghai.
  • An amazing experience. So much to learn about the Chinese Culture and history. A must for all visiting this amazing city of Shanghai.
  • The good 1. Typical park at the heart of a city 2. lots of building views 3. place to escape the business of the city Cons 1. Tends to have lots of people 2. Lots of Grand Pa and Grand ma selling their child for marriage
  • 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.
