  • Too crowded and dirty, not worth 15RMB , Better go to Century Park which only cost 10RMB . They only give more focus on the entrance part of the park, the other part dont have good maintenance.  more »

  • I'm me ask about senior citizen friends. It seems from a whopping 80-year-old. I'm tagging with the trees naturally could not read. When you look at the scientific name it works the best. Also in the Park serving as a souvenir shop. This is a good place to wander around.

  • Awesome during summer. Great place for photos and to hang out. Recommended to visit during work days when there are less people around. However, if you are far don't come here only to visit this place.
  • Very crowded and poorly maintained. They have a nice Bonsai collection but definitely not worth the trip down. There are much better parks in Shanghai
  • Badly maintained, falls in ruin slowly. On the bright side, very little people walking there, so if you look for place to rest, that's the one.
  • Beautiful place and extremely large. Conservation rooms are great. Don't go in winter.
  • Lovely
