A great way to chill out on a sunny afternoon in Shanghai. Don't be put off by the rather uninspiring walk from Shilong Road subway station (four stops inc one change from Xujiahui). Go over the bridge from the station and head to the end...More

Such a refreshing corner of nature in Shanghai! Beautiful spring flower blooming and fall foliage. Get lost through the hills and hide away from the crowds. They also have a nice restaurant, and a playground for kids. Go early on weekends! No need to visit...More

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.

For a day trip or picnic with the family, it's an okay place to go. The 3 greenhouses cost about 30 rmb/person, kids free, and to get in to park at arrival, it's another 10 rmb. What you CAN do is go early, and go...More

You would think that a botanical garden would be elegant, grand, and serene - this place certainly is not. Costs 15 yuan to enter but special exhibitions within the "garden" will cost you extra. Perhaps it may have been the wrong time of the year...More

This park is very close to hustle and bustle of the Puxi side of Shanghai. Do not get your self confused with the Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Gardens off line 9 and WAY out of town. This park was developed in the 1970s and except for...More

A rather expansive garden in Shanghai. Almost too big because the attention to detail and maintenance seems a bit thin. Also on my visit there was too much trash in the streams, around rocks, etc. It's nice and there are many plants to admire however...More

Modern time garden building (as opposed to historical gardens) in Chinese cities is in its infancy, in time line lock step with the huge expansion in infrastructure and commercial/residential building programs.
