Established in the eponymous style by the French in the early 1900s this is a tranquil enclave in the midst of traffic heavy city streets. It was busy with locals and visitors enjoying the peacefulness. Walking along the tree canopied paths was lovely and relaxing. We saw pleasant sights like the water features and flower beds, particularly the mattress flowerbed... More

Fuxing Park is a lovely spot to escape from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai for a pleasant stroll. Nice spot for a sunset walk.

This park is located south of the People's square and it is popular among residents who can leisurely stroll, play card, do jogging. Music is often live played. A nice place to enjoy seeing locals relaxed from the hectic life of Shanghai.

Adapted from a post on my blog “Shanghai virtually painted by Tan Choon Hong”. Fuxing Park is one of several scattered around Shanghai providing respite in this throbbing metropolis. Built by the French during the colonial era, it has the usual Parisian features like sycamore-lined walkways, placid ponds and colourful flower beds, augmented by typical Chinese garden features like rockeries...

Getting into the park itself is an adventure. There aren't too many gates in, and you have to walk through old Shanghai lanes to gain entry. Once inside, it's still mainly locals, doing various forms of taiji and exercise. Check it out!

This park is nice to visit for a break from the Shanghai madness. The lake and gardens are well maintained. You will see locals dancing and practicing meditation and tai chi which is interesting to watch. The locals also gather to play cards and catch up with friends.

I enjoyed sitting on a bench and watching people go by. A cat visited me too, The rose garden is very pretty.

A shabbier version of the Tuileries Garden, this urban oasis is a great place to see local folks at play. Lots of families. Even some couples doing their Viennese waltzes in the bandstand. Its' all around charming.

You can find everything here: Singers, dancers, Tai Chi practitioners, masseurs, children fishing real fish, and nice meadows to lay on, to play badminton or to fly a kite

We woke up early on a Sunday morning to visit the park. The park is close to the subway Huangpi stop. We ran a short 3 miles around the park and enjoyed watching the locals practice tai chi, fly kites, dance, sing and play music. It was an incredible experience. A must do to experience Shang Hai.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
