This is a pleasant park and a good place to go on the weekend to see how local families come out to play. It was a memorable walk and I saw a singer with someone playing a traditional stringed instrument.

This park has great sculptures and is quite relaxing place to visit. The only drawback are the con-artists hanging around. Be alert. Loads of families, and card players enjoying the outdoors.

Fuxing Park is definitely not the type of city park one goes to 'get away from it all', get back to nature. On the other hand, it's full of colorful locals (and I'm a localized expat), so fascinating place to observe another culture at play. Whether it's ballroom dancing in high heels, as a bit of rain starts to sprinkle... More

Get to Fuxing Park early (by 8 am), and take in the Chinese doing Tai Chi, dancing, and practicing all sorts of different hobbies, including card playing, tea drinking, and smoking. This was one of the best morning we spent during our time in Shanghai. The park is very beautiful, but the glimpse into local life shouldn't be missed.

Nice place to go and see locals doing their activities. It is also a good place to sit and eat something outdoors or even have a beer. Then walk around in the Old French Concession.

This is a much more local park, with lots of locals exercising, playing with their children and the elderly practising their ballroom dancing. There are also groups of elderly men playing card games or Chinese chess, while chain smoking. It is quite a fun and interesting park to just sit and watch the locals pass their time.

We had an 8 hour walking tour with Lisa that started at this park. Lisa's English is excellent but what makes her exceptional is her interaction with the locals and her tourists. She had us singing with local groups, a gentleman wrote our names in calligraphy on the sidewalk and playing mariches with a group in the park. The Chinese... More

Went for a stroll through this park on a sunny Saturday. The landscaping is very nice with a variety of garden types. Taking an hour detour from my intended path, I was able to soak in a number of cultural experiences for free: dancing, singing, live music, and water writing among others. It's a worthwhile stop.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood 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.
