There are many touristy places in major cities such as Shanghai, this is not one. I rated this 'excellent' in comparison and in contrast with the rest of one's experience while in Shanghai. While it is no where comparable to places such as Boston's Public Garden or NYC's Central Park or Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, it is totally a... More

Summary: Located in old Shanghai, this used to be a private park open only to French citizens during colonial times. Now a nicely kept public park complete with a small amusement park and impressive stone statues of Marx and Engels. Very nice escape for families with their kids.

There are so many people outside that are interacting with each other. It was really cool to see all the elderly people dancing and doing tai chi. There was even a public karaoke set up. Other then the people there is not too much to see so you do not need to spend too much time here.

This is a nice place to relax while watching activities happening around you. Older men gathering for tea and checkers, some tai chi, women in conversation and lots of strolling couples. Nice relaxing place.

This is a look into the Chinese people, especially the retired. Early in the morning groups doing tail chi, later groups ball room dancing and having sing alongside. Older people playing cards or Chinese chess. It's fun, pretty and simple.

This park, opposite Sinan Mansions in Fuxing Rd. has a little bit of everything with a formal garden, lawns, Chinese garden / rockery. It makes a nice escape from the city.

This is also a relaxing and eye catching park to walk and relax. It's very popular and well designed, not maybe as tranquil and peaceful as some other more traditional and greener parks, but worth to visit, especially if you are walking from Xintiandi to Frenxh Concession.

Go on a Sunny Sunday morning and you will see how public spaces should be used. It was busy. Lots of People dancing, tai chi, story telling to groups. Others are standing watching card playing or mahjong, or calligraphy - Essentially people doing their own thing individually or in groups without any sense of self consciousness.

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.
