The park is quite huge and allows you to enjoy a bit of quietness in this busy city. You can bring your football or kite and your pick-nick

This park is clearly a place where locals hang out. There are all sorts of people there, including groups of men playing some sort of game on tables. I loved the shapes of the interesting rocks and the pebble paths.

I love this park. It's got tons of local people who come here to just do things. I've seen a group of 8-10 amateur saxophone player practicing together, a medley of other musical instruments just out there practicing, ballroom dancing classes, salsa dancing groups, karaoke, adult circle wrestling (two guys trying to pushing each other out of this circle permanently...

A look at normal every day people playing instruments, games, exercising or just enjoying the moment. It is set in the middle of what appears to be a cross of Chinese and French Architecture, old homes and outdoor cooking stations.

If you have time during your visit, stop by Fuxing Park for at least half an hour. You will get a good taste of local life of all ages and backgrounds. Middle-aged ladies dancing/exercising in rows, old couples ballroom dancing, tai chi, people practicing their violins and trombones, kids flying kites, family picnics, goldfish watching in the pond, rowdy mahjong...

After a long walk around the busy street f Shanghai, it was nice to find that garden/park and sit on a bench watching the world goes by. There is people dancing, singing or just talking everywhere but it is nice.

This is a really nice place to chill out and rest your feet. The grounds are immaculate and the area was not at all crowded when I was there.

It was raining when I visited but it was still worth walking around. There is a waterfall and some beautiful little ponds.

Lovely park close to shopping areas- peaceful break for a picnic or walk. Impromptu dancing was a great surprise and worth a visit to watch for a while

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.
