Lovely Park
May 2019 • Friends
This park is very nice. It has a calm, serene feel, especially when it is not very crowded. In recommended coming here and spending time walking around all the various gardens. There are many flowers and trees. It is a nice feast for the eyes.

Hidden Gem of Shanghai
Apr 2018 • Friends
If you wish to see an example of a classic Suzhou style Chinese Garden in Shanghai and wish to avoid the crowd, there are five choices. I wrote about one of them a few years ago, the Guyi Garden. On a recent visit, I went to another one that I think is a better choice, the Zuibaichi Garden Park, in the Songjiang District of Shanghai City. It is just steps from a metro station, the second to the last stop of Line 9. It is a one hour ride from downtown Shanghai. The park is tranquil and perfectly laid out for strolling. It is well described in Panda Guides as, "It perfectly illustrates the purpose of winding paths and dense trees in Chinese gardens, which is to create a steady flow of small discoveries and intimate spaces. Walking aimlessly along the stone paths of Zuibaichi, you may encounter a shaded tea room with a shrine in the back, or pass through a gate in a wall to suddenly find yourself in a garden of bonsai trees. Further on, a collection of small furnished rooms are artfully placed around lily ponds and bridged channels, and a walled enclosure yields a fountain in a pool or a subtle arrangement of sculpted rocks and foliage. The park also seems to be a favorite of the retired, so surprises may include happening upon an ongoing game of cards in one of the pavilions or a grandpa frozen awkwardly into one of the stances of his tai chi routine.

Wonderful ancient park
Jun 2017 • Couples
A wonderful park with lots of old houses, small courtyards with gardens and ponds. Similar but larger than the ones in Suzhou, and easily accessible (about 1 h from downtown Shanghai with metro line 9 to Zuibaichi stop, exit 3, with entrance straight ahead). A nice and quiet break from the hustle and bustle to walk around in the maze. Entrance fee 12 RMB. Opening hours 8 am to 5 pm.

Fantastic and peacefull

Living in Shanghai i discovered this garden after 1.5 years !! It is clearly far away but double worth the visit : it is magnificent while being far makes it less attractive and consequently NOT full of hordes of touriste. If you come early (9h00) you can even see old chinese people practicing taichi on the north part.

Wonderful quiet environment

This initially private garden is a wonderful quiet and peaceful environment in Songjiang. It invites for a comfortable Spring walk offering beautiful flowers, trees and a great scenery. Definitely a pretty unknown gem in Shanghai to be explored ...

Lovely Chinese garden
Feb 2016 • Friends
My friend and I visited during the third day of Chinese new year and so it was rather quiet for a Chinese garden. The day was springlike and the skies were blue so we got the best the garden could offer despite its being in the middle of winter.

New year decorations abounded and there were singers and flutists. Really, the experience was very nice. Got some great pictures.

The park is just a few steps out of exit 3, Zuibaichi metro station. Only a few blocks away from the Songjiang mosque and Xilin temple. Do the three of them together for a really nice Chinese experience.

A nice and quiet park

Swing by if you're in the area, otherwise nothing spectacular to mention. It's clean and quiet, with some pleasant views.

Classical Chinese Garden Architecture
Feb 2015 • Couples
Having spent the last 10 months in this part of China, I have probably seen enough Chinese gardens to last me a lifetime. Nonetheless, this is a very nice one, and anyone passing through the old trading town of Songjiang could do much worse than stop off her and admire the classical landscape design.

The garden is situated right beside Zuibaichi Park station, which is the second last stop on Line 9 of the Shanghai Metro. It would be entirely feasible for Shangahi expats or tourists to just hop on the metro and come out here for half a day's poking around the historic sights. You will find it a much more restful experience than downtown Shanghai.

This particular garden dates back to at least the 16th century and it boasts the usual ponds, pavilions, stone bridges and ancient camphor trees that you expect from a Chinese garden south of the Yangtze River. There are also some oddities such as a fossilized rock full of ancient mussels and a modern bonsai garden, though the Chinese would argue that 'penjing' is a local artform and these dwarf trees aren't bonsai.

For 12 yuan, it is reasonably priced. It can easily be combined with the nearby Xilin Temple and Songjiang Mosque for a satisfying half day's sight-seeing.
