About
A modern-style memorial park integrating features of a memorial, tourist and cultural site, and garden architecture, the Longhua Memorial Park of Revolutionary Martyrs, with its name inscribed by Deng Xiaoping, has long been likened to the Yuhuatai Martyrs Memorial Park in Nanjing, another historically significant martyrs cemetery in China. Built on the former site of Kuomintang Wusong-Shanghai Garrison Command and where the Longhua revolutionary martyrs were executed, it was designated as a revolutionary martyrs memorial site under national protection following the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

This park is very educational. Love the park itself, the museum, cemetery and old prison. When we were there, we managed to catch a glimpse of soldiers marching and visitors bowing in honor of the heroes. This was done in front of the glass pyramid where wreaths were placed. Love the museum as there are English descriptions for everything. Take Line 11 to Longhua metro station to visit the park AND temple. They are next to each other. Very convenient.

Can easily spend a couple of hours here walking through a very large sprawling park with not only many green areas but some fascinating sculptures, memorials and fountains distributed throughout. A really nice historical museum in the center that is interesting to view from outside as well as inside. Many excellent paintings, carvings and images on display inside. Some interesting artifacts as well to explain some of the history. English translations for some cause a reaction (almost humorous) inconsistent with the kind of somber atmosphere one senses here in the midst of telling the stories of the martyrs they are memorializing. (E.G. One display case contains a wristwatch with a lengthy description captured in about 40 Chinese characters but the English translation is simpler and clarifies exactly what you are seeing. It says "Watch". Another shows an open, wooden box with an English description of "Toolbox".) But for a free museum, that is really interesting to see, it's definitely worth checking out.

There are also some buildings which made up the Detention House or Longhua Prison that you can walk through. Pretty stark and barren and you can almost feel like a prisoner walking through the dark halls. Further afield is an underground passage to another area known as the Killing Grounds where 24 inmates were martyred. Eerie also but interesting for the history buff to explore.

I have been there twice, both times with very few people around. In fact, the first visit was during Chinese Spring Festival (Jan 2012) and whereas there were throngs of people just the other side of the park fence at the Longhua Temple, there was almost nobody walking through this large park. It was quite a contrast.

I will probably return for a third visit soon.

I came across this very large park quite by accident after I'd visited the more well-known temple and monastery next door. It's very easy to find and well worth finding, but isn't given a mention in any guide book I've ever seen. There's a museum in the centre of the large park designed as a glass pyramid. All around the perfectly manicured gardens are interesting monuments. It's all quite modern, but very relaxing and peaceful, with hardly anyone around at all. Plus, it's completely free.

Most people won't come here even though it's right next to the Longhua temple. It's a park with memorials and sculptures meant to honor those who were executed for being communists. It's a large park with sculptures scattered around. There is a well curated museum in the center where you can learn more of the history.

The park is great for relaxing and running. The park is very huge and full of green views. The museum is awesome and you can see the whole revolutionary and army history of China. Entrance is for free.

I went on a scorching day in July and nearly melted away, but it was still worth it. The sculptures are very interesting and reminds you that the CCP still rules China, something easy to forget in ultramodern, capitalist Shanghai. It's a short walk from Longhua station. Wear sunscreen and bring a bottle of water.

The memorials are laid out in a very pretty setting on a monumental scale. It's very close to the metro and to the Longhua temple. There is an interesting prison on the site which can be visited. It tells an interesting history of communism.

Located to the west of Longhua Temple, a Really well Keep Tribute to the Chinese Martyrs. Advice would be walk staight to the central pyramid (museum) open 9am-3.30pm, Tues-Sun, 5RMB entry. can take a quick walk around the building to see iconic statues (the rest of the Park is just garden areas which locals use as chill out spots)

This is a memorial park that is well kept and decent. there is a museum for the martyrs in the center with some other features. it isn't too far from xujiahui, so visiting can be convenient. the longhua temple is also close by, so it merits a visit.

This park has historical and memorial legitimacy and is obviously a place held in deep reverence by the citizens of Shanghai. To me, a mere tourist it immediately prompted comparisons with "our own" places of cultural and memorial significance and on those bases this park measures up very well, despite having no personal connection with the events that are memorialised here. PLUS no in site commercial activity which made the visit so much more peaceful and relaxing than other big city parks in China.
