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.

You can use metro line 11 or 12. I used line 11 and got off at Longhua station. It is a small walking distance. Situated next to the Longhua Temple. This memorial park captures the traumatic and haunting history of those who laid down their lives fighting and defending their city. These are sacred and serene grounds. There is a small graveyard, with loved ones visiting and bringing flowers. There is a glass pyramid museum at the center of the park. You need a passport to go in. I could not go inside. The sculptors are hauntingly beautiful. Even in the gloomy history there is still hope and victory. It is a complex paradox, calming sadness that envelopes you as you walk these grounds knowing the history... The grounds are well maintained with seasonal shrubs, trees and flowers. This is a prime space for elders who love walking, stretching and doing tai chi. A relaxing walk through a cool bamboo forest. Water feature sounds trinkle to complement the stillness of the beauty that surrounds you. Captivating sculptures depicting the war and fight for freedom. I could not take pictures of the the sculpture of a fallen man. His body half burried and the other half with a hand reaching to sky. The execution house stands timeless, old, barren and fading against the trees at the end of the walk from gate 1 (or it could be the first thing you see if you use a different entrance). All the sculptures signify a need for freedom - an anchor holding you down, heavy, stuck, yet sparrows taking flight seeking freedom and chains breaking. The full frame looks like a beautiful sunflower.

The other half always takes an interest in memorial parks so we headed out to this lovely site and spent half an hour wandering around. Some beautiful sculptures are present and it’s free so if you have time to kill this is a nice change of pace

located beside Longhua Temple and accessible from Metro line 11 or 12, a beautiful park with quiet places to sit and enjoy the view, or wonder through exploring and discovering stunning pathways, entrance is free and definitely worth a visit.
