I have always wanted to visit this park and finally did so. It is a hidden gem in Xuhui District. It is only 2 rmb or cny to get into the park. It is beautiful with many varieties of plants and trees. I walked around and felt soothed being around nature. At the time I was there were not a lot of people around. I did find that there are many cats there. They are very cute (if you like cats) and calming to look at. It is not far from Guilin Park metro station. If you need a short respite from the city life, this place is very nice to visit.

A lovely old-style Chinese garden removed from the crowds of tourists in central Shanghai. Beautiful rockery, water features, flowers, grasses, tea houses. But the osmanthus trees and the songbirds are the real attractions. "Guilin" means "Osmanthus wood." The park has several species and over a hundred trees. When they flower in October (warm, sunny in Shanghai) the fragrance is overwhelming. Go then, if you can. Entrance 4RMB. From 6:30-9:00 every morning, admission is free to senior citizens. On a sunny day, in the courtyard in front of the teahouse, for the price of a cup of tea, old men sit chatting with their cages of songbirds. The clamor of their warbling melodies in this outdoor aviary drowns out human chatter and traffic noise. Mixed with the fragrance of the osmanthus, it is unforgettable. Diagonally across from the line 12 subway station of Guilin Lu, Exit 4. Recommended for open-minded travelers curious about real Chinese life.

Just a wonderful place to walk about and take your time! Guessing about 60 minutes needed if on a time crunch but I do suggest to take it in. Go find the zig zag bridge built on purpose to chase evil demons. 2RMB as a foreigner to enter

Easy to get to line 12 Guilin park station. just across the road at the junction. Lots of different views around every corner. Lots of shady spots to rest and relax. There is a tea room.We were watching a group of photographers taking picture of possibly their wives in national costumes. We stopped to also take photos and were welcomed by them all. We even ended up having our photos taken with them they were so pleased.I think two white haired westerners were as much a good photo as the costumes were to us. It is a great place to make time to visit even take a picnic.

Although a little way from city centre, this park is a fantastic example of chinese garden architecture. Every path / election / nook and cranny has been thought through and has a purpose. Every angle shows a different face meaning you can wonder and enjoy a new discovery at every turn.
