World class botanical gardens- with play areas for kids
Apr 2021 • Family
This is a really nice park. The botanical gardens are great to walk around in. There are a lot of different themed areas. And there are a couple nice places for children to play at. Worth checking out.

Gigantor Park

Take Line 9 to Dongjing Station. Buses are available to the park, FOC. Park is super huge. A good variety of flowers and trees there. Plenty of families put up their tents and picnic there. Plenty of room for all. Park is well maintained.

Something for everyone

We have visited these fantastic and gigantic gardens twice in the last month. Plenty for all the family. Perfect for a day out, bring a picnic and find your perfect spot to set up a base to explore the gardens. For kids the pirate ship and children's zoo area will keep them busy. It costs 60 rmb to enter.

Hidden gem of a place
Sep 2019
It’s a little bit in the middle of nowhere but well worth a visit. Lots of work still going on the develop the park. You can take a picnic and walk on the grass. There are all sorts of places to explore and things for kids to do. We did not see the whole park because it is huge

This place is marvellous at any time of the year. Chinese people love picnic: even in November we saw a lot of tents and blankets with hungry people eating on them. You can walk and lay on the grass, and there are also 2 children playgrounds, one of the, the pirates' ship wreck is gorgeous.
From Sheshan metro station bus 95 (5 stations), from the next metro station bus number 19 (7 stations), cca. 10 minutes ride, you can pay with metro card or cash, show the lady who collects the fee where do you want to go, the fee depends on the distance.
Perfect 1day trip from the center of shanghai.

Travel by Metro Line 9 to Sheshan station. And then, go to bus stop in front of the Metro. You can take bus No.... 67 around 5 stations. Tickets 60RMB (Normal, I'm not sure), 30RMB (Student card).
This bus app will support you to travel in Shanghai.

นั่งสาย9 ลง Sheshan แล้วก็ขึ้นบัสข้างหน้าสถานี เลข..(ภาษาจีนไรไม่รู้)..67 นั่งไป5ป้ายก็ลง แล้วเดินเข้าสวนเลย มีคนจีนไปเยอะ เดินตามคนจีนไปเลย มีโดมกระจก3โดม มีเขาให้ขึ้น มีสัตว์4ชนิด ราคา ถ้าใช้บัตรนักเรียน30หยวน เต็มราคาน่าจะ60หยวน พท.กว้างมากกกก หารองเท้าที่สะดวกต่อการเดินทาง ขากลับขึ้นได้ทั้ง (.....67) และ(....95)ไปลงหน้า Metro

Great park with few people inside!

Long subway ride for a tranquil walk in man-made nature. You have 3 greenhouses to visit, a petting zoo and walk in a cave. Enough to satisfy the curiosity of your children. The park doesn't have much to offer other than that. Bring some snacks!

Quiet time in beautiful, tranquil surroundings

Hired a car and driver from the hotel to undertake a day trip. Had we not gotten started early this would have been our only stop of the day. So much to see - just not possible in one day. Beautiful photo graphical opportunities and just to take the time to sit and breathe and relax.

Will definitely make a return visit when we come back to Shanghai.

Long Trip for a Just an OK Experience

If you are looking for something that makes you go YESSS, beautiful, then this is not the place. I don't like leaving mediocre reviews but here it goes. First, it's quite a distance out of Shanghai. Let me put things in perspective. 15-20 miles in an average US city isn't bad distance to travel , but that distance might takes hours to get to in Shanghai (traffic), be it by taxi or public transit. Then add the 100yuan cost and , well, meh.

The greenhouses are your best bet. You can climb the hill. I paid 10 yuan to ride the bus around the park. The driver suggested I get off and explore, and that the bus will pick me up again. I never saw the bus after that.

If you want a more beautiful park that is next to nothing to get into and is in town, see the Shanghai Botanical Gardens. And go during the week. In fact, do most of your sightseeing while in China during the week and outside of school breaks and you run a very large chance of being alone.

Don't get me wrong. There is beauty here but is it worth half your day in transport to get there? I wouldn't do it again.
