Dancing, badminton, kite flying, running. playing musical instruments, signing in a choir, lying in the shade, diablo, pram-pushing, bit more dancing and then a bit more dancing. This is the best park to go to in Shanghai to see Chinese at rest. Lots of foreigners like to take videos of the people who are dancing in the park and they... More

This place seems from the outside as an old folks park for Tai Qi. Its more than that. It has kids amusement park rides. They are about 10-20 RMB per ride, there are about 5 of them so it wont take you all day. I suggest any sunny weekend day to take young kids from 3-6 there, go on the... More

Enjoyed seeing all the happy people (many seniors) dancing, playing Diabolo, water painting on the sidewalks, exercising and having fun.

The urban park features a large statue of Marx and Engels, two of the greatest figures in modern history. It is wonderful to see them honoured half way around the world. The park is also a lively place with people enjoying themselves doing all kinds of leisure activities, singing, dancing, even crazy Europeans doing laughing yoga.

Fuxing Park was a special visit for me. My grandmother's last photograph in China before moving to the United States in 1948 was in Fuxing Park. Nothing has changed. I located the exact spot where she was photographed. It was like traveling back in time in Shanghai's French Concession, forgetting about the new highway that was once a grand avenue... More

Though I am not a big fan of parks, this one is more special coz of the history associated with it. The park was built in 1909 by French, then it was under Japanese and was called Daxing Park, and finally under the Chinese and got called Fuxing Park. It's at walkable distance from Xintiandi Subway station Exit 5. You... More

If you visit Shanghai don't miss out Fuxing park. The absolute joy is infectious. Whilst always busy no-one is concerned and everyone is tolerant. Dancers,singers children playing all mane of activities.

A very quiet park, well kept. Retired people reading papers. A way to absorb the daily life of the Chinese, far from tourists.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
