Great park. Great location for Lu Xun’s resting place. It is located at a quiet corner. The park however is pretty happening. People go there to dance and play badminton and even organized musical groups together.

Nice Chinese park not so well known -

A local friend of mine took me to this local Chinese Park. It hosts 'The World Literary Giant Square' with many status of world re-known poets and writers. Take a look. It's worth it!

I found the English language translations of the exhibit labels very useful. I read no Chinese and was unfamiliar with this famous 20th century author but got a lot out of my visit.
I also enjoyed watching the retired Chinese taking dance lessons en mass as morning exercise in the park and seeing the grandparents bringing little children to the amusement rides. It was hard to tell who was more excited, the kids or the proud grandparents.

Beautiful Park and Memorial
Aug 2017 • Solo
Lu Xun Park has been developed since I was last there. It is very beautifully laid out and is very popular with local people especially the elderly.

It houses both the museum and the grave of the hero of Chinese literature. He inspired me to read his works years ago - if you chose to do so, there are lots of online commentaries available to enhance understanding.

As for the gardens - so nice a place to stroll. There is the museum also. A great tribute.

A typical Chinese Park
Apr 2017 • Solo
If you do hava a connection to Lu Xun, also visit the adjacent museum. At the Memorial, look for the cigarettes that might be burning alongside the statue. Lu Xun was an avid smoker and people still keep him supplied. The park itself is an attraction. When I visited on a saturday afternoon, I was literally the only Westerner there. And I have to admit that I like how Chinese people live in parks: Singing, dancing, playing cards, musical instruments etc. Very relaxed atmosphere, very friendly.

Free and interesting Lu Xun Museum
May 2016 • Solo
Lu Xun (鲁迅) was a fascinating character. He studied medicine in Japan, but decided to become a novelist to change China.

This free museum was located in, you guessed it, the Lu Xun Park (鲁迅公园). It has various exhibit areas, depicting his life and his works.

In addition, there are some large art pieces and quite a few woodblock prints exhibited as well.

The Lu Xun Park is located in the Hongkou (虹口) area of Shanghai. It's not a touristy area, so walking around this park as well as the neighborhood allowed me to see the life of the local people.

You can reach the Lu Xun Park from 3-4 different Shanghai Metro stations.

Visit park only if....in Shanghai
Oct 2015 • Solo
If you are a great fan of the Chinese writer Lu Xun, then perhaps a visit to this memorial in Lu Xun Park is advisable. Otherwise, it is really the Lu Xun Park, in which the memorial and statue of him are found that it is interest or it is to be avoided. It is packed with people, perhaps all of the time. Anthropologically it may be of certain interest to see how urban space and parks in Chinese are used by the masses: dancing, card playing, music, children playing around. But, in China there are masses and the park was really packed and loud, overcrowded when I visited. There is a section in the park devoted to great writers, including Dickens, Shakespeare, Balzac, Pushkin, etc. It is interesting, but not worth a visit really. If you are looking for a peaceful break from the hectic pace and crowds of Shanghai, this is not the pace to find it.
