This park in Shanghai is dedicated to the writer Lu Xun, whose works greatly influenced communist leaders such as Mao Zedong.

While I only wandered through one section of the park, elsewhere there is also a small amusement park and other themed areas. There was a surprisingly large amount of people in the open square areas, often dancing or singing – very popular pursuits in parks here.

While I wouldn’t say this park was particularly exciting, it was a relatively nice area to relax and appreciate some greenery. There are some much nicer parks elsewhere in Shanghai though, for example Century Park or (further out) the Haiwan National Forest Park.
