Lu Xun Park information
Particularly photogenic in spring and summer when the trees are in blossom, Lu Xun Park is one of the city’s most pleasant green spaces. Here you'll find elderly Chinese practising taichi or ballroom dancing, and even retired opera singers testing out their pipes. It’s a big shame about the fenced-in lawn, but the Plum Garden is an attractive diversion.
The English Corner on Sunday mornings is one of the largest in all of Shànghǎi and it's a good place to natter to locals in English. You can take boats out onto the small lake. The park used to be called Hóngkǒu Park but was renamed because it holds Lu Xun’s Tomb, moved here from the International Cemetery in 1956, on the 20th anniversary of his death.
