Zhongshan Park occupies 214,200 square meters (53 acres, 21 hectares) and is beautifully landscaped. The floral displays at the entrance welcome me into the park and set the stage for more elegance and beauty.
Park entrance and flowerbeds just inside
Manicured and well-maintained paths lead through the sections of the park and offer a new sight and experience around each corner.

And, a few sculptures are randomly scattered around to add to the delight for the eyes.
I wander into a small museum just inside the park entrance and find a history of Shanghai, the birthplace of the Chinese Communist Party. The museum emphasizes the "Cohesion Project," the interconnection, interaction, co-development, and focus on complementary aspects of each sub-district of the city with the goal of bringing everyone closer together in one community.
Zhongshan Park offers a little of everything, with something for everyone, and visiting the park is a great way to spend a lazy Sunday morning and watch the community turn out and have fun.
