Jing’an Sculpture Park in Shanghai

I love this park!  It was closed for over a year while they rebuilt it, with the new Museum of Natural History in the middle.  Now it’s reopened and I wander through every time I’m in town.   

The Jing'an Sculpture Park is located on Beijing Road West, between Shimen Road No. 2 and Chengdu Road North, a 15-20 minute walk from People's Square and just down Beijing Road from the Shanghai Marriott City Centre where I stay. 

When I used to stay by the Shanghai Railway Station a few years ago, I would walk past the park almost every day after crossing the Wusong River as I headed toward Nanjing Road, People's Square, and/or the Bund.  After a few trips past, curiosity got the best of me and I went in.  Now, I go visit every time I'm in town.

Here are some of the great views.
