This was our third visit to these beautiful and relaxing gardens. Lots of different botanically themed areas, extensive parkland and lakes, a converted quarry and so on, which absorb the crowds well. Locals take their tents and picnics for the day. Quieter areas on the Western and Eastern edges. Basic canteen in the entrance hall, snacks available in the gardens, including delicious ice-cream. At least an hour from the city centre by car, also 15 mins taxi ride to subway line 9, make a day of the area and visit either Sheshan or Tianmashan nearby, the latter Shanghai’s highest point at around 100m above sea-level.

This is a nice to park to visit. It is very big so so you should plan to spend half a day here. There are big open spaces including a quarry park.

There are also three domes that are very similar to the ones in Singapore gardens by the bay. They have a good collection of tropical flowers as well as cactuses in these domes.

This is a really nice park. The botanical gardens are great to walk around in. There are a lot of different themed areas. And there are a couple nice places for children to play at. Worth checking out.

Take Line 9 to Dongjing Station. Buses are available to the park, FOC. Park is super huge. A good variety of flowers and trees there. Plenty of families put up their tents and picnic there. Plenty of room for all. Park is well maintained.

We have visited these fantastic and gigantic gardens twice in the last month. Plenty for all the family. Perfect for a day out, bring a picnic and find your perfect spot to set up a base to explore the gardens. For kids the pirate ship and children's zoo area will keep them busy. It costs 60 rmb to enter.

It’s a little bit in the middle of nowhere but well worth a visit. Lots of work still going on the develop the park. You can take a picnic and walk on the grass. There are all sorts of places to explore and things for kids to do. We did not see the whole park because it is huge

This place is marvellous at any time of the year. Chinese people love picnic: even in November we saw a lot of tents and blankets with hungry people eating on them. You can walk and lay on the grass, and there are also 2 children playgrounds, one of the, the pirates' ship wreck is gorgeous.
From Sheshan metro station bus 95 (5 stations), from the next metro station bus number 19 (7 stations), cca. 10 minutes ride, you can pay with metro card or cash, show the lady who collects the fee where do you want to go, the fee depends on the distance.
Perfect 1day trip from the center of shanghai.

Travel by Metro Line 9 to Sheshan station. And then, go to bus stop in front of the Metro. You can take bus No.... 67 around 5 stations. Tickets 60RMB (Normal, I'm not sure), 30RMB (Student card).

นั่งสาย9 ลง Sheshan แล้วก็ขึ้นบัสข้างหน้าสถานี เลข..(ภาษาจีนไรไม่รู้)..67 นั่งไป5ป้ายก็ลง แล้วเดินเข้าสวนเลย มีคนจีนไปเยอะ เดินตามคนจีนไปเลย มีโดมกระจก3โดม มีเขาให้ขึ้น มีสัตว์4ชนิด ราคา ถ้าใช้บัตรนักเรียน30หยวน เต็มราคาน่าจะ60หยวน พท.กว้างมากกกก หารองเท้าที่สะดวกต่อการเดินทาง ขากลับขึ้นได้ทั้ง (.....67) และ(....95)ไปลงหน้า Metro

Long subway ride for a tranquil walk in man-made nature. You have 3 greenhouses to visit, a petting zoo and walk in a cave. Enough to satisfy the curiosity of your children. The park doesn't have much to offer other than that. Bring some snacks!
