Located in northern Shanghai’s Yangpu District, Gongqing National Forest Park is a large public park featuring various activities such as boating, barbecue, horse riding, and amusement park-style games and rides. Given its location, Gongqing National Forest Park is less crowded than the city’s more centrally located greenspaces. For those seeking a pleasant outing away from the busy activity in downtown Shanghai, Gongqing National Forest Park is a great choice.

Getting There - I cycled about 1.5 hours to get there from my hotel but Metro Line 8 gets to a station close by. Stop at the end of the line 8 - Shiguang road and cycle or walk (20 mins plus+) to the park.. or better yet, stop at the Xiangyin station and take a bus 102 to get closer to the park.. It is worth it..
Attractions - If you like nature... then this is definitely a must - see.. They also have loads of activities like horseback riding, canoeing, amusement park with rides for kids and adults.. football pitch, an area for picnics... Awesome for a day getaway from city hassle...
Food - A lot of stores within the park to get water, ice cream, crisps and some typical Chinese finger snacks..
Address - 上海市-杨浦区-军工路2000号
Getting There - recommended by car or Line 8 to SHIguang and call a taxi later
Attractions - It's the best season for Hydrangea blooming in May. At that time the place is like a wonderland. Bring your camera and catch this fantastic moment!
There are also a few amusement facilities in the park. A good place for family or friend gatherings.
Food & Restaurants - there are some small shops in the park, but few restaurant in the park or nearby. Better to prepare some food and have a picnic!
Less than an hour ride on metro from the city center, Gongqing National Forest Park is my favorite park in Shanghai. The park is designed to be covered with different kinds of landscape with forest remains the main feature. More than 200 types of tree, total of more than 300,000 trees are planted here. From end of May to mid June is the Hydrangea season here, different colors of hydrangea can be found blooming around the park. This park is nice to visit in different seasons for different plants and flowers.
