Jing’An Sculpture Park – a Pleasant Place in Shanghai

Jing'An Sculpture Park

If you are going to the Shanghai Natural History Museum, you will very likely stroll through the Jing'An Sculpture Park.  It is a pleasant oasis in the middle of the hussle and bustle of the busy Jing'An area of the city.

China, Shanghai, Jing'An, Sculpture ParkThe park provides a nice setting for both leisure strolls and exercise.  As you walk or run through it, you can admire the interesting sculptures in it — please see the photos in this posting

This park is located at the intersection of Beijing West Road and Shimen 2 Road.  It is also at the Natural History museum stop of the number 13 metro line.

There are tons of trees in the park as well as of course the sculptures of all sort and shapes – some of them pretty whimsical (in my opinion)

This morning, during my morning run, I took a bunch of photos.  Several of them are below in this posting.

One of the big uses of the park is for morning exercises.  Go here around 7, or 7:30am on the weekends, and you will find groups of folks doing all sort of TaiQi.   Then there are the groups of sword dancers – the old grannies are well organized and moving in unison… I come across to do my monring runs as well.

Enough said, here are some photos to give you an idea…
