Definitely on the smaller side, this newly-renovated park won't hold much for nature-seekers, but it's a nice dash of green in the midst of the Xuhui business district. Its tree-lined promenade is a favorite for evening dances, often packed out with couples doing the tango, foxtrot or even the occasional waltz. It's also got a decent sized lawn (which you can't go on), a fountain and a central pavilion that hosts in musicians and cultural performances. Plus, they finally knocked down that fence, which means it's free and open 24/7. It's busy, but it's convenient and it's just nice to have around, honestly.
