Fuxing Park 复兴公园

  • French-style park
  • Area of 10 hectares

Fuxing Park (pronounced "foo-shing") in the former French Concession area was a private garden purchased by the French in 1908 and redesigned with elements of a classic Parisian jardin.

Known as the "French Park" in the colonial period, Fuxing Park has cherry tree-lined promenades, covered pavilions, a fountain, a center lake and ornamental flower beds.

The park's other facilities include a rose garden, a children's playground, places to eat and drink, and a modernist statue of socialist heroes Marx and Engels.
