Where to Enjoy Cherry Blossom in Shanghai

Traditionally, a blooming cherry trie or Sakura (樱花 🌸 yīnghuā) is a symbol of Japan, but if you are traveling around China or live here, you can enjoy it without leaving 中国 Zhōngguó! In today’s post, we will share top 3 places where you can find cherry blossom in Shanghai and take amazing pictures there (:

1. Gucun Park, 顾村公园

  • Address: 上海市沪太路4788号
  • Working time: every day from 6 am to 6 pm (but you can’t buy a ticket after 4.30 pm)
  • Ticket price: 20元

This park is located quite far from downtown and it will take you about an hour to get there by subway (line 7, Gucun Park station, exit 3 🔸 7号线,顾村公园地铁站, 3号口). Cherry blossom festival at this park lasts from March 15 to April 15.

The park is very big, so prepare to spend half a day there.

You can also visit the area with dinosaurs and attractions, but for an additional price.

2. Jing’an Sculpture Park, 静安雕塑公园

  • Address: 上海市静安区石门二路128号 (近北京西路)
  • Working time: from 5 am to 10 pm

This park is located at the very heart of downtown: not far from the subway station West Nanjing Road ♦ 南京西路 on the line 2/12 (2或者12号线) or Natural History Museum station ♦ 自然博物馆 on the line 13 (13号线).
