With about 10 ha. in size, Fuxing Park is located in the former French Concession of Shanghai, in Luwan District near Nanchang Road. Built in 1909, the park has preserved a French classic garden design with over 1,700 plane trees more than 50 years old, providing a green haven that shields people from the summer sunshine.

According to Time magazine's Hannah Beech, it is one of the must-see sights in Shanghai. The park was originally named Gu's Park, but during the French occupation it became a military encampment. After the French, the Japanese renamed the park "Daxing Park." Finally, in the mid 20th century, the Chinese regained control of the park land and dubbed it "Fuxing Park."

Early morning, the park fills with dancers, card players, mahjong enthusiasts, and tai chi solo and group artists.
