The predecessor of Shanghai Peace Park was a desolate small village. During World War II, many Jews were in exile in the Tilanqiao area, Hongkou District, Shanghai. Hongkou District was occupied by Japanese troops.
The Tilan Park was built after liberation. The park was named the “Tilan Park” because it was located in the Tilanqiao area of Hongkou District. In 1959, in order to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the founding of the country, and to educate future generations to never forget history, the “Tilan Park” was renamed. “Shanghai Peace Park”.
I stepped into the Peace Park after a heavy rain. After the rain, the sun shone on the trees in the park, the lake, and the figures of people walking. The air is filled with moist smell, but also accompanied by the freshness of flowers and plants.
