Walking in Shanghai – Lu Xun Park

Lu Xun Park returned to normal. When the spring breeze filled the park, nearby residents stepped into the park to exercise, enjoy flowers, sit idle, stroll, and so on. I also followed the steps of spring to see the spring in the park.

Lu Xun Park, formerly known as Hongkou Park, is located at Hongkou District, Shanghai. It is a major historical and cultural memorial park in Shanghai and China's first sports park. Lu Xun Park was built very early. As early as the end of the 19th century, it was a target range outside Sichuan Road (now Sichuan North Road), which belongs to the Ministry of Public Concession, and a part of the park was later demarcated for Hongkou Park.

In October 1956, on the twentieth anniversary of Lu Xun's death, the tomb of Lu Xun was moved from the National Cemetery to Hongkou Park. There is a Lu Xun Memorial Hall in the style of Jiangnan private houses in the park.

Lu Xun was the pen name of Zhou Shuren (25 September 1881 – 19 October 1936), a Chinese writer, essayist, poet, and literary critic. He was a leading figure of modern Chinese literature. Writing in Vernacular Chinese and Classical Chinese, he was a short story writer, editor, translator, literary critic, essayist, poet, and designer.

In 1988, Hongkou Park was officially renamed Lu Xun Park, and Hongkou Stadium was rebuilt and renamed Hongkou Football Stadium.
