Getting There:  Lu Xun park is located at 146 East Jiangwan Rd. (146 jiang wan Lu)  near the Hongkou Stadium.  Getting there is very easy by metro.  Take line 8 to the Hongkou Stadium station and get out at exit 1.  At the sidewalk turn left (so the stadium is on your left) and walk about 200 yards to the park entrance.  There is no entrance fee.

 

The park was built in 1896 as a shooting field.  In 1905 they added an amusement park area (kiddy rides).  The famous Chinese writer, Lu Xun, was placed in a mausoleum on the park grounds and the park is now dedicated to him.
