The South Garden has a southern scenery of small bridges and flowing water. In addition to sightseeing, visitors can also ride horses, barbecue and fish in the park.

Historical evolution

The park was originally a shoal marsh beside the Huangpu River. In 1956, the Shanghai municipal government dredged the river to reclaim wasteland and turned it into a nursery.

In the spring of 1958, Hu Yaobang, Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League, led the National Youth activists who met in Shanghai to plant fruit trees. A youth experimental orchard was established in the garden, named Gongqing nursery. In early 1982, as a key practical project for the municipal government to expand the area of public green space, the north part of Gongqing nursery was transformed into "Gongqing Forest Park", which was officially opened to the public in March 1986. At the end of 1995, the south part of Gongqing nursery was built into a "ten thousand bamboo garden", which was opened one after another.

In 1986, it was renamed Gongqing Forest Park. In January 2006, the park was officially approved as a national forest park by the State Forestry Administration and named as "Shanghai Gongqing National Forest Park".
