  • Historical evolution
Lu Xun Park was built very early. As early as the end of the 19th century, it was a shooting range outside the boundary of Sichuan Road (now North Sichuan Road) belonging to the Ministry of public concession works. Later, a part of the park was built and opened in 1905. It was initially called "new shooting range Park" and renamed Hongkou Park in 1922. Because of its vast sports venues, it is often used by the army and the police as a place for training and military parade. The first to use the park was the paramilitary organization, the world business group. As soon as the political and military situation around Shanghai changed, the world business group entered the park for training. In the 1920s, when warlords of all factions fought for Shanghai, the business groups of all countries entered the park every morning and evening for two years.
The second Far East Games was held here from May 15 to 22, 1915, and the fifth Far East Games was held from May 30 to June 4, 1921.
Hongkou Park is expanded on the basis of the shooting range. Its area is slightly smaller than Zhaofeng Park, but it is larger than other parks. In 1906, it was partially opened to foreigners. In 1909, it was fully opened to foreigners. In 1928, it was opened to Chinese. It is the most important leisure and entertainment center in the north of Suzhou River.
On April 29, 1932, the "bomb case of Hongkou Park" happened in Hongkou Park, which caused a sensation in the whole country and even in East Asia. Yin Fengji, an anti Japanese volunteer of North Korea, dropped bombs on the rostrum, killing Bai Chuan, commander of the occupying forces, he Duan, head of the overseas Chinese residential corps, Chong guangkui, Minister of Japan in China, cunjing, consul of Shanghai, Nomura, commander of the warship of the occupying forces, Zhitian, commander of the division, and Youye, Secretary of the general's office. The case aroused the Anti Japanese sentiment of Shanghai citizens.
After the August 13 incident in 1937, Shanghai (China's territory) fell, and Hongkou Park was occupied by the Japanese army and renamed "new park". As this is a place where Japanese expatriates live, Chinese seldom dare to go to the park. In the southeast of the original park shooting range, it was transformed into "Japan Shanghai Shrine" by the Japanese to serve as a memorial hall for the dead officers and soldiers of the Japanese army who invaded China.
After the victory of the Anti Japanese War, the park was taken over by the Chinese government and renamed as "Zhongzheng Park" (the name of Zhongzheng, Chiang Kai Shek), but it was still called Hongkou Park by the people. After the founding of new China, the park and stadium were separated and named Hongkou Park and Hongkou Stadium.
Lu Xun came to Shanghai from Guangzhou in October 1927. He has lived in Shanghai for nine years. He has come to Hongkou Park many times. When Lu Xun died, people wanted to change Hongkou Park into Lu Xun Park, but it failed for various reasons. In October 1956, on the 20th anniversary of Lu Xun's death, Lu Xun's tomb was moved from the universal cemetery to Hongkou Park. In the park, there is a Lu Xun memorial hall with Jiangnan folk house style.
In 1988, Hongkou Park was officially renamed Lu Xun Park, while Hongkou Stadium was rebuilt and renamed Hongkou Football Field.
