  • Historical evolution
  • Newly built
The predecessor of Shanghai Peace Park was a desolate small village. During World War II, many Jews were exiled in the tiranqiao area of Shanghai, China (at that time, peace park belonged to the tiranqiao area). After the outbreak of the Anti Japanese War, Hongkou was occupied by the Japanese army. At that time, the Japanese aggressor army built six air raid shelters as ammunition depots in the present park.
After liberation, in order to benefit the people, the party and the government transformed the land that had suffered from war into a paradise for the people.  Relying on the people to dig lakes, build mountains and plant trees here, a comprehensive park with beautiful scenery and beautiful mountains and rivers has been built. The park was named "basket Park" because it was located in Tilanqiao District, Hongkou District. In 1959, in order to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the people's Republic of China, and to educate future generations to never forget history and love peace, "basket Park" was renamed "Shanghai Peace Park".
  • Reform
In recent years, great development has been made in the construction and management of the park. The municipal governments have invested a lot of money to adjust and reconstruct the scenic spots in the park, build mountains and rivers, improve the environment, increase more than 30 kinds of new plant varieties, pay attention to the construction of scenic spots, and enrich the varieties of plants and the colors of scenic spots.

There are more than 60 kinds of animals in the park, such as lion, tiger, bear, leopard, birdsong forest, etc. The diversity of biology makes the park show the harmony between human and nature.
  • Animal Island
Peace Park, which has been built for 50 years, has undergone the largest transformation since September 2007. Before the renovation, the park issued 1000 consultation forms to tourists, and 96% of the citizens asked to keep animals. For this reason, the park decided to transform the bird island around the lake into an ecological animal island. African lions, Amur tigers, brown bears, leopards, monkeys, white cheeked gibbons, sika deer and birds, which were originally scattered in captivity, moved to the island for free breeding. In 2008, the Spring Festival opened to the public. Shanghai Peace Park is the only park in Shanghai except Shanghai Zoo where animals are displayed. The whole ecological animal island covers an area of about 10 mu and is surrounded by water. On the west side of the island, there is a unique bridge to enter the ecological animal Island, from which tourists can enter the island to watch animals. In tiger, lion, bear, leopard and other animal sanctuaries, there are transparent plexiglass viewing windows on the fence. Young children can see the animals when standing, so as to avoid the insecurity when adults hold children to watch. The park has also set up a special sewage treatment pipeline to discharge animal manure to avoid pollution of the island and lake water.
On the east side of the island, a long wooden bridge has been built. From the bridge pavilion at gate 2 of the park, the two sides of the lake are connected into a winding and undulating bank. On the inner side, a wetland covering one fifth of the island has been increased. The wetland will be planted with ornamental plants such as lotus, water lily, rushes, flower leaf reed, etc., and the small white goose and other animals will be raised on the water surface to enhance the ornamental effect. In addition, some fruit trees will be added to the plant configuration of the ecological animal island to create the visual effect of spring flowers and autumn fruits, reflecting the characteristics of "biodiversity" of the ecological animal island.
The opening hours of ecological animal island are 9:00-16:00 (15:30 stop admission)
