A day in Shanghai’s Da’ning Lingshi Park

It’s that part of the year again – when flowers are blossoming, and people in Shanghai are visiting the parks with large parterres on display. Apparently, the Spring blossom is quite a thing in many parts of Asia, with many getting excited about it.

I’m not a big fan of flowers. However, I’ve decided to give it a try and visit the Da’ning Lingshi Park, famous for its tulips and flowering trees. Although it was a Monday, the park was overcrowded, as people in China are celebrating the Tomb-Sweeping Day (Qingming Jie) and are off from work.

Da’ning Lingshi Park is very large; it has many alleys, two lakes, a sand beach(!!!) and of course, many beautiful flowers. You can check below some of the pictures I took there.

People were enjoying being in the park. After all, taking a break from Shanghai’s concrete can only be welcoming. Some of them even brought tents from home and installed them in the park – so they could take naps and spend there an entire day.
That was more interesting for me to see than all the blossoming flowers.

Other people were fishing in the lakes, and I’m wondering what kind of permit do you need to fish there.

If you haven’t visited any place with flowers coming into bloom yet, you should hurry up – that’s not going to last long.
