Date: 2014.09.19 Editor: Evelyn Shi

Lu Xun Park reopened after one-year-long renovation in Shanghai on Aug. The park is dedicated to Lu Xun, a leading figure of modern Chinese literature who lived from 1881 to 1936.



The park contains the Lu Xun Memorial Hall and Lu Xun's tomb. Originally built in 1896, the park follows the style of the sports park in Glasgow, United Kingdom and designed by a British garden designer. Now, a square named "world literary masters square" with statues of Shakespeare among other literary masters has been built in the park, making it a memorial park with British style.
