“Good workout”

Sheshan Forest Park
Reviewed 7 October 2016

It is certainly steep but the walk is nice and there is a Catholic Basilica and astronomy museum at the top.

Sheshan Forest Park is a relatively small park surrounding the Sheshan mountain (hill).

It has well kept parts and it seemed there were lots of guides around the day I went.

The Sheshan Catholic Basilica (a national monument) is at the top of this hill, while the Astronomical Observatory is on the hillside.

You will find lots of people, mainly hiking around like me, or making a religious visit to the Church.

I think it is a great place to spend half a day, and that it can be combined with a visit to the Basilica and the Observatory.

Great spot to take the kids for a half-day trip. 3 hours walking around two little hills (about 80m vertical accent from parking lot to summit). No actual paths, just paved walkways. Wasn't too crowded when I went. Not something to do unless you live in Shanghai and looking for convenient ways to escape the urban jungle in my opinion.

Sheshan is a small hill in the songjiang district of shanghai with a church and short board walk on top. While the hill is a little underwhelming there is plenty to do in the area including a botanical garden, happy valley amusement park and Thames town. So definitely make a day of visiting this area but if you only come for the forest park it's not so nice.

Visited during weekend and while there were fairly much people wouldn't say that it was too crowded & some of the pathways like the wooden plank way from West gate to the South gate was very quiet and offered forest views which are so rare in Shanghai overall.

Recommend visiting the hill top astronomic museum (entrance 12 RMB) too as there are best views from there and the museum is interesting too.
