Lushu Park in Zhonglou


Lushu Park 芦墅公园 is a rather small public place in Zhonglou. In theory, Canal 5 is not that far away — but there is the actual canal in the way. Qing Feng park is also many kilometers away, and that usually acts as the bigger distraction. Lushu is more of a place where you see locals sleeping on the benches. Typically, older men sit around here during the day to play cards. In the many times I have been here, I have seen a number of stray cats huddles into the corner. Essentially, this is a small recreational area serving the residential estates nearby. It’s a nice place to take a stroll in the area, but honestly, this isn’t worth a special trip — especially on a very hot, very wet, very muggy day.
