For spring visitors, one of the must-visit attractions in Shanghai is the Spring Shore in Shanghai Moon Lake Sculpture Park.
The park was built with the concept of "returning to nature and enjoying art". In the park, visitors can enjoy modern sculptures, natural landscapes, and landscape art all at the same time.
The park spans 100 hectares and is centered on the 31-hectare Moon Lake. More than 80 outdoor sculptures with different shapes and concepts created by contemporary artists from more than 20 countries are scattered around the lake. They perfectly match with the scenic mountains, extraordinary artistic landscapes and architecture.
Areas around the lake are divided into Four Season themed zones, which include Spring Shore, Summer Shore, Autumn Shore, and Winter Shore. The four zones feature different landscapes and architectural styles.
The Spring Shore mainly consists of stalactite caves built by imitating karst stalactites, a water curtain bridge, a water stage, a tourist service center, cafes, the Shenxin Master Water Sports Club, and master-level sculptures of various shapes.
The water curtain bridge is a one-of-a-kind structure. The bridge surface is glass, and water spray systems are located on both sides of the bridge. The bridge also has a lighting design that will provide a vibrant nighttime scene.
The water stage is Shanghai's largest built-on-water stage to date, enabling over 1,500 spectators to watch performances.
The Shenxin Master Water Sports Club is one of Shanghai's Songjiang district's few private water sports clubs. It has hosted numerous public and professional athlete training programs and events.
The tourist service center provides comprehensive services such as consultations, storage, tour guides, transfers, catering and leisure, information and basic medical treatment.
