Sheshan park lures visitors with sculptures, scenery, drones

Shanghai Sculpture Park in Sheshan National Holiday Resort in Songjiang has added a tourist service center, an art gallery and a clubhouse with dining and conference venues and guestrooms.

The new facilities will enhance the appeal of the park which attracts visitors with a rich collection of sculptures and the beautiful Moon Lake with changing scenery in four seasons.

Early this year, a 56,000-square-meter airfield for drones was built in the park for UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) enthusiasts to fly their drones. The park also provides training and related services.

In addition, a mini railroad will be constructed in the park to carry visitors on a scaled-down train to view sculptures and points of interest in the park. Accucraft Trains, a US company, will provide the high-performance mini train.

The park has developed a phone app to provide information and guide and to collect visitors’ feedback so as to make improvements accordingly.
