Historical evolution

The Park was originally a beach marsh along the Huangpu River. In 1956, the Shanghai Municipal Government dredged the river course and reclaimed the wasteland and opened up a nursery.

In 1958, Comrade Hu Yaobang, Secretary of the Central Committee of the Spring League, led the National Youth activists meeting in Shanghai to plant fruit trees. In the nursery, the Youth Experimental Orchard was established, named Communist Green Nursery; in early 1982, as a key practical project of the municipal government to expand the area of public green space, the northern part of the Communist Green Nursery was transformed into a "Communist Green Forest Park", which was officially opened to the outside world in March 1986; at the end of 1995, the southern part of the Communist Green Nursery was built into a "Wanzhu Garden" and opened one after another.

In 1986, it was renamed Gongqing Forest Park. In January 2006, the park was officially approved by the State Forestry Administration as a National Forest Park and named "Shanghai Communist Youth National Forest Park".
