Historical evolution

In 1958, the Shanghai Municipal Garden Administration Department established nurseries in Dianfeng and Xicen on the Hunan shore of Dianshan. Due to national economic difficulties, nurseries were abolished and land was returned to agriculture in 1961-1962.

On October 23, 1978, the Shanghai Municipal Landscape Administration put forward a plan for the construction of Dianshan Lake Scenic Spot. On the same month, Peng Chongdi, the third secretary of the Shanghai Municipal Committee, made a field survey and decided to locate it in Yangshe. On November 17, the same year, with the approval of the Municipal Planning Committee, it agreed to plan comprehensively and build by stages so as to gradually build a relatively complete scenic spot for sightseeing. In the first phase, Guanwangmiao and Yangshe tourist districts were built in advance.

Since January 1979, the Dianfeng Brigade and Yangshe Brigade on the lakeside of Dianshan Lake have been requisitioned in two phases. The first phase is 308.2 million square meters, and the second phase is 593.2 million square meters, totaling 901.4 million square meters. All land requisitions were completed on December 27, 1979.

Beginning in early 1980, the construction of greening and road, bridge and culvert, revetment and other basic projects began. In order to support the construction of Grand View Garden in Shanghai, the relevant departments of Beijing allocated the stone lion to Shanghai. In the second half of 1981, the "Yihong Court" was first built in May 1984 and opened to visitors on the 27th. Subsequently, while building, we opened up. The Qingshang Highway and Baishiji Bridge within the scope of the tourist area were reconstructed by the Municipal Engineering Bureau in 1986.

Daguanyuan Archaic Architecture Complex was completed on October 15, 1988 after seven years of construction. The whole area was opened to the outside world on October 20, 1988. It was first named Dianshan Lake Scenic Area in Shanghai. In January, 1985, it was renamed Dianshan Lake Grand View Park Tourist Area in Shanghai. In 1991, it was named Shanghai Grand View Park.

Design layout

The design of Grand View Garden is obviously different from that of Beijing Grand View Garden in that Shanghai Grand View Garden has laid out a large area of artificial lakes in the park by utilizing the characteristics of Jiangnan Watertown. Taking the gate-Tirenmude-Grand View Tower as the central axis, there are more than 10 buildings and more than 20 scenic spots with a total construction area of 7837 square meters. Designing the winding and secluded big rockery as the entrance barrier, taking digging the lake for soil and dumping up a 16-meter-high hill as the background of the grand view building, constituting the magnificent momentum of the mountain water behind the grand view building. The whole park is centered on the Great Lakes, with ponds and Qinfangxi communicating with each scenic spot, constituting a main and branch, dynamic and static water system, pavilions and pavilions along the lakeside, curved bridges, stone bunkers and stone lanterns in the lake, and bridges and pavilions on the stream, forming a landscape of Jiangnan Garden with heavy mountains and rivers and flowing families. The Grand View Garden uses the traditional architectural concept of "the garden must be sealed and separated" to seek momentum flow and cohesion center in the enclosure. It builds a small enclosed and centripetal world with rich connotations, increases the level of scenery, integrates architecture and environment, and makes the Grand View Garden landscape in A Dream of Red Mansions reappear.
