OK,.. that's an interesting statistic, does anybody also know how SH compares to other Chinese Metropolises like Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong ?

For actual parks, Hong Kong is probably even worse, but is much smaller than Shanghai, so is practically "surrounded" by parks.

As for Shenzhen, is a festival of green areas, like half of the city are parks.

Hong Kong is 3/4 undeveloped countryside.
