If you want to see animals in city center of Shanghai and also go for a picnic on the weekend, I would especially recommend Shanghai Zoo! There are many animals to watch here, including the national treasure giant panda, African animals, marine life, terrestrial life and more than 620 kinds. Children can also experience feeding small animals by themselves. There is a super large lawn in the zoo, which is a good place for picnics on weekends. There is also a big Ferris wheel next to the lawn! Taking photos there are really nice! The most important thing is that the zoo is near the Hongqiao Airport, which is very convenient to go there, and also the ticket is very cheap, and the cost-effective weekend leisure destination.

We went there after lunch by Didi🚗 and it was only 50rmb but you can get there by Metro🚆 through Line 10 and get off at Shanghai Zoo station.
We paid 40 rmb for 2 adults and our daughter 🧑 got it for free because she is less than 1.3 M tall.
We went through the fish, reptile and amphibians area and they had most of the popular animals that would be great to extend learning for children and enjoy as adults too.
After that we were led to a shuttle 🛺that costs 15/person and again free for children. The trip toom us to the Panda🐼 enclosure and basically all the other animals from all over the world!🦁🐯🦝🐮🦓🐴🦎🐢🐊🐍🦬🐐🦌🦘🦥🦙🐘🦏🦒🦍🦧🐿️
My daughter enjoyed it especially when we can buy popsicles 🍡at every turn. There were also some rides🎢🎡🎠🎪 that you can enjoy while taking a break or benches🪑 to sit and relax and feel the fresh air 🌬️from the trees 🌳and plants surrounding the zoo.
I wish we can stroll around for free everyday but we need to take care of the animals too!
