Yuyuan Garden, in the center of the old city of Shanghai, near Chenghuangmiao in Shanghai, was built over a 20-year period by the son of an aging official in the Ming Dynasty, to please his father. Eventually the gardens fell into disrepair, but they were restored by the Shanghai government between 1956 and 1961 and opened to the public. They were declared a national monument in 1982.
