Entrance of The Green Hills Shanghai and Willowbrook
Green Hills (Simplified Chinese: 云间绿大地, PinYin: yún jiān lǜ dà dì) sometimes also called Yunjian Greenlands Villa, is a very popular appartment and villa compound in PuDong for expats and wealthy Chinese living in Shanghai.
Green Hills Shanghai & Willow Brooks probably have one of the largest communities of expat kids living in one, well actually two combined compounds. The very peaceful park setting make Green Hills & Willow Brooks extremely popular with expats and Chinese alike.

The location in Jinqiao, sitting just next to Luo Shan Lu, provides access quick to Lian Yang/Thumb Plaza Area, the Century Park and JinQiao Green City. Lujiazhui can be reached in 10-15 mins, The Peoples Square, depending traffic, within 30~60 minutes.
The compound offers a bus running to several locations in the city several times per day. The next subway is a bit far though.
Eventhough GreenHills is already a little “old” (constructed around 2001) the compound is well maintained and very peaceful and eventhough there are no hills, it is VERY green and in a park-like setting.
