Green Zones in Shanghai?

Hi everyone, I am moving to Shanghai with my husband in April but next month his company is sponsoring us to visit for 5 days to look at areas where we'd like to live.
My biggest concern is the pollution, so I'm looking for the greenest areas and would love to hear your advice on the Xuhui and Xintiandi areas - there seem to be a handful of parks in the area. Also is it possible to find older type, more charming housing in these areas? We don't want to live in a compound or serviced high-rise apartment. Thanks for any advice!
