Have not come yet? The coal hill to the north gate of the Palace Museum is one of must see imperial park.. Coals used to heat the imperial palace used to be piled up at the foot of the hill before 1900. The earth were from the moat surrounding the emperor's palace. Climb up to highest point, you could have... More

Go figure the Forbidden City was forbidden on Mondays so we decided to explore the park which was a great find. Climbed up the hill and enjoyed the beautiful views of Beijing and the Forbidden City.

Many of the big tourist sites in or near Beijing require a LOT of walking. The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Beihai Park, The Temple of Heaven, and others serve as great examples. One of my favorite things about Jingshan Park is that it only takes a few minutes to walk to the top. It's a steep walk in places,... More

This is a lovely park to visit in Beijing. From the top of the hill you have a beautiful view over the Forbidden City. Bonus the cost is only 2 yuan for a ticket. There is a plaque to mark the spot where a tree was used by a former emperor to hang himself when the invading forces broke through... More

My wife and I visited the park with our tourist guide after we did The Forbidden City. Both in our early 50's and it was an easy walk up to the top. Beautiful view of The Forbidden City and parts of Beijing. Ground plaque on the top showing that you are at the centre of Beijing.

The hill was built hundreds of years ago from the dirt dug out to make the moat around the Forbidden City. From the top you look down into the Forbidden City and really see its scope. The variety of music and dancing in every corner of park is amazing. My favorite: Go in the East Gate, straight in, then up... More

It was so neat to see how the locals spend their time at Jingshan Park: Playing cards or music, doing tai chi, dancing, or the lovely group of older women in costumes doing dances for the crowd. The ladies were my favourite, as they were the happiest looking group of people we saw in Beijing, and they looked like they... More
