Big park in the middle of Beijing; nothing much to do/see as a tourist; but not a bad spot for a laid back afternoon stroll to see the locals activities in the park. There's a german café inside with a decent food. In the middle there's an altar to worship the Sun God (if I'm not wrong). Too bad we... More

Lovely park , specially if you have children it's nice to go for a walk. If you don't mind many people then weekends will be great to go, otherwise week days will be better if you don't like to see so many people. They have very beautiful cafe next to the lake ( unfortunately always very busy ,hard to get... More

This park is located in the middle of Russian/Chinese trade zone with a lot of shops and restaurants which can remind you about 90s in Russia. Tricky sellers, exchange guys with criminal faces and strange offers on the mixed languages. This park is very silent, beautiful. It is free of charge, has a few places copying famous sights from Summer... More

A real gem close to the CBD, a real locals park with families out for the day, Tai Chi, badminton, picnics all taking place. Lovely lakes, gardens, seating and paths that lead to all different parts of the park. I highly recommend it for a hour or so.

If there is something awesome about Beijing is its parks. This one is a small but beautiful park near the lavish Embassy houses. Very relaxing and not crowded in the morning

OK it shouldn't be top priority for a first visit in Beijing, but I like very much the quiet, familial and casual atmosphere of this 'public garden', which features a vast array of all things you want to see in a Chinese garden, plus the great view over Guomao and other high-rise buildings from the top of its small hill.

Seeing Beijingers relaxing and enjoying themselves makes you wonder how their leaders can be so stiff and formal. A wander round RiTan Park brings you face to face with elderly men playing keepy-uppy with a shuttlecock, grandparents taking care of toddlers, teenagers braving a five metre climbing wall, games of chess and checkers, and ball-room dancing in the open air...

I went for a walk in this park as it was close to my hotel (the wonderful Eclat which I've reviewed before). This is a great park for walking, sitting or people-watching; locals come to have picnics, play music, practice dancing, exercise and I even came across a group of small children being taught English. Entrance is free and there... More
