A nice peaceful place in the city. Nice walk watching people singing dancing and with a great scenery
Like in many big cities, it can be difficult in Beijing to find jogging routes where you're not dodging traffic and waiting seemingly endlessly to cross streets. Ritan Park provides an excellent venue for running, jogging, and walking in a scenic urban oasis among trees, bushes, flowers, ponds, and well-manicured grass. Ritan Park is very convenient to the St. Regis... More
The park is a wonderful place to go when you want to escape the noise and traffic of Beijing and to relax and stroll away a couple of hours. Families, musicians, kite flyers, fishermen, old trees, older rocks, you get the picture. I visited in the autumn but I understand there's a large swimming pool for those hot, dusty summer... More
My wife, two daughters (ages 7 & 10) and I decided to head over to Ritan Park on a hot summer day in August, and we sure are glad we did. My youngest daughter wasn’t feeling very well, and we didn’t want to go too far, but we wanted to get out of the hotel. We were staying fairly at... More
When I was a kid I used to come here a lot to play. They had different things from fishing, to riding or small ferris wheels to bumper cars. Now it's kind of a shadow of its former self. Still...it's a nice way to escape the city in this small patch of green. Nowadays you'll see a lot of people... More
It almost feels like one has left Beijing after entering this park. It is a lovely quiet place. There are small venues for food and drink, and benches for sitting in the shade of the trees. There is also a nice view of surrounding Beijing from the little hill.
I have been to Ri Tan Park a half dozen times. It is very beautiful. Located in the heart of the embassy district. It is a family par where children play, men and women are found playing music together and of course people practice Tai Chi all hours of the day. I don't think I've ever seen people eating in...

Ritan was once the altar of the sun. The actual altar still exists, unlike at Yuetan park, but it is locked off and you cannot access it. Standing on a small hill, you can see it, but it is a shame that it isn't open to the public. The park is nice and you can easily spend a good deal... More
We walked here from our hotel to find a bit of greenspace. It was interesting walking past all the embassies, and seeing the Russian neighbourhood just to the west. The park was inviting with lots of shade trees, and places to sit. We walked around for about half an hour watching tai chi, musical instruments, etc. Very pleasant.
My favorite spot in all of Beijing. It is peaceful, serene and gorgeous any time of the year. It is free and roaming around the winding paths you will really see Beijingers recreating in all different ways. Dance groups, badminton, Tai Chi, Rock Climbing wall, joggers, walkers, relaxing, meditation...on and on. There is something for everyone here. Bathrooms are decent... More
