Ritan park, is less advertised but really a hidden gem of the parks in Beijing. It is excellent to walk, relax, have a picnic or just sit and watch the world go by. From the Chaoyangmen metro station (exit D) take a bus 110 for 1 stop only and then walk for 5 minutes. Make sure to go in the... More

Ritan park is nice place to visit if you have plenty of time in Beijing and the must-see places are already visited. This park is surrounded by the Embassy area (or another one of them) and therefore nice to walk around. But Ritan Park is nothing super special if one has only little time in Beijing, there are definitely more... More

We can for the bouncy house and kids rides, we have an 8 y.o. who needed that! What all of us found was more interesting were the beautiful Shinto inspired rock gardens. A wonderful way to spend a few hours on a hot day.

This is a relatively small but nicely laid out park only few 10 min away from CBD. The park has few traditional pavilions around the lake and a rockery. You can actually walk along the rockery and go to the man made caves but need to wear comfy shoes. Water lilies bloom in July so highly recommend as the pink... More

This is a nice park but it is hard to see why it would be rated as a "must-see" feature of Beijing. Perhaps its position in the middle of lots of concrete and chaos makes it a good place to escape. It is certainly very scenic with lots of mature trees offering shade. Maybe sunsets are (were?) spectacular but one... More

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
