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

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...
