We went to this park on a Saturday, expecting tons of people, and, yet, it was lovely and not so crowded! The entrance is free, but you do need to pay for parking if you come with a car. It was entertainingly good to walk around the park; many locals were dancing, singing, playing chess, some even feeding pigeons and... More

We stumbled onto this place while looking for the "animal market" which was reported to be NE of Zizhuyuan Qiao near Xisanhuan (W 3rd ring road). Admission was free but it looks as if that may change as there were gates and ticket booths at the multiple entrances (or maybe they used to charge an admission fee). The park has... More

It's sceanic and if you have the extra time, do visit. By mid morning there will be senior citizens doing the waltz (perfectly well mind you) at the entrance of the park...nice to watch...

Going to this park is very easy: take Line 4 to National Library, then exit D and continue for about 100 meters and it's right there on the right. It's a rather large, well kept park, with many different kinds of bamboos for sure, lakes where one can rent a boat, an amusement place for small children. But what is... More

I have visited here at all times of the year, with the ice frozen solid on the lakes and with the sun hot and the lilies in full bloom. At all times of the year it is a delight, local people practice their dancing, they are aesthetic with their streamers, sing, play and enjoy the ambience of this delightful area.... More

This park is just a few hundred meters alongside the main road from the Beijing Zoo. It's very quiet, a good place to take a rest before exploring some more of Beijing.

Some tourist guides call this place Purple Bamboo Park or Zizhuyuan Park. The park is located near Beijing ZOO. Entrance fee is 2 RMB per person. The park is really nice but next to the park is a noisy road. There are a lot of different parks in Beijing but this park has atmosphere.
