I love this park! We rented a pedal boat for 60 minites. But there were less pedal boats than electric boats. When we got to the pier, we had to wait. All of them were taken. But luckily, we got on one after 20minutes.

The lake scenery was spectacular, like gentle breeze, glittering water, greenary, and fairground rides.

My dad was pedalling the boat while enjoying a can of drink. My mom was busy taking photos. And I was seeing the beautiful view.

What an awesome experience.

We live opposite this park and spend a lot of time here. In the summer it has a water park and in winter a snow park! It’s lovely and big with walking and running paths and even fairground rides. You can hire family bikes or boats even in Summer. We’ve recently enjoyed walking round in the snow, but it’s a great year round park!

We got re-energized by exercising and having a jog in the park on this cool-weather, 12C, sunny October day.

Chaoyang Park is one of the few areas in Beijing with expansive open spaces in which kids can run around or ride their bicycles without their parents needing to constantly worry about oncoming traffic (although there are the occasional speeding tourist carts to be on the lookout for). Enter through the north or west entrances which relatively less foot traffic, as the locals prefer congregating in massive volume near the south entrance in order to enjoy the usual array of kitschy Chinese rides. That said, the Sony Science Museum in the south side is worth a visit if you have kids, with enough interesting exhibits to keep them occupied for a few hours. You can also splurge about RMB 80 for a boat ride in the mammoth artificial lake in the center of the park; however be aware that that Chinese driving skills get exponentially worse when using water-based vehicles!

For just 5RMB per person you can escape the traffic and noise of Beijing and descend into an oasis of greenery and water-based recreation.
Unlike many parks in China, Sun Park appears to cater more for families and groups of friends. As well as many people walking leisurely down the many paths, there are also a variety of wheeled transport – you can take a family quadracycle or one of the many battery powered vehicles.
Don’t worry if you get thirsty on route, as there is an autonomous driving mobile vending machine.
Other popular activities include picnic day camping and boating.
If you are a thrill seeker, perhaps you could try the theme park - Chaoyang International Spring Carnival (extra charges apply)

Chaoyang Park, being so large, has several entrances, but visitor will like find its West and North gates to be most convenient and easily accessible by train, bus, taxi, or car.

Entrance fee, as with most public parks, is 5 RMB or so; kids under 1.2 meters tall do not need to pay for a ticket.

Chaoyang park is mostly for strolling, but they do have a few spots with rides and rentals.

For the carnival rides, you can purchase tickets for the rides at a nearby kiosk. Though the staff does not usually speak English, you can point at the ride you want to visit, and they'll get you squared away. I can't say I recommend the rides, as we didn't have a positive experience on the three we tried, and you are riding at your own risk. Don't expect the same rigid safety standards of a theme park here. The park is usually quite serene, but not the cleanest place (especially the pond).

You can rent bikes or golf carts by half hour increments, but they will require a hefty security deposit, and all of it is cash only.

You can also rent paddle boats or tickets to take a ride around the water.

We enjoy going to the park to fly kites, let kids run around or spend time on their scooters, and picnicking.

On a good weather day, it's a lovely place to spend an hour in, and then grab a snack or a meal somewhere in Solana (north entrance), or along the strip of restaurants on south Chaoyang park road (exit west entrance, and go left).

The park has public restrooms, and some vendors for bottled water and snacks, but I recommend you stock up before hand and bring your own.

I would not take a detour to come here if you have not yet been to the Summer Palace, Tiantan, or Houhai/Beihai area, which are much more crowded, but also more scenic.

Chaoyang Park is a good place to escape from the city, at least for a few hours. Even on a very busy spring day, we still found a few quiet & peaceful places. There is an entrance fee to the park, which I believe was 5 RMB.

My wife really wanted to rent a four-wheel bike, which come in 2-person & 5-person sizes. The 2-person was 60 RMB per hour.

There is a kids play land in the park with many kid & family friendly rides. A place where we will definitely take our son once he is a little bit older.

All in all it is a decent city park.

We spent almost a day in the park as there is a wide variety of things to do. We enjoyed a ride in a boat (around 50-70 RMB) and also had an hour on the 5 seater bike (80 RMB). The ropes course looked fun but expensive, and the little kiddie rides weren't cheap, but it was quite fun to roam among the amusements to watch toddlers fishing for goldfish & feeding koi with babies' bottles. Our favourite area was the Sony Explorascience centre. This is quite small, focusing largely on vision and sound but had some unique experiences, particularly fun for kids and worth the 60 RMB we paid for our family of 4. Be prepared, it is a big park to walk around and quite a distance from the nearest metro station.

An urban treat, found adjacent to the CBD, Chaoyang Park offers a myriad of leisure activities.

I found a meandering running track that traversed the park, past were others were practicing Tai Chi, playing badminton, fishing, walking, or playing traditional flutes.

I went there twice in late winter and in fall. Both times the park had its own charms; though, I actually prefer the fall ambience Unlike Yuyuantan, this one doesnt have many flowers but tall trees. You can rent bicycles and pedal boats. Honestly there's nothing so spectacle about the park. It's just a hugh park but after living in the crowded city called Beijing for a while, I go to this park to relax and enjoy the cool breeze. In winter when the park is almost empty, it's very peaceful to spend the whole afternoon there.
