Beihhai Park, Jingshan Park and Zhongshan Park are my favorite Beijing parks. Beihai has so much to offer including a wonderful hidden garden are on the east side of the lake. The scenery is gorgeous as are the old buildings.

Like many of the old gardens in Beijing it is very peaceful but the locals are encouraged to enjoy it as do the tourists. Very old trees and rock formations plus gates which you can pass through. There is a long verandah where some of the senior citizens sit and knit, play card plus domino's and generally socialise. It is... More

Really fun to see the local gardens, but more fascinating to watch the locals enjoy the outdoors and the parks and interact with the tourists

This park is located next to the Jingshan park so you can visit the two parks one after the other. There are lots of pussy willow trees along the lake and the sights are very soothing and relaxing.

You can see scenic views, some nature, and beautiful architecture in Beihai Park. Definitely go to Jingshan Park in the same visit. Bring snacks and water. Visited in March 2014.

I went to Beijing on business in May 2016. Beihai Park is one of three parks located in a row - Jingshan Park, Beihai Park and Hou Hai. Beihai Park is a lake with surrounding paths.
