HUGE park with lots of activities-singing, dancing, sport. There are wonderful views- very scenic! Take the boat ride on the water--it is really lovely!

After struggling for more than an hour or two in Gu Gong, this park really hit the spot. Strolling around the park is very relaxing, as is renting a boat and chilling on the lake. It's popular with the locals but it definitely is not some crazy and crowded place like the Forbidden City. There is some really nice scenery... More

We visited the park two times, each time it was way to crowded! You could hardly walk, people were yelling, cars tried to pass. .. Not a nice place! Altough it's beautiful, it's spoiled by to many visitors!

The lake is a wonder. I've heard a theory that says that the builders dug out the lake and piled it up to form the jingshan park. Whether or not that's true, it is a massive man made lake. Lots of boats in the lake and nice lotus flowers down south-east.

Excellent place to spend an afternoon with your childs. You can rent a boat (with electric engine or moved by your feet) and sale in the lake. Difficult to arrive if you need a taxi, a lot of traffic around there...

This is one of the best urban parks in China. I have visited it in all seasons and enjoyed watching the residents and visitors. There is always something going on - exercises, choirs, groups of elders or children just having a great time in the pleasant surrounds. The park is easily accessible to those with any disabilities via the circular... More

This is a huge outdoor park in the middle of the city. It is a park to walk around, visit an old temple and with a lake big enough to rent a boat. I would recommend this park for a good weather day when you just want to relax and unwind. If you want to enjoy the entire experience you... More

The Beihai Park in Beijing has the best views in this area. Take our time to walk around the park and listen to the locals who love to sing traditional Chinese songs. They are magnificient.
