While I would not go out of my way to visit this park, I did enjoy walking through it and seeing all the activities. I recommend that you do the same if you are in neighborhood.

It was a super nice day in Beijing and we cycled around and this was the closest park from where we were. Very pretty, lots of nice photo spots. Definitely recommend for when in the area. Not crowded like other parks.
