It's a beautiful park. I wouldn't go out your way to see it but it does hold the "Temple of the Sun" and other interesting little features. ( ie, Pond, lillie pads, rock climbing wall). There's also a beautiful mural. Walked from our hotel about 15-20 minutes just to stretch the legs a bit. If I was a local, I... More

Walked into this park on chance during a morning adventure walk. Was not disappointed as we were able to see Beijingers on a typical day. Nestled in the middle of a bustling residential district. It was a pleasant distraction.

I walked to the Park from the JW Marriott to work off some of the Jet Lag, roughly 45mins. Be careful crossing the streets as the electric scooters are notorious for even heading against traffic to get to their destination. The park is nicely signed and finding the various sites is easy. The highlight for me was the mosaic of... More

I wouldn't recommend this park for tourists--since there are plenty of other tourist spots in Beijing worth spending your time with. But I do like this park as a resident living in this city. It's not as busy as some other parks. And it's always look different all year round. It's a very friendly community park if you live not... More

Visited to stretch our legs. No scooters allowed so it is great for families with children. Beautiful landscaping and water areas. A great place to relax. Lots of shade too.

Great place if you're looking for a more local experience. The park is free and has stunning views of the city. Nice for walks all year round, worth a visit!

I used to work around the corner from this delightful park, it is a medium sized park and a good way to experience local Beijingers just hanging out and "doing their thing"!

What a beautiful place to get away from the traffic, people and noise. Pleasant afternoon just walking around. Sun shinning and CLEAR BLUE sky. People dancing, singing, playing mahjong. The lake was full of water lillies about to burst out. Great place to take children, elderly. No bike allowed which is great. No charge for entry.

What a great place to go to get away from the rat race. We were staying in the nearby New Otani Hotel so it was a great relief to go here on a day off from touring and sightseeing. Love the lake!
