It is both restful and interesting. People were playing music, singing, dancing, exercising. Lovely flowers displays line the walkways. Artistic rock displays rival the best in Guilin Park in Shanghai. We go there every time we are in Beijing.

It was alright, but for some reason I didn't like it as much as the other parks I've visited in Beijing. I would recommend Ditan park over this (though Ritan is free, which is nice)

I went to this park in the early evening and it was great to watch some of the other people using the park. There was a couple of groups performing traditional dance for example. If you are with family, there is lots to do with a play park etc for little ones and a tennis court and fitness equipment for older children/adults.

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.

This park is less famous amongst Beijing tourists but we’ve lived here for years and are always amazed by this hidden gem! From gentle locals who allow you to get a glimpse of their daily life to the beautiful garden, our family loves this park! Our girls always love running around and playing in the exercise area. Grab a book and a coffee and just choose your bench to take a break!

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.

Ritan Park is often overlooked in favour of the better known parks like temple of heaven. But of you want to see some real gems of Chinese life, lunchtime walking in Ritan Park is a must. You will see tai qi, opera singers, dancing. There is a climbing wall open in the summer months, ping-pong tables and a grown ups out door gym. The trees offer good shade. In the autumn the leaves of the many ginkgo trees turn a beautiful yellow which is really stunning. There is also a nice restaurant in the centre of the park

My Russian friend took me here and we spend more than a hour and still had things to explore. We were catching up and such a good feeling of colours, fresh air ,local people watching.There were a good number of old locals who were chatting and having a great time . That was the best view !

Walked to it after visiting Dongyue Temple, through the grand arch opposite the temple (see picture). Spotted a number of Russians, Russian, Turkish and other countries' restaurants on the way. Beijing dwellers are fortunate to have access to such historic, huge parks with great facilities. Watched the locals play, jog, walk, and meet at this beautiful park. Highly recommend visiting it.
