The Pagoda at the top of the man made mountain is one of hte highest points immediately north of the Forbidden City so you can see the entire city. Also in the spring the park has great peonei gardens... More

The lines to buy tickets to the Palace Museum were very long and we didn't want to wait so we headed next door to Zhongshan Park and enjoyed our afternoon not having to battle the crowds. Admission was nominal - about 50 cents. The tulips were just starting to come up which made it even nicer. We paid another small... More

Since it is right by the Forbidden City it is easy to visit but not that interesting. The tulip displays were very modest. The flowering trees were decent but not outstanding. There are fare better parks to spend your time in.

Named after Sun Zhongshan (Sun Yatsen) this peaceful and tranquil park is at the southwest corner of the Forbidden City. It looks out onto the Palace's moat and towering walls. A nice place to relax and people watch.

The place has a nice garden with flowers and all-and its highlight is definitely the hill with great view to forbidden city and rest of Beijing. It's a bit disappointing that you can't sit in the grass anywhere... and all facilities are the sort of disappointing beijing standard. Nice for tourists going to forbidden city

This is a lovely and tranquil park near the Forbidden city. It provides a nice view of the area and some tranquility, which is so rare in the hectic streets of Beijing.

We happened to visit it as most of the places we wanted to visit were shut. We went during the evening and heard a few Chinese opera singers singing while some others danced along. Guess they were all from China itself and all left together as though on a tour.

This beautiful and full of locals is at its best during the spring, with the tulips and cherry blossoms, as well as peony flowers. Locals spend hours there playing cards, music, singing....very interesting local culture. And beautiful views on the forbidden city walls by the canal.

A nice and calm park in the heart of Beijing which is a reaxing contrast to the the busy Tiananmen Place and the Forbidden City. Most important: If you visit the park first, prior to going to the Forbidden City, you'll get out on the other side of the forecourt where you can buy the tickets. There are 20 box... More
