In March there were big construction/renovation projects going on so it little bit lowered the photogenic feeling. Nor there were leaves on the trees or flowers. It must be a great place to visit in summer time, but in March it is not a must see place. Easy to access with the subway.

we walked to the park from our hotel in the Western side of Beijing, which was about a 2.5 mile walk each way. it was a beautiful Sunday, actually Mother's Day and we saw so many people dancing and having fun in the park. Everyone was so friendly even though we were clearly the only Westerners in the park, they... More

It's a 200m walk (5 min) from exit D of the National Library metro station on line 4 or 9. The park is large so it's a long walk around the lake, but the landscape is very beautiful. A lot of walkers and runners use the main path. You can find less traveled side paths through the bamboo forests. It's... More

This is another green oasis in Beijing with so many different things to do. It's full of people dancing, doing martial arts, walking, etc. A great place to people watch and just walk about watching Chinese tradition. There is a small (old) funfair for younger children. We took a duck boat out onto the lake which was fun.

This park is free which is always a bonus, very pretty, it was nice to have a stroll round. Going on the boats looked particularly fun and good for children as some had water pistols on, although we didn't do this ourselves. It seemed like lots of locals were there and it was interesting to see them doing their excercises... More

We went to this park on a Saturday, expecting tons of people, and, yet, it was lovely and not so crowded! The entrance is free, but you do need to pay for parking if you come with a car. It was entertainingly good to walk around the park; many locals were dancing, singing, playing chess, some even feeding pigeons and... More

We stumbled onto this place while looking for the "animal market" which was reported to be NE of Zizhuyuan Qiao near Xisanhuan (W 3rd ring road). Admission was free but it looks as if that may change as there were gates and ticket booths at the multiple entrances (or maybe they used to charge an admission fee). The park has... More

Going to this park is very easy: take Line 4 to National Library, then exit D and continue for about 100 meters and it's right there on the right. It's a rather large, well kept park, with many different kinds of bamboos for sure, lakes where one can rent a boat, an amusement place for small children. But what is... More
