“Lots of plants, old trees.. Historic buildings”
Review of Zhongshan Park

Compared to the Forbidden City itself - Zhongshan park is not crowded at all. We had a nice walk there, lots of pictures, flower statues. This was the Emperor Garden back then.. The trees are very old. There are some historic halls there as well. All in all, quite a pleasant day. Try to wear comfy shoes. My feet were in pain after walking.

Zhongshan park is one of my favourite par in Beijing. Main gate locate just west from Forbidden city main gate. Park is relatively big and have some nice ponds, hills etc. There you can always find quiet corner, sit down and relax. I truly recommend that place.

What a delightful place, while wondering around the very busy area of the Forbidden Palace, we stumbled into here. Not many people at all and just really pretty and peaceful.

We went here with our young daughter (20 months old) before a planned trip into the Forbidden City and ended up staying in the park the whole time. She had a great time exploring all the pathways, and we found it very relaxing. The only negative was the school groups, but if you could avoid them it was relatively quiet. That wasn't always easy because they seemed to be curious about the foreign baby and would follow us around.
There were snacks available for sale, but nothing more substantial than instant noodles and peanuts so don't plan to have lunch there.
There is an entrance fee but it's just 3 RMB. Totally worth it in my opinion.

Zhongshan Park is a park within the area of the Forbidden City. At a price of 3RMB, it is very cheap (compared to Jingshen Park which is 10RMB - also quite cheap). The atmosphere itself is relaxed, and it provides a respite from the chaotic, noisy scene in the main part of the Forbidden City.
Despite its serenity, I found the park a little boring and lacking of any special features. I would recommend skipping Zhongshan Park and going to the Jingshen Park instead (which is located right across the street as you exit the Forbidden City). See my review of Jingshen Park for more details.
