On Sundays particularly this park is full of community activities. You are welcome to join in if you wish. There are community singing groups (You need Mandarin for that, but sheets with the words are provided). There are other musical groups, dancing groups, usually made up of those who know what they are doing and those who are learning.Some excellent musical performers can be heard, and a woman from the Peking opera may sing for you. These activities are common in Beijing parks; another which is good to visit is Yuyuantan Park which is just North of the Milleniun Monument, on Chang'an West. It has two adjoining lakes, with boats to hire and more simple games people play, with the experts happy to teach the beginners. It also has kite flyers.
