  • The park is huge. The park is not my style since I lived in this big park after the Munich spirit. The staff were very nice. It was great to see the lake.

  • A beautiful park in Beijing. Really worth a visit if you are missing green spaces and would appreciate some nature.  more »

  • A breathtakingly beautiful place at sunset and a stroll around was one of the highlights of my trip to Beijing. There were a substantial amount of tourists taking photos, so it can be difficult to take a good shot with your camera at these peak times. Perhaps sunrise would be quieter and a good opportunity for an iconic photo. There were some little paddlers I saw chained up at the waters edge which I assume can be used during sunny days. Well worth stopping by if you are a tourist in Beijing.
  • Wow. Amazing to skate on the frozen lake. And so pretty during winter.
