A lovely park near the 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

Zhongshan Park is our preferred place for a daily stroll as it is one of Beijing's few remaining historical parks with very ancient trees, multiple itineraries, a unique location next to the Forbidden City, Jingshan hill and Beihai Park. The park hosts yearly flower exhibitions each spring and is almost never crowded with tourists.

THis park has the only hill (and it was artificially made). If you want to get a nice view of Beijing and the Forbidden city, climb the hill.

We were going to The National Center For Performing Art to watch a show, yet we went there too early. So we walked to Tiananmen Square to kill time. Then we found that there's a park behind the Square and changed our direction immediately. There were few people in the park. Compared to Tiananmen Square, it's a quiet place and... More

Nothing special, just a park but definitely a welcome break from the crowds and the heat. Worth a stroll and a sit down before rejoining the chaos outside.

This park is very close to Prohibited city and the ticket costs only a few ruans. There are some well preserved facilities with explanation in English. Bathrooms are clean and not crowded what is something that a tired tourist can appreciated.
