Chongwenmen station Exit B. Walk across the street and walk a couple of hundred metres.
The wall section is over 1 km long, beautiful park is along the wall. After 1+ kms, you will come to the SE corner tower, where an old gate entrance cut into the wall many years ago.
10RMB to get into the tower, worth the visit just to walk along the wall and get into the tower. One side has the park, on the other side of the wall is the train tracks.
If you like history, you have to go.

This park ( free of charge)in my opinion, is one of the most valuable sights in Beijing. Located at Chongwen men,with near 2 square metre walls left from Ming dynasty. Every brick stands here for such a long time that it is clearly not a fake thing to compare.Here you can walk and see thousand year old trees stand by the wall,and also,you can choose to pay CNY2 to climb onto the blocks of the old town of beijing ,which is the largest one . On March ,flowers blooming here ,all pink and green.

I came across this site accidentally, having never heard of the Ming City Wall, and I was so glad I did. The site as it is today is very well set out with explanatory signs as you walk through the parkland following the 'ruins' of another architectural feat of the early Chinese. It was originally an immense structure consisting of towers /buttresses and the wall itself, built to protect the city. There are great pathways and gardens and the area is well used by locals exercising or having catchups, especially bird enthusiasts it seemed.You can climb onto/up the wall but viewing from ground level gave a good perspective. Excellent, peaceful haven very easily accessible, not crowded yet close to town. So glad I came across it.

Three minutes walk from the Chongwenmen Station. Four minutes from the hotel I stayed in (Xinqiao Novotel).

The park highlights the beauty of the remains of the Ming Dynasty city wall, including the Relics of the city wall and a Corner Tower.

It is gorgeous to take a walk in the Park in the early morning of a spring day. Mused over the ancient times and thought of the remote past.

Park is near the Beijing Railway Station and adjacent to the hotel I stayed. Beautifully well-maintained grounds. Very peaceful, especially considering you're right near the highway. The watchtower is at the end of the park and only cost 10yuan to visit. The park runs along the remaining section on the old city wall. Not much to see and wouldn't recommend a special trip to the area but if you're staying nearby its worth a visit.

This place is a nice escape from the city. You'll see some remnants from the Ming city walls. The place is very nice to spend a lazy afternoon and do a lot of people watching.

You could also come here jogging.

Very beautiful during the night. It isn't that necessary to purposely come here but if you live or work here this is something you should see.

Summary-
Don't need to go out of your way to see this you'll see a lot of Ming remnants while you're in Beijing!

This is also called Ming Dynasty City Wall Relics Park. I'd seen this area earlier from a bus and decided to try to spend some time there. Unfortunately I didn't arrive until about 4pm. The whole area is pleasant and relaxing. In February the trees were still wrapped up to protect them from the cold. There's a fascinating art gallery accessed from up on the wall. Like DerringW33 I would have liked more information in English. I was there until they were closing the doors & was the last one inside. It was free, but maybe that's because it was late in the day. It's one of many places in Beijing I'd like to return to.

I have seen photos of Beijing's famous 'gates', so I was wondering where the old fortifications had gone. The historic wall previously circled the entire city, but it is no longer exists according to my research. When I found that the city of Beijing had rebuilt a portion of the historic earthworks, I wanted to see for myself. It runs for about 1 mile starting at Chongwenmen Station (south of the Beijing Railway Station). After walking down the mall, I paid 10 $CNY to gain access to the Guard Tower. It's ok from the top, but I enjoyed the stroll down to the entrance. I had the place to myself (I guess it's not for everyone). There were trees and benches along the way with lots of places to stop and chill out in the summer sun. After seeing this, I found myself trying to find a way to visit some of the old towns where the original walls still exist. Unfortunately, this is as close as I will get this trip. If you have already visited the usual spots - hutongs, lama temple, ghost street, bell tower & shopping district, you might find this to be a welcome break from the crowds.

Like others we discovered this by accident on a walk from our hotel (Novotel). We started following it one day and found it impressive and well landscaped. Along the way you will see some amazing little panels and photos of the historic buildings that used to be there before they were demolished. The wall park ends in the museum Arrow tower which is itself impressive. Along the way you pass the old railway signal station now in the middle of the park (including toilets). The museum is worthwhile and quiet *(unusual for Beijing), inside on the second floor be sure to see the dioramas and photos of all the old gates and building that were once in the area before being demolished in the sixties. AS others have said, not a major attraction but if you are nearby it's definitely worth a visit ! Our kids loved it!

Walk here and feel a sense of history and escape. The view is nice, the trees and sitting spaces just outside the walls give you chance to rest and take it all in.
