Fabulous park and gardens, quiet and peaceful away from the traffic, noise and hustle and bustle of everyday life in Beijing. Lots to see and do, gardens, temples, locals singing and dancing or you can just walk round enjoying the tranquillity.

Was excellent but first week of october, so very crowded. Water lillies were gone, but the gates, bridges, weeping willow trees and the white dagoba were magnificent. Lots of walking too around the lake. Walkong distance of jingshan park, bell and drum tower.

This place is just wonderful to walk around especially when the lotus flowers are out. You can easily spend a few hours here and lots of photos.
