Beautiful park

Nice park to take a walk and see local people doing all kinds of crazy sports. Not too many things to do anyway, so didn't spend more than an hour here.

Beautiful park to walk round. Lots of local people dancing, exercising, singing etc. If you want to see how the locals live then I'd highly recommend and it's one of the more pretty and less touristy/busy parks in Beijing.

Once The Temple of the Sun and now a scenic park, this is an ideal place to hang out and observe the locals practicing tai-chi, sword-play, dancing or martial art. There is also a climbing wall and children's amusement park. There are a couple of cafes surrounding the park where you can stop for a cup of coffee. Toilets here... More

This park is located in heart of old Beijing, it was once the grounds of an important ancient temple. Today it is a lively place where people of all ages come to meet. Early morning is active with many many groups meeting to practise all of the traditional martial arts, as a ritual beginning of the day. The walkway around... More

This is a Temple-kind park, but its not a temple any longer. This place is ideal for a stroll. The entrance is free, the toilets are clean. You can buy drinks from vending machines if you are thirsty while you're walking.

One of the lovely parks in Beijing. Has a climbing wall, adult exercise section, grotto, children's amusement park. The grotto is very nice and worth checking out while at the park. The amusement park is quite expensive. You pay per ride so it really adds up.

Lovely, free public park ideal for strolling and relaxing. We visited in December on a sunny 10 degree day and enjoyed our walk around the perimeter and through the middle of the park. Seems it would be a very active place during the day and early evening in warmer weather. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by. If you walk... More

We stopped by Ritan Park after visiting the Silk Market. We thought it would be just “another park”, but were surprised to see a very vibrant place that is kept in beautiful shape and packed with lots of people. We saw people playing a flute, practicing t’ai chi, working out, and just enjoying the scenery. There was a lot of... More
