Built in 1530, this is one of the oldest parks in Beijing that once served as an altar site where the emperor made sacrificial offerings to the sun god.

Situated in the embassy area just west of the CBD this lovely park literally translates as Temple of the Sun and was a place for ritual sacrifice to the Sun by successive emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties. But fortunately there’s none of that...More

This was especially a people's park. Friends getting together dancing or playing music. Great rock formations with fossils and odd geological shapes.

Ritan Park is a green area in the middle of the highly populated and developed district of Chaoyang. The traditional buildings, lake and superbly maintained landscape are worth a visit.

I didn't have much time and was able to walk to this nice park that is close to my hotel in the Central Business District. Very relaxing with lots of trees and a few neat things to see. I would recommend this if you park.

Ritan is a wonderful park, full of flowers and beautifully kept gardens. Very relaxing oasis in the busy Beijing, with surprisingly few visitors (on a Sunday morning).

Beautiful park around the corner from Eclat Hotel. Enjoyed the escape from busy Beijing. Listen to the. Chinese opera singers, watch the couples practising Chinese dancing or locals performing tai chi. If you are hungry enjoy lunch at the Stone Cafe.

A lovely peaceful park to get away from the hustle and bustle of Beijing city. There is a nice perimeter walk with a lake I the middle to complement the feeling of relaxation. Not overly busy either with plenty of space. For the more adventurous...More
