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.

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

This is a 10 minute walk from the Silk Market, so worth it if you have an hour spare. It is not the prettiest of parks ever, but there is a small lake and some historical monuments. Entry is free. Name in Chinese:日坛公园(Ritan Gongyuan)

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.

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.
