Beijing – Yuyantan Park (Jade Lake Park)

Located in the Haidan District and about 4km south of Purple Bamboo Park. A good running spot, with about 6km of trails. The park is most famous for its nearly 3,000 cherry blossom trees, which bloom in late March/early April. There are paths along the Yuyuan Pond, with a pretty causeway dividing two sections, and along Bayi Lake. Other park highlights are the Liuchun Garden (especially pretty in spring), and a Pine Forest.

The park is about 1.1 miles from east to west and 0.7 miles from north to south. Water tours can be had from here. There are about 6km of trails. Access: West Gate (near the TV Tower, subway lines 1 or 10) or East Gate (near the Capital Museum, Line 1Muxidi subway stop). Intercontinental Hotel is near the east gate.

  1. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.
