Chaoyang Park (Cháoyáng gôngyuán)

Chaoyang Park (Cháoyáng gôngyuán) Review

The sprawling, modern Chaoyang Park lacks the imperial aura that marks other Beijing parks, but offers quite a bit in terms of recreation. About one-fourth of the park is water, and so boating of various kinds is available here, primarily pedal-powered paddleboats. There's a swimming pool with an artificial beach, tennis courts, beach volleyball grounds, a gymnasium, and a small amusement park. You can hire a slow-going electromobile for easy mobility around this sprawling park on your own, or hail a ride on a group trolley. There are many snack stands serving simple dishes, but if you're looking for something more substantive, walk around to the west gate of the park where you'll find a street lined with popular Western and Chinese eateries, or check out the Solana mall at the northwest corner of the park.
