Olympic Forest Park (South Gate), Beijing

4.5
#17 of 164 in Parks in Beijing
Nature / Park
Constructed ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and covering 680 hectares (1,680 acres), Olympic Forest Park (South Gate) offers an abundance of walking and jogging routes and a lake containing small islands which are linked by bridges. A few small carnival-style rides entertain young children, and the man-made hill in the north corner of the park offers views of the lake to the south (said to be a great example of Feng Shui design). The park becomes particularly busy around weekends and holidays, so either join the crowds and start exploring, or head here for sunset or during the week for a more tranquil experience.

Where to stay in Beijing

Beijing offers accommodations to suit the needs of every traveler, with clean, affordable hostels open to foreign backpackers, practical mid-range hotels for the business trip and group tour, and luxury four- and five-star hotels available at reasonable prices.

  • This Park was huge, so I was tired by the end of it! I really like the scenery during the fall when I went. But there wasn't much to it but mainly forest and gardens.  more »

  • It's very well manicured, but it's mostly just paved walking paths and only one lawn that you're not necessarily allowed to walk on.
  • 佔地非常大的奧林匹克公園,有遊園腳踏車可租借,繞行一圈加上休息踹口氣約一個半小時,而且為傲的龍型水系從體育場至公園沿線,值得邊走邊看其規劃的內容。
  • Beautiful park. You can go ahead and relax
