Map of the park
Zhongshan Park entrance and gateway just inside park
I first wander down the paths, admiring the architecture and landscaping.
Great paths for walking
And courtyards, covered walkways, and gazebos for resting.
And, a lake for relaxing or dining on the shore and amusement park rides.
By the lake and streams
Rides and lighthouse
The park is full of tulips. There is a greenhouse with varieties of tulips presented by the Princess of Holland, but now is the annual tulip festival and they are planted in beds all throughout the park. What a beautiful sight!
I spend a few hours wandering in the park an exit out the side into the courtyard outside the Forbidden City, just above the Tiananmen Gate.
