Though Chaoyang Park (朝阳公园; Cháoyáng Gōngyuán) probably isn’t the nicest park you can find in Beijing, it is the biggest one and there are a number of features and key attractions that would make this park a perfect weekend getaway for families.

 

There are small hands-on museums, a medium size amusement park, lots of kiddie attractions, an artificial beach, swimming pools, concert stages, sports areas, boating and car rental options, and lots of lakes and small gardens. Just walking the park from one end to the other would take you an hour and a half, and you could easily spend half a day wondering around. Even with all that going on, it’s surprisingly quiet and laid back with lots of rest spots for you to take a long rest.

 

Here’s a bit of what you can expect to see…
