Zhongshan Park (中山公園), is a lovely little park just off of the Forbidden City in Beijing that used to serve as the imperial gardens. Now a public park, it offers the visitors some peace and tranquility with lots of gardens, flowers, pavilions and trees with the surrounding architecture of the Forbidden City.

After the Chinese revolution and the rise of Sun Yat Sen’s republic the park was renamed after him, as many other parks in China and Taiwan.

The best thing about this park is the entrance fee – so many people don’t go inside because of the entrance fee so it helps one escapes from the mad summer crowds outside the forbidden city. You are right, it is a beautiful park. We enjoyed spending time there two years ago. Nice pictures of the park.
