“Half day away from city center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The forest park is good for those who working in Beijing for a break from city center. I enjoyed the walk around the park... the park also good for holding events or group activities, a good place for team building in the park.

“Great walks in a huge park area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

The besutiful area is very large and would take all day to see completely. 3 km circuit of the lake completed in about 2 hours. Most of the lake frozen but some streams kept parts of the lake ice free and full of waterfowl. Cold day and not many people about; learnt that some like to stroll playing loud Chinese music - for who's benefit I wonder? There are different habitats within the park and look forward to a return in better weather. Smog was bad that day but not impossible. well worth a visit for exercise and pleasure, but not frsh air regretably.

“Great place to run around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

I have been staying in an hotel near the Olympic Stadium so it was a pleasure to run up the pedestrianised road to the Forest Park and then follow the track around its southern and northern perimeters which is 10km in length. The track is very clearly signposted (although I did miss the turning to cross the ringroad), flat and with markers every half kilometre saying how far you have got. There were also plenty of other people around despite it being about 7.15am on a fairly cool and misty morning. There are other tracks of 3km and 5km in length. To be honest, I suspect the perimeter route is not actually the best way to see the park as I suspect the prettiest parts are within it, not around its border. However, as a running track it is excellent and gave me the exercise and fresh air I needed.

“Good park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

A great place to walk and run. Great road and paths and nice plants by the side. A fair amount of other people, but not packed. Clean and flat.

“A Quiet Side of the City”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

If you're tied of the noise of the city, I recommend you to Olymic Forest Park. Most of the visitors in Beijing perfer to visit the ancient palces and temples, but neglect the natural side of the city. It's few people there. Good place to relax. And it's a huge park, also good for hiking and running. Some modern scultures there are intreseting.
