LongTan Park 龙潭公园, BeiJing 北京

Longtan Park is located about 1.5 km east of the Temple of Heaven.


Next to the west side of Longtan Park is the Beijing Amusement Park that features a ferris wheel and other rides.


LongTan ('Dragon Pond') Park features the large Dragon Lake, with 'moon bridges', weeping willows, rock gardens, dragon boats, tea houses and restaurant, winding jogging track, exercise areas and play areas for children. There is also a beautifully curving pavilion with a dragon roof and pillars decorated with golden spiralled dragons. Indeed, the dragon motif is featured in many places throughout Longtan Park.


This is a prime site for the Lantern Festival in Beijing when the whole park is illuminated with large colorful lanterns.
