It is a large park with numbers of trials and lakes. It is quiet and not crowded. It used to be a royal park with many buildings but all were destroyed in the 19th century. It worths to visit. You can simply go directly to the ruin and leave. You can skip the rest of the park if you have a tight itenerary. Entry to the park is 10 yuan. Entry to the ruin is 15 yuan.

Address: Northwest Beijing
Directions: near Beijing University and not far from the Summer Palace.
