Introduction

Chaoyang Park is the largest urban park within the Fourth Ring Road. The first park to be built on the site was built in 1984 and was originally called ‘Shuiduizi Park’, and was only changed to ‘Chaoyang Park’ in 1992. The total area of Chaoyang Park is 288.7 hectares, which includes 68.2 hectares covered by water.

There are forests, playground, and art square that placed within the park. There are also two large outdoor swimming pools, a 75-meter bungee jumping tower over one of the lakes, boating, sports areas, a wetland area, a fun fair and musical fountains. There is a yearly Beijing Pop Festival held here and the park hosted the Beijing Olympics beach volleyball competition in August 2008. A large observation wheel called the Beijing Great Wheel is currently under construction. It is expected that when this opens (scheduled for 2010) the Great Wall will be visible on clear days.
