However, in Ming Dynasty, the city wall of had been moved slightly to the south and thus, this area was circled within the area of Beijing city. In year 1901, the park had been listed within the area of embassy and soon became the training site for the armies of foreign countries. Moreover it had been used as the temporary airport in year 1948 as well. Finally in year 1955, the area was approved to be opened as Dongdan Park which it remains until today.
