Introduction

Yuyuantan Park lies in Haidian District and is not far from CCTV Tower and the China Millennium Monument. The park is 1820-meters wide and 1106 meters long, occupying 136.69 hectares with 61 hectares of that water. Yuyuantan Park is a tourist draw from April through to early May every year as it has beautiful cherry blossoms. There are around 199,500 plants including about 2000 cherry trees of over 20 different species, many of which were gifts from Japan when the two countries re-opened diplomatic ties in the 1970s. Other blossoming trees such as peach are also found, as well as tulip flowers. The park hosts an annual cherry blossom festival in April. The lake is also popular for boating, and it is possible to get a boat from here to the Summer Palace. A swimming area and cafes are also located within the park.
