How to get there:

Located one kilometer east of the Temple of Heaven, Longtan Park is quite central, accessible via the No. 6, 26, 60 and 807 bus routes.

Longtan Park (Dragon Pool Park), with its 118 hectares of cypresses, willows and pagoda trees, and 3,700 meters of zig-zagging lakeshore, is one of the Beijing's most popular parks.

The 330,000 square-meter lake is bisected by a series of stone arched bridges connecting four small islands that can be reached via boat.

Other scenic spots in the park include Longyinge, Longtan and Longmen, while Longtan Park annually hosts a Spring Festival Temple Fair and the occasional Dragon Boat Race.
