Description

Zizhuyuan Park, also known as the Purple Bamboo Park, was built in 1953. The name of the park originated from the temple built in the Ming and Qing Dynasties on southwest in the park. “Fu Yin Zi Zhu Yuan” means good luck will always be with the park in Chinese. The park covers an area of 47.35 hectares, of which one third is water area. The park is famous for its natural scenery featuring bamboos. Located on west to Baishi Bridge outside the Xizhimen, the park has opened for public for free since July 2006.
 
The designs and arrangements of all the scenes in this park follow the principle of “what is natural is the most beautiful”. Stones and manmade rockeries are scattered artistically while pavilions, corridors and rooms stand in graceful disorder with flowers and trees as enchanting decorations among them. Every place presents a picture-like beauty that you can enjoy all the year round.
