Longtan Park Tourism photo copyrighted by: BeijingChinaWorld
Longtan (dragon pool) Park can be found directly east of the Temple of Heaven
in the Chongwen district. The west side of Longtan Park has been converted into
an amusement park with many modern rides.
Traditionalists may prefer a stroll around the banks of the lake where there is an
outdoor bird market. Hundreds of people come to buy or look at the numerous
birds in the little stalls run by traders. There is also a pavilion and bridge built in the traditional Chinese style. Being the
theme of the park, Dragons can be found carved in more than 100 trees scattered
around the site.
