Garden Landscapes

From 1914, with the opening of Beijing Central Park (Zhongshan Park), other imperial gardens, altars and temples of the former Qing Dynasty also were opened to the public successively. The emerging modern parks changed the traditional urban space structure of Beijing. These garden landscapes create a comfortable, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere for the citizens in the noisy city. Here the civilians can relax themselves, enjoy the nature, receive education, have parties and communications and build their bodies.
