Neighborhood: Dong Cheng District
Overview

The most striking aspect of this park is the hill. It was made from earth dug-up to create the moat around the Forbidden City. Five pavilions stand symmetrically on the hill with the top pavilion offering a magnificent view of the city. This park is also (infamously) known as the place where the last of the Ming Emperors (Chong Zhen) committed suicide. He selected one of the park's locust trees to hang himself from after he killed his family.
