Changpuhe is also called Waijinshuihe, a pretty, renovated river park lying east of the Forbidden City. It was neglected and, for a long time, lay hidden beneath stone slabs and warehouses.
The renovations transformed this part of Beijing into a prime recreational spectacle. Beautiful flower gardens and a teeming river of goldfish are among its main attractions. There are also courtyard-style restaurants and modern amenities.
The park is always open and one of the loveliest outdoors places in the city.
