Located in Southeast Beijing's Tongzhou District, the canal park covers a total area of 368 square meters. The canal runs roughly 1,770 km, and is the oldest and longest man made canal in China. Starting from Beijing, the Grand Canal passes through Tianjin, Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the city of Hangzhou.

The forest park is an ideal getaway for Beijing families to spend a day, strolling among the greens, breathing some fresh air, and checking out the great variety of plants and birds.
