Chaoyang Park is a park located on the site of the former Prince's Palace in Beijing's Chaoyang District. The park's construction began in 1984 and it became Beijing's largest park. The majority of land in the park is used as green space.
It features flower gardens, fairground with rides, including a roller coaster, landscaped areas and several large swimming pools. Bicycles and boats may also be hired at various locations in the park.
Since 2005, the Beijing Pop Festival, featuring Chinese and international musical acts, has been held at Chaoyang Park each September. A temporary beach volleyball stadium was constructed at Chaoyang Park to host the beach volleyball events of the 2008 Summer Olympics, using sand shipped in from Hainan island.
