Olympic Park was built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics and Paralympic Games. Home to the Bird's Nest and the Water Cube in addition to other venues used for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. There are occasional trees marking the long extending paved walkways and a canal that runs through the park. Lights go up from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Accessible by public transportation. It's beautiful at night. Now that the olympics is over, in the evenings the water cube has a really good water & light show played to a live orchestra. It's sort of like the Bellagio show in vegas but much more intense, well worth seeing.
