Ming City Walls Ruins Park is located in near the centre of the city. Built 580 years ago, it was once 40km long. The remaining relic, which is about 1.5 kilometers long, used to be part of the inner city wall of Beijing. It is the longest section of the city wall remains in the city, and an important symbol of Beijing.
The design of the park aims at classical simplicity, with over 70,000 square meters of lawns, 110,000 flowers, over 400 large arbors such as Chinese pines and Chinese scholar trees, and over 6,000 shrubs. Pipelines of 28,000 meters have been installed; lighting devices have been installed for the wall, lawns, over 10,000 square meters of roads, paths, and corridors, and the square. Several sights of interest with themes reflecting the appearances of the wall relic and special qualities of landscaping, such as Old Trees and Ming Walls, Stroll among Broken Walls and New Charm of Ancient Tower, have been designated to fully display the cultural and historical elements of the Ming city wall.
