“closest sand & water combo, depending on where you live in the city is within a 5 to 20mn ride or a 2 mn walk from the Hou Jia Lou subway station on line 10… yup, it’s there and I got the pictures to prove it … This little gem hides inside Tuan Jie Hu park, across from Oakwood center off of the 3rd ring road in Beijing. This inconspicuous little gates on the outside hide a marvel of a park complete with lakes, boats, bumper cars, skating ring and more importantly, an artificial wave pool with real sand!”
We popped in ourselves last Saturday with tots in tow, but were deterred by the rain and freezing water. Nevertheless, Tuanjiehu Park is indeed one of the most accessible and family friendly water parks in the greater Sanlitun/CBD area.
