Thanks to a disagreement between locals and foreign botanists, Black Bamboo Park is known as Purple Bamboo Park (Zizhuyuan) in Chinese. But whatever its name, this is a lovely alternative to the more popular and touristy parks in the city, even in winter. Pair it up with a visit to the nearby Wanshou Temple (6842 3565), which contains Beijing Art Museum, for a relaxing day out.
