The Ming City Walls Relics Park is one of the best parks in Beijing. The Ming City Walls Relics Park is one of the best parks in Beijing. The Ming City Walls Relics Park is located 3 kilometers from the center of the city, between the southeast turret and Chongwen Gate in the west. The Ming City Walls Relics Park is a scenic spot of ancient architectural relic. It was open to the public in 2002.

The Ming City Wall, first built over 580 years ago, in 1419, or the 17th year of Emperor Yongle 's reign in the Ming Dynasty, used to run about 40 kilometers. The remaining relic, which is about 1.5 kilometers long, used to be part of the inner city wall of Beijing. The Ming City Walls Relics Park is the longest section of the city wall remains in the city, and an important symbol of Beijing. Topped with saplings, trees and a healthy head of vegetation, the last surviving slice of the Ming Inner City Wall (originally 40km in length) runs along the length of the northern flank of Chongwenmen Dongdajie , attached to a slender and pleasant strip of park. Leveled in the 1950s to facilitate transport and compromise the legacies of earlier dynasties, the city wall is perhaps Beijing's most conspicuous chunk of lost heritage.
