  Beijing Botanical Garden is a national AAAA composite scenic spot, as well as an important base for science education, research and tourism. It is one of the key construction projects in China.

 

  Beijing Botanical Garden is located between the Fragrant Hills Park (also called Xiangshan Park) and Jade Spring Hill (known as Yuquan Hill) in Haidian District. It is 23 kilometers (about 14 miles) far from central Beijing. In 1956, the project (with a planned coverage of 4,000,000 square meters or nearly 1,000 acres) was begun. Now, Beijing Botanical Garden has an open area of 2,000,000 square meters (about 500 acres). It consists of the Plant Exhibition Area, the Scenic Spot and the Historical Resorts, the Scientific Research Area and the Nature Reserve. 10,000 categories of plant with a population of 1.5 million plants are cultivated here, for which this garden has been regarded as the biggest botanical garden in north China so far.
