Jingshan Park is a public park covering 23 hectares (57 acres) immediately north of the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. The focal point is the artificial hill Jingshan, literally "Prospect Hill". Formerly a private imperial garden attached to the grounds of the Forbidden City, the grounds were opened to the public in 1928. The park was formally established in 1949. It is listed as a Key State Park and is administratively part of both Xicheng and the Dongcheng districts in downtown Beijing.
