Introduction
Purple Bamboo Park is one of the seven largest parks in Beijing, China. It is located in the Haidian District of northwestern Beijing.

The park consist of three connecting lakes covering over a total area of 48 hectares. The lakes' eastern shores consist of several small hills, and they were formed with the earth dredged from the lakes, to balance the natural hills on the western shores of the lakes. There are five bridges connecting the lakes, islands and hills into a single integrated area. To the north of the lakes the Changhe River flows through.

History & Background
The three major lakes in the park were formed in 1159. 

During Ming Dynasty, the Wanli Emperor built a royal garden on the bank of the lake in 1577, and the bamboo was planted following that. 

In 1954, the park was rebuilt and open to public.

During the 2008 Summer Olympics, it was selected as one of the three protest zones.

The Garden
Typical of classical Chinese garden style, and like many of Beijing's parks and gardens, it is a mountain-water landscaped garden.
