Beijing E-Town's parks and commercial areas were filled with relaxing festival vibes on May 2.

In the park, you can appreciate the beauty of nature, watch the reflections of geese in the shimmering waves, and fly kites in the spring breeze. While in the commercial area, you can taste a variety of cuisines from all over the world and fill up your shopping cart.

At 9:30 am, visitors in the Nanhaizi Park's peony garden were already aiming their cameras at the blooming peonies, capturing the elegance and beauty of the flowers.

Accompanied by flocks of waterbirds, visitors also indulge in views of the lake inside the park.

"Look, the pair of wild geese are spreading their wings, get ready to take a picture!" "The wild ducks are resting, don't disturb them, kids." People were mesmerized by the reflections of the wild geese in the water, chatting quietly or spending quality time with their families.
