Fragrant Hills Park (Xiangshan Park; Chinese: ?; pinyin: Xiangshan Gongyuán) is an imperial garden at the foot of the Western Mountains in the Haidian District, in the northwestern part of Beijing, China. It was also formerly known as Jingyi Palace or "Jingyiyuan" (). It covers 1.6 km² (395 acres) and consists of a natural pine-cypress forest, hills with maple trees, smoke trees and persimmon trees, as well as landscaped areas with traditional architecture and cultural relics. The name derives from the park's highest peak, Xianglu Feng (Incense Burner Peak), a 557 meters (1827 ft) hill with two large stones resembling incense burners at the top.
