Huanghuacheng (Chinese: 黄花城; Pinyin: Huánghuāchéng) is a village in Jiuduhe, Huairou District, Beijing, the north of China bordering onto the Great wall of China. The town is famous for having several lakes in close proximity to the wall.

Since 2010 October 30, there have been a few reports, in Huanghuacheng, on a large falling object, not far from the village, burning its way down to Earth from the sky.
