Beiling Park (simplified Chinese: 北陵公园; traditional Chinese: 北陵公園; pinyin: Běilíng Gōngyuán) is a park in the northern part of Shenyang City, China. The park has an area of 3,300,000m², and contains many historic buildings, pine trees and lakes.

In 1927, Government of the Fengtian Province (later renamed Liaoning Province ) established the park, which includes Zhaoling, the tomb of the second Qing emperor, Huang Taji, and surrounding area. The construction of the tomb took place between 1643 and 1651. West of the tomb are flower gardens and east are several lakes. There is also a Children's Garden within the park.
