The Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park (顺义奥林匹克水上公园 or 順義奧林匹克水上公園 in Chinese) was the site of the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games where Larisa Illchenko of Russia and Maarten van der Weijden of the Netherlands won the gold medals.

The Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park was specifically built for the rowing, canoeing and open water swimming events in the 2008 Beijing Olympics in Mapo Village in the Shunyi District in Beijing, China. In preparation for the Olympic Games, the World Junior Rowing Championships, China Open Canoe/Kayak Slalom, China Canoe/Kayak Flatwater Open and the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim qualification race were held in advance.
