Shigang Dam

Posted Date:2021/08/13 2046

Introduction

Anchor
Shigang Dam is designed and constructed by Taiwanese architects in 1974. It was built on Dajia River as a water reservoir that supplies daily and productive water uses in Taichung.
The dam is also known for its magnificent scenery especially when there is ample water. Whereas, the downstream full of gravels is of an entirely different view which is also worth visiting.
Having endured the 921 Earthquake, a 921 Earthquake Memorial Park was built on the other end of the dam where parts of the damaged dam structure were kept to remind people of the powerful quake.
Also in light of the earthquake, a fish ladder is added to the damaged bank on the right side of the dam to facilitate diadromous fishes' natural migration. Since Shigang Dam is on the route of Dongfeng Bicycle Greenway, many tourists bike through Dongfeng Bicycle Greenway to get to the beautiful scenery of Shigang Dam.

    From Fengyuan it is easily accessible by bus. The area surrounding the dam is like a park, and the cyclists come to take a rest. It is maybe good for picnic.

    Bicycle trip in Taichung Houli

    There is a cycling path from the racecourse (后里馬場) to dam (石岡水壩), through the tunnel and old railway. The view is good but the cycling path is lack of notice signal.

    很久沒來石岡水壩,近來梅與豐沛,搭配藍天特來走走。石岡水壩建於民國63年,由國人自行設計與完工的水壩,當初為大甲溪的攔河堰,921地震後壩頂長度為275.5公尺,是一個橫跨大甲溪的水壩,提供台中市農業、民生及工業用水主要水源區。不論遠看或近看皆是壯觀與宏偉,水壩上游攔水成為一個大湖,每當豐水時節,兩岸青山綠水,相連環抱,剎是迷人,下游則礫石成堆風光秀麗。

    假日遊客很少 在這散步氛圍悠閒 現在正好是梅花盛開的季節可順便賞花 這也是非常好的野餐地點 另一邊的921公園有保留921大地震受損的水壩和一些紀錄可參觀 適合全家大小一起來走走逛逛

    純休閒的去處

    附近有出租電動車與腳踏車;是適合坐在長椅上看施放水量,放空一早上的地點。走上水壩有部分路段做了透明地面,可以看到閘門的狀態
