Shigang Dam

Posted Date:2018/04/26 558

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.

    今天來石岡水壩旁騎腳踏車,剛好石岡水壩正在開閘門放水,親眼看見水從大壩滔滔不絕而下,非常壯觀美麗的景色!

    石岡水壩位於后豐自行車道旁,如果你是來騎自行車可以順便來這邊看一看,這邊有一個停車場,可以直接把車停進來

    好玩

    假日在水霸旁的公園內有一團人在演奏中樂,又有很多攝影發燒友在此拍照,可從中學習他們取景角度。騎單車此處有少許上斜,有點吃力。
