Shigang Dam

Posted Date:2018/04/26 1527

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

    Traveler rating:4 2016-01

    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.

    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

    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

    第一次來很壯麗的景觀

    Traveler rating:5 2020-03

    石岡水壩我們是第一次來,剛好它也是東豐自行車綠色廊道的中心位置,可以往東勢騎或是往后里騎,水壩看起來拍照都很壯觀美麗,裡面也有小公園樹木花草可以觀賞。外面也有攤販與自行車店。很不錯的景點。
