Taichung Park

Posted Date:2016/07/13 27k

Introduction

Anchor
Taichung Park is the oldest park in Taichung city. Built in the Japanese-ruling era and with a space of 10 acres, the park base at that time was the garden, named Ruixuan and actually donated by the Lin family in Wufeng, together with the old Beimen Building. Taichung Park features many pretty landscapes, such an artificial lake, pavilion, arch bridge, etc. There are also lots of recreational equipments, like outdoor stadium, playground, and tennis court. Some extraordinary European-style building and Houxing Pavilion were constructed in 1908 in celebration of the launch of the Taiwan Railway stretching from north to south in Taiwan. Houxing Pavilion has also been the symbol of Taichung City since the Japanese-ruling era and it’s hence officially declared as a city-designated historical site in 1999.

    It was great to wander around the Forest park. There is a small fee to enter but the paths and grounds are well kept. Some great photo ops at the lakes and lots of beautiful colours along the way...

    An attraction not far from taitung city. Just next to the seashore park. There’s a forest trail either on foot or bike. It’s ok, nothing fantastic

    Exceptional Park, Very Unique

    Traveler rating:5 2019-01

    This park is like no other I've visited. It's both man made, and natural feeling at the same time. I recommend renting a bike and biking around because it's quite large, but you can also stroll...
