Taichung Park

Posted Date:2016/07/13 30k


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.

    台東森林公園適合騎腳踏車也適合步行散步!可以直接走到海邊也可以走到旁邊的活水湖!但是疫情期間通往活水湖的小門五點以後才會打開。琵琶湖的幽靜美感完全不輸給日本的庭院! Taitung Forest Park is suitable for cycling and walking! You can walk directly to the beach or to the living lake...
