Taichung Park



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.

    What a place!!

    The Taitung Forest Park is not too far away from the busiest streets in downtown Taitung. If it is not too hot or raining, it may take you 30 to 45 minutes walking to get there. Once you get there...

    This is a well spaced area with lots of different routes within the park- which is much bigger that at first appears. A lot of he trees have been damaged in a storm but there is still lots of scenery...

    Good for biking, boring for walking

    If you are into biking, this is a nice place to go and explore. But the bathrooms were really gross.
