Some people may warn you there are lots of gay people gathering here, but actually it is not true right now. Yes, many gay people will come to this park in the past, but the society is open to LBGT communities now and there is no need for them to stay here anymore. This park is to memorize the tragedy 228 event now, which many Taiwanese was killed many years ago. The park is beautiful, relaxing, and easy to go to Ximen or president's office. Worthy to take a look.
