2/28 Peace Park, Taipei

3.8
A European-style park dotted with memorials and museums, 2/28 Peace Park stands in memory to the victims of one of the most horrific massacres in Taiwan’s history. Opened in 1908, the park was renamed in 1998 as a memorial for the “228” civilian massacre on February 28, 1947 by the Kuomintang government. Stroll through the leafy paths of the park’s gardens, dotted with palms, as you make your way to the memorial pavilion, reflecting on the country’s violent past. For a more thorough history, head to the park’s memorial museum or the national Taiwan museum located at the northern entrance.

Eventually riot spread to Taiwan island, Taiwan people victims of the 20000 people in Taiwan Executive Yuan estimated between 30000 people's. It is a park of remembrance of the victims of these.

  • Love this place. Lots of trees, art deco monuments and pagodas. It's big enough and a great place to stop and sit down. I visited this park many times and am always impressed. Lots of friendly squirrels.
  • This is a great place to walk around and there is a lot of shades due to the trees. The playground is nice but it's more for kids under 5, although there is a big slide for bigger kids. There are a lot of things to see such as the fish pond, the pagoda, among other things. There are a lot of history and good reads/displays. The name 228 is a relatively new name change due to politics, unfortunately.
  • Good place to get away from the office for awhile. Walk around, enjoy the peaceful surroundings, sit on a bench, and watch the squirrels. Lots of people at lunchtime, but that's OK.
  • Very nice, tranquil park. I wouldn't make it a destination unless you're already in the area, but really nice with some meaningful art. Sometimes there are peaceful protests happening there as well.
  • The simplicity, darkness and abstract nature of the monument is a thought provoking monument to that terrible massacare. The accompanying musieum is a very honest and sobering reflection on the darkest moment in Taiwan's history. It is a model of critical self-reflective national history that can accept the misdeeds of the past and grow from it.
