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.

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.

    Beautiful small natural oasis in the city. Plenty of buskers and locals and tourists and birds wandering around the park leisurely. Worth a visit if you're in the area!

    Neat park commemorating the anti-government protests that started on 2/28/1947, which led to a violent government response and the death of thousands. The centerpiece of the park is a monument dedicated to the victims. It’s fairly small with some notable attractions, including Chinese pagodas and the National Taiwan Museum. The 2/28 Memorial Museum is on a nearby location, about 1.5 kilometers south of the park.

    A very small park but not bad for an evening walk. But do mind some creepy statues over the pavilion.

    Located in Zhongzheng, this 228 Peace Park (二二八和平公園) is the oldest park in Taipei. In order to remember the innocent people sacrificed during the civil resistance (towards the corruption in government), a monument was set up in the park. Known as Taipei Park at first, it changed name to New Park in the past. Subsequently, in 1996, it was renamed to 228 Memorial Peace Park in the hope that people will learn from its painful historic lesson.I took the 捷运 to visit the place.

    The oldest publuc park in Taipei. A good kid play ground offered. Some beautiful flowers on the old trees, depending on the season. Good music performance from the amateur all year.
