  • A very good park right in the heart of Taipei. You can see some wildlife while strolling through the park and around the lake. A relaxing spot.
  • I love this park. I didn't have chance to explore all but seeing lot of kids and families were there for picnic or other activities makes me feel happy and fresh. Nice place to stop by after the flower market.
  • Amazing oasis of peace and nature in the middle of the city. A lot of people do sports here. Great for running. One lap around the park is about 2Km
  • Great city park. Big kids playground, adult fitness area, coffee stand right there. Has its own metro stop with, interesting sunken gardens. Bird island, a small hill, basketball courts, and plenty of walk, run and bike paths. Decent bathrooms
  • it's a huge park and it's a best option to walk around in the morning. You can go there weekend in the morning and find aged people doing exercise, people painting scenery, and children having a school camp. And you can find many animals there, including little cute squirrel
