  • The place is large. The place become more beautiful on vacation days. So many people comes every day. The atmosphere is awesome lots of flowers trees. It make you feel that you are in forest. I like the place very much. Best place to bring your kids. They can run play enough place for them. You can place a small tent to protect your in day time during summer, and can enjoy a lot for sure.
  • Had a wonderful weekend spent here with my kid running around seeing birds, ducks, squirrels and we even had a chance to get up close with the squirrels to feed them with food. There's a huge playground and sandpit which children would definitely love coming over here to spend the day. Highly recommended place for picnic, stroll in the park.
  • A beautifully kept park. It's extremely big for a park in the middle of a big city like Taipei and you can walk around it for quite a while. I really enjoyed watching people feed squirrels, ducks, and other birds around the park. There is also a great area for children to go rollerblading and a huge sand pit. Lots of benches to sit and relax.
  • The kid's playground is very nice... had my 5 yr old get exhausted there for an hour of playing. Unfortunately my kid got bullied in the sandbox by a local kid while the mom just looked. Another local dad grabbed my son from the collar as he was climbing up the net ladder because he wanted his toddler to climb up first... wasnt able to do a thing due to language barrier and us being the tourists
  • Love Daan park so much. Such great place to walk around and go out with family and friends. Chill and picnic is a great choice for sure!
