  • This is a well spaced area with lots of different routes within the park- which is much bigger that at first appears. A lot of he trees have been damaged in a storm but there is still lots of scenery ...  more »

  • It was the most beautiful forest in my memory--but not anymore. A local people said: After damaging by several gigantic typhoons, the magnificent scenery needs at least 10 years to recover. FYI: It cost 30 NT dollars to go inside, you can park your car or motorcycle there and rent a bicycle to enjoy the fresh air there. Don't forget your hat and sunglasses, you will appreciate my consideration.
  • A very beautiful park but its big so recommended to rent a bike or use the obike available around town.
  • Huge park that is breezy & photogenic. Take a stroll & your picnic basket along. Started charging NT$30 for admissions. It's ok, affordable as upkeep for this beautiful, clean & well maintained place.
  • Had fun cycling leisurely around the park! Supposedly a good place for bird watching.
  • Even though this area was devasted by a typhoon it still is quite pretty although the trees are missed. Definitely recommend renting a bike and cycling around the park.
