迎接母親節,后里環保公園太陽花海燦爛綻放!面積超過1.2公頃的向日葵花海在5月份已盛開,大片花海金黃燦爛。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – As Mother’s Day is drawing near, do you have any ideas where you can spend a beautiful day with your loved ones? This year, the picturesque sunflower fields of the Houli Huanbao Park in Taichung are in full blossom since the begin of May.

台中市政府建設局長陳大田表示,可在花海旁的小山丘俯瞰花海美景,也可於公園環狀步道漫步欣賞太陽花,在母親節安排一趟賞花輕旅行。

Chen Da-tien, director of the Construction Bureau under Taichung City Government, said that visitors can either wander in the flagrant sunflower fields on the hills or take a stroll along the trial around the fields on Mother’s Day.

陳大田指出,后里環保公園前身是垃圾掩埋場,公園植物生長不易,經過市府多年改造,已成功轉型為生態公園,除了硬體設施逐年改善外,也營造具花海特色的公園;今年初波斯菊花海獲得市民好評,因此,建設局持續配合季節打造夏季花海,讓后里環保公園成為民眾拍照打卡的好去處。

Houli Huanbao Park, a former landfill, was transformed into an ecological park in recent years, thanks to the continuous upgrade of local equipment and the creation of the stunning flower sea, Chen went on. The city government will keep on expanding the summer flower fields to attract more visitors, he added.

陳大田表示,建設局除了打造花海外,也積極改善原是垃圾掩埋場的土質,花海結束後,花材將混入原土以綠肥方式處理,可改善土質,讓環保公園內的花海景觀更永續。此次花季預計至5月下旬,歡迎把握花季前往賞花拍照,感受徜徉花海的幸福感。

In addition to promoting the flower fields, the local government has worked on improving soil properties so that flowers will eventually fertilize the soil and create a sustainable ecosystem. The floral season will run until the end of May, so get don’t wait anymore and get lost in these unique flower fields. Don’t leave without taking some beautiful pictures!
