According to the Construction Bureau of Taichung city (CBT), the roads and parks where the Golden Rain trees are in full blossom include Wenxin South 7th Road, Taiyuan Road, Fengle Sculptures Park, Wen-Xin Forest Park and more. In addition, silk floss trees adorned with pink flowers in blossom in 823 Battle Memorial Park and Jiankang Park will make you stop and take a moment to admire the beauty of nature.
