Taipei’s Yongchunpi Wetland Park opened to the public on Thursday after four years of construction, offering local people a chilling place to take a walk and relax. The new park becomes the second wetland ecological park in Taipei following the opening of the Nangang Wetland Park in February.
Located at the foot of the Four Beast Mountains, the 3.98-hectare ecological park is right next to the Song Shan High School of Commerce and Home Economics.
The park features several ponds and swamps; the ecological area is also connected to the Four Beasts Hiking Trail.
Most people don’t know but the park was a military site that was later abandoned due to cuts in military forces.
The park, which is covered with 6,378-square-meters of water, features an elevated trail and ecology exhibition hall where you can observe little egrets through a wide window. If you are an amateur photographer, don’t miss the opportunity to take a spectacular bird’s eye view shot while walking on the elevated trails.
With Taipei 101 in the distance, the park, which sits amid the concrete jungle, is poised to become a top destination for city people wanting to relax on weekends.
