Amid the hustle and bustle of Taipei City, the Guting Riverside Park becomes a haven for people to catch their breath and provides a short break from the busy urban life.
The Guting Riverside had been expanded in the beginning of 2021, with nearly 130,000 pots of purple flowers planted to give the park a look of a dreamy wonderland.
According to park officials, the best flower viewing period will last until the end of March.
The sea of flowers in the park covers an area of about 4,000 square meters, and the main flower is the “small-faced flower,” also known as sweet violets.
In addition, different species of lavender are also used to decorate the park.
Guting Riverside Park is located between Yongfu Bridge and Zhongzheng Bridge. Not only does it have beautiful flowers, but it also has an abundance of public facilities such as tennis courts, basketball courts and ice rinks. Besides taking in the beautiful scenery, you can also kill two birds with one stone and exercise whilst enjoy your weekend or holiday.
