Zhishan Park is located by the Waishuang River across from Shuangxi Park. Besides an important gateway to the National Palace Museum and Yangmingshan National Park, it is even the hub linking travel to Shilin and Shuangxi. Occupying an area of 24,786m2, Zhishan Park is spacious with undulating terrain bringing wave-like beauty. Although the traffic of Yangde Boulevard Shilin outside the park is extremely heavy, inside the park is a quiet and pure space secluded from the outside world, making a sharp contrast to the hustle and bustle outside and turning the park into an arcadia in the city. Entering the park, the bronze statue of Tsin-Hang Woo standing in front of the lotus pond is the first sight to spot. This bronze statute, looking very familiar, was relocated from the roundabout at Dunhua South Road and Renai Road. Today, the bronze statue mercifully watching visitors has become an eye-catching landmark of Zhishan Park. Besides the lotus pond at the park entrance, there is bigger and deeper pond inside the park. When looking at the pond’s reflection of the green in the park and listening to the murmuring water of the Waishuang River outside the park, it is relaxing and fantastic. In addition, besides re-presenting the agricultural past of Zhishan Park,
the waterwheel pond in the east is also the best spot for school fieldtrips. When you drive to Yangmingshan or pass by the National Palace Museum, Shilin Official Residence, and Chinese Culture and Movie Center, why not take a break at Zhishan Park to enjoy nature in the company of mountains and rivers in the park to relax tension and recharge for the next journey.
