We went there when there was w flower festival on and it was pretty average. For gardens it is below par and wouldn't waste your time going there. Many better gardens in Taipei

We stopped off here on the way back from th Forbidden City and liked the walk around the gardens. We then took a tour of the former Presidential Residence were President & Madame Chiang entertained at official functions, nice to see and hear what it was like in those times.

Spent a couple of hours wandering the many beautiful gardens. A central hill is worth walking up as the views are quite nice. Some of CKS's belongings were interesting to see, especially his Caddy. Try to go early or late in the day to avoid the many large tour groups that can detract from the serenity of this place.

We stopped by here for a visit as part of a one-day city sightseeing trip before heading to Jiu Fen (please see my earlier review here about Jiu Fen). It's quite a big park with lots of things to see and with this walk-about, one will be able to grasp a good understanding about the history, stories and the lifestyle... More

good for a morning stroll, a small park in the city with an outdoor cafe. you will see some painters there working on their pieces, this was the old official residence of City's mayor in taipei but the building itself is out of bounds.

As others have said these are busy gardens, but if you are prepared to shut out the noise the gardens will give pleasure. It was our view they they were a little more enjoyable than the botanical gardens.

Would have been very pleasant if not for the hordes of tourist groups. Didn't get to see CKC's residence as it was a Monday. Entrance to the park is free but NT100 to enter the residence. Visit any day except Monday if you are planning to see CKC's residence.

It was crowded on the main paths( mainly noisy mainland chinese tour groups), they cannot leave their tour group or be fined. So go deep and u wont... More
