Shilin Guandi Park will have beautiful follows during different season. There are some small trails that you can walk through to see the view of the whole place.

This is a really park to visit but make sure you go early in the morning or late afternoon because it is very hot place. Other than that I enjoyed the park!

After driving from the port through decrepit apartment buildings, it was a relief to walk through these grounds of the former presidential palace. Locals flock to the rose gardens which are quite large.

My husband was a bit surprised that it was used to be the president's residence. The gardens were not that well kept. Lots of weed in the lawn. We would think they should keep the place better since it is almost a must stop for tourists.

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.
