Nice to see the nature preserved. There are a lot of amazing scenic places along the coastline that you must visit if you ever get a chance.

Would strongly recommend going through this park on a bike as it covers a wide area and may be too large to explore on foot alone. The pathways are a bit narrow, but there are little to no sharp inclines or declines, making the bike-ride reasonably family friendly and suitable for most ages. The park features multiple ponds, of which... More

Nothing really special. It is true that it looks so much better in picture than in actual.Riding a bike is recommended though.

This is a nice and beautiful park. You can go walking, but better go there on a bicycle. There are many bicycle lanes. Many different kind of trees and well maintained. There is a kiosk for some food and drinks. In the eastern part , near the ocean is a big lake, suitable for swimming in fresh water.

Ditto other reviews regarding the breath-taking scenery and crystal-clear lake. What struck us most is the locals who also hang out here. We saw an aborigine tribe gathering on the beach, a few Taiwanese temple workers eating their bento on the side of the road, and a few elderly veterans taking fresh air under the trees. My kids were fascinated... More

We rented bikes ($150 NT/ea) for my son who's 8 and my mother who is 72. We rode around the Taitung Forest Park with our tour guide (We stayed at Toyugi Hot Springs Resort, and booked this half-day tour with them). It's about 1 1/2 very easy ride on a nicely paved bike path. The three-color ocean of Taitung is... More

We really did not have enough time to view everything this huge park had to offer but what we did see was well tamed nature. Upon entering the park, a group of young people were having fun playing ball on the green lawn behind the restrooms. Then a long road ahead with many maps of the park at strategic locations... More

Not because scary things come out to play, but the biking trail that goes out from the park has absolutely no lighting at night. Roadworks are still in progress so perhaps that will change in a few months' time. But in the meantime, finish up your cycling by sundown! The park is lovely though, and the Pipa Lake absolutely crystal... More

The bike is big, suggest rent a bike. It's only 100~150 NTD to rent a bike.

This park is humble and modest. It is almost always deserted and the admission is free of cost. You can rent a bicycle or take a stroll through the forest. The sunlight leaks through the vastly covered roof of leaves and it truly makes nature look stunning. I would definitely recommend. Though I would advise bringing water and food yourself... More
