“Visit the giant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

A fairly long walk through the park to the summit. Going up the giant statue provided some spectacular views of Keelung and a chance to ring the big Buddist's bell. Unfortunately the grounds have now become a little tacky with all the vendors.

“It was closed, nothing to do & see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

It's on top of a hill so at a clear day there must be a nice view over Keelung. When I went there it
seemed to be closed and there wasn't anything to see & do. I couldn't get inside and to the top of that big Guanyin statue which was the main reason going to the park.

From the center of Keelung it requires quite a lot of walking and climbing stairs to get there. Not really recommend the park unless you're for some reason very interested in going there.

“There's nothing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

There's literally quite a few things to do.

Hiking to the park, watching down a city of Keelung, wait for taxi...

“Very nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Walked from the hotel up to the park using "local" stairways. The view of Keelung is great and there are sections of the park frequented by local residents trying to fine a cool place with a possible breeze. Everyone I met was friendly and a surprising number spoke English and were genuinely interested in making sure I was aware of all the things to see and do.

“Ghost festival museum & Zhong zheng park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

From Maritime Bureau cross the road to reach opposite. The cultural centre building is opposite. Passing it , turn & follow the street, you will find steps climbing upon to your left. Just climb it. Firstly you will get into Ghost Festival museum & then follow up the path to reach Zhongzheng park where you will find the unique statue(Guan yin). Around the statue, there are plenty of recreational facility for kids & restaurant to refresh. It occupies a commanding view of Kelang Harbor. Very nice to view it. Also, on the back of the statue, there is a stair going up to view the city from all sides.
