Tainan Park

Tainan Park, North District: Tickets, Tours, Address, Phone Number, Tainan Park Reviews: 4/5

The area
Neighborhood: West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the district, and the long-standing history results in a variety of street food. In addition to that, this district also has the highest number of temples. This is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example, Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan Literature, Confucius Temple, Chihkan Tower (formerly Fort Provintia), Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, Tainan Grand Mazu (name of a goddess) Temple, etc. Recently, the tourism in Tainan has laid emphasis on alleys and lanes. Examples include Fujhong Street specialising in creative handicrafts, as-you-stroll desserts on Jhengsing Street, Shennong Street lined with hundred-year-old ancient houses, Sinyi Street on which the old city gate stands, Sinmei Street where old and new cultures fuse together, and Guohua Street and Baoan Raod famous for all the savoury food. All the traditional and delicious food and flavours are about to burst in your mouth. The North District, on the other hand, is a quiet secret hideaway. Lane 321 on Gongyuan Road used to be a Japanese soldiers’ dormitory. Now a few artists have set up their studios here. There are diversified art styles in each old Japanese-style house. The Garden Night Market on Haian Road is one of the famous night markets in both Tainan and Taiwan, and was the top 12 Facebook check-in location worldwide in 2013.

Tainan city's green lung.
Jan 2020 • Solo
The park, within easy walking distance of the train station, is a place to get away from the city bustle for a little while, for locals and visitors alike. There are shaded walks and areas for recreation well utilised by the older folk for dance and exercise sessions. The centerpiece is the lake with its striking pavilion on the water, accessed by a path of many twists and turns.

PARK WITH A TRADITIONAL CONCEPT
Sep 2019 • Family
Tainan Park is a public space with a traditional concept. Equipped with several pavilions, footpaths, curved bridges and lily ponds scattered in the park area.

The pavilion and the bridge that runs along the river is an icon of Tainan Park. The park, which is also called Zhongshan Park, is filled with big old trees, so it feels like walking in the middle of a forest.

In the morning or evening many local residents, foreign workers and tourists spending time there.Some visitors also use the park as a social gathering.

The location is close to Tainan Station but it will be a long walk to get to Tainan Park. It's better to rent a bicycle and ride to the park to enjoy your free time in Tainan.

Nice park not much to see
Sep 2019
We visited the park for a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It was a nice place for a rest and a picnic, but not as much to see as others parks in the city.

A walk in the park
Feb 2019 • Couples
We visited Tainan Park at sunset and were amazed by how nice the Chinese style house in the middle of the pond looked - it is perfect for picture taking or a picnic. Lots of locals also exercise or meet here - there are also sculptures and a few walking trails

Beautiful park
Nov 2018 • Solo
Located not far from Tainan station, this is a beautiful park with many trees. When you are tired of walking, it is a nice place to take a rest. There are few people: quiet and relaxing. The pavilion on the lake, although a modern construction, is also beautiful.

I loved this park - something for everyone
Oct 2018 • Solo
I am still not caught up on how Tainan plans things but there seems to be a little bit of something for everyone. There are areas for kids to play, plenty of walking paths, along with quiet out of the way places to relax. I loved exploring this park so much that I did go twice. As a photographer it was nice to look at things with a different eye. I recommend this for a good walk and a free attraction. I really wish I would have thought to come at night to see what it offered then.

Great place for photos

In the summer it was extreme humid in this area so make sure you are very hydrated. If you like visiting temples, I would suggest you coming to this one.

Its ok

Nothing special. Not too well kept. A good size though with plenty of people walking or relaxing on one of its many benches. Located next to busy streets, so not too peaceful. There is a playground for kids in the middle.
