Introduction

The 4,693 m2, slightly triangular Wanhua Park No. 402 is located at the intersection of Bangka Boulevard and Xiyuan Road, which used to be occupied by the Taipei Jen-Chi Relief Institution and private residences. The neighborhood was notorious for ITS outdated amenities and a substandard lifestyle that left the city unsightly. In an urban renewal program for Wanhua District, Taipei City Government launched a park expansion plan that added greenery and decorations to reinforce healthy trees/plants already grown in the park in an attempt to improve living quarters and provide greater access to public lawns. The revamped park was inaugurated on November 13, 2006.

Herbs, including therapeutic Chinese herbs, are grown along Xiyuan Road in the brand-new Park No. 402, where benches and an activity plaza (approx. 256 m2) were installed between the park lanes parallel to Bangka Boulevard and historic buildings. A variety of shrubs (blue butterfly bushes, Osmanthus, etc.) connect the plaza, the buildings and corridor; massive lawns and trees (such as banyans, Fan Palms, Chinese Hackberry, camphor trees and Spindle Palm) abound in the park, offering the neighborhood a perfect bonding place for recreation and chit-chats.

    The beginning of modern psychiatry in Taiwan

    2021-01

    A small park and playground. In the mid of the park, there is a brick made Taiwanese bungalow. Dating back to 1922, it was one of the inpatient wards of Jen-Chi Hospital (仁濟療養院) ~ the first psychiatric hospital in Taiwan. The house was renovated to be a Community Conference Center. In a corner of the house, a brief history of the Hospital is presented. There are also collection of old photos and related documents. Free admission. Though looks insignificant, it is really a historic building. The hospital was the beginning of modern psychiatry in Taiwan.

    規模不大但有特色的社區公園

    2021-10

    和平青草園位在台北萬華西園路與艋舺大道交會處,面積不大,但內有日據時代建立的舊仁濟療養院磚造建築,現已改造為社區活動中心。園中有兩棵大榕樹,庇蔭部份的綠地,供民眾乘涼。還有許多適合兒童玩樂及鍛鍊體能的設施,是遛小孩的好地方。

    台北に滞在中、龍山寺あたりのエリアを散策中にこちらの公園へ立ち寄りました。地元の人たちのための公園のようで、遊具が結構置いてあって子供連れの人たちが訪れていました。

    大きな木が2本ある公園

    それほど大きく無い公園です。2本の大きな木が園内にあり、夏は木陰で休むことができそうです。公園事務所では自然に関する講座が開かれているようです。
