Introduction

Located at Lane 150, Section 5, Xinyi Road, beside Exit 2 of MRT Xiangshan Station, the Park used to be a military firing range. After the firing range moved away, the site was converted to a strip-shaped Park built along the foot of Xianshan (Elephant Mountain). With shady trees, chirping birds and fragrant flowers, the Park has become a popular spot for morning joggers. 
 
The noteworthy feature of the Park is that it is the only location in the City where tree frogs can be spotted. Taipei tree frog (Rhacophorus taipeianus) is a protected species endemic to Taiwan, with its size ranging between 3 and 5 cm and in different colours like yellow and green. It was discovered and named in 1978 by Prof Wang Chin-Jan of National Taiwan University. The tree frog sanctuary is located at the northeast corner of Zhongqiang Park. To provide tree frogs with a protected, sustainable habitat in Zhongqiang Park, Giant Elephant’s Ear and Ginger Lily are planted, alongside native species such as Tuberous Sword Fern, Cretan Brake Fern, Chinese Taro, Common Tree Fern and Bird’s Nest Fern; furthermore, a water pump was installed at the sanctuary to supply a fixed amount of water to the tree frog natural reserve, to preserve its wetland condition and thereby ensure habitat sustainability.
