Sunday:open 24 hours




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.

    Watch our for the frogs!


    Zhongqiang Park is the only part of the Taipei where Green Tree frogs occur naturally. The frogs are protected by an ecological area in the north-east area of the park. You may not be able to see them, but it's likely you will hear them croaking. There is some interesting frog-themed play equipment for the younger set. The park is long and narrow, it's a former military firing range. It has a roller ring and a basketball court. Zhongqiang Park is in the east of Taipei, you are most likely to come across it on the way from the MRT station to the Elephant Mountain trail head. It's a pleasant park, good for a family outing.

    Large park good for active kids


    Large park placed between up-market apartments and the mountains. Includes plenty of space, trees and pathways. Well designed and maintained - very comfortable and peaceful. Has large playground for smaller kids, and basketball courts for larger kids and adults. Also has toilets and amenities. Good place to take the tribe for an hour or two.

    Small park - nothing more or less


    Small park which you'll walk through if you want to go to the elephant mountain. Nothing major but I'd imagine it'll be a nice place to hang around when the construction around it is done and when the sun is out.

    Very relaxing and spacious


    It is a beautifully done park with loads of space and a play area for the kids to spend their battery. There is a skating rink and a basketball court attached. A good place for a walk, picnic and some meditation. It is under renovation and thus closed though at the moment.

    An ordinary little park.


    This is an ordinary little park, with not that much uniqueness. It serves mainly as the starting point to a strenuous ‪Elephant Mountain walking trail. While hardly "an attraction" on its own right, its worth a 5-minute visit.
