Introduction

Located at the junction of Section 1 of Zhicheng Road and Yusheng Street in Shilin District, beside Shuangxi River, this vast nature Park is thoughtfully installed with ecological features and culture-historical relics. The Park got its name because its landscape is similar to that of Zhishan in Fujian’s Zhangzhou, whose people came to settle in northern Tamsui and Shilin during the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty. Historical monuments abound in the Park, with prehistoric cultural icons, including those of the Dabenkeng, Zhishanyan, Yuanshan and Botanical Garden eras, as well as the enchanting history and culture of the Qing Dynasty, Japanese Colonial period and Nationalist government. There is a century-old temple “Huiji Temple” in the Park, which was built in the 17th year of Emperor Qianlong’s reign in the Qing Dynasty. In 1979, the temple was designated as a Class 3 historical monument by the Ministry of the Interior, in which the main deity is Kai-Zhang-Sheng-Wang (Sacred Prince, Developer of Zhangzhou). Due to the fact that the Park is a well-preserved historical site, many ancient trees can be found here, including the icon of the Park, a 300-year-old Camphor tree grown next to the Yunong Reading Room. The extended weathering process has caused the landforms in the Park to figure various quaint sculptural formations, such as Elephant Rock, Cavity Rock, Onion Rock, Giant Rock and Snake Frog Rock, which are all excellent geological educational materials.
