Central Park

Watch the exceptional water dances that take place several times a day at Water Square in the center of this green park.

Kaohsiung’s Central Park is a rural area in the center of the city with many picturesque features and intriguing complexes. The library, the labyrinth and the vast lake are the most prominent attractions in this park, attracting joggers, dog-walkers and strolling couples. Escape the hectic bustle of city life for an afternoon in this serene park.

Take a romantic promenade with your partner along the shores of the lake. Waltz along a path that is lined by swaying palm trees. It should take between 10 to 20 minutes to traverse the length of the park. Sit with your family on the grass and revel in the extraordinary views of green hills, wooden bridges and water features.

Watch local residents concentrating on a fierce game of chess in Speech Square. Take the kids to the maze to see if they can find their way out on their own. Visit the accompanying playground that will keep children busy for hours.

Capture photos of the lake, its bridges and a small island with a backdrop of Kaohsiung’s skyscrapers in the distance, as a reminder of the city’s presence beyond the rural environment. Watch 20-minute-long water dances that are performed regularly throughout the day.

This large green space was constructed as part of a plan to give fresh air to the industrial city of Kaohsiung. Its central position in the city means it is near restaurants and shops.

The park is located just east of Love River in the heart of Kaohsiung. Take the Red Line of the metro system to Central Park Station. The station is just a short walk away from the park.

Central Park’s underground train station is an attraction in itself due to its Space Age design and sunflower-shaped pinwheels. Be sure to visit this metro station, considered among the most beautiful metro stations in the world.
