Laojie (Old Street) Creek and Xinjie (New Street) Creek flow through the metropolitan area of the southern Taoyuan. After the river restoration for Laojie Creek and Xinjie Creek, the two distinctive trails, Laojie Creek Trail and Xinjie Creek Trail, are established. The two trails not only enrich the dimensions of tourism, but also bring changes to the urban manner of leisure. For example, the public is able to relax in the lush greenery of the hydrophilic trails while amidst in the busy, metropolitan district. The dazzling lighting show at night, the surrounding Xinshi Park, the River-Ecology Education Center and other related facilities, have become the new leisure landmarks in the southern Taoyuan.

Originating from Longtan, Laojie Creek runs northward through Pingzhen, Zhongli, Dayuan regions, and is named after Zhongli Laojie which it passes through on the way. Laojie Creek is therefore an important river in Zhongli City.

The starting point of Laojie River Trail is in the Bazizun Riverbank Park in Pingzhen District, while the end point is at Laojie River Bridge on Huanbei Road, making it easily accessible. Departing from Sanchong Bridge in Pingzhen, you will be able to connect to Bajiaotang (Octagonal Pond), Bogong Temple, Zhongli Jiushe, Pingzhen Xinshi Park, and River Education Center. The stroll along the creek trail caters to both sight-seeing and leisure purposes, and thus energizes the walkers on the trail.

The Xinjie Creek, also the target of river restoration, flows through Zhongli and Pingzhen downtown and parallels with Laojie Creek as the two major rivers in Zhongli District. Xinjie Creek has a 3 km long hydrophilic riverbank with lush greenery. Along both sides of the Creek, 1.5 km riverbank trails will be built for local residents to have a place to stroll and exercise.

The trail starts from Fude Bridge, goes southward, and then is divided into Zhongfu Segment and Xizhou Segment. Zhongfu Segment is specially noted for its green landscape. When you walk along the riverbank, you can see the distinctive riverbank ecology. Along the trail, you will pass the lush greenery Zhongli Art Center, which has various artistic sculptures and exercise facilities for the public to appreciate and to use. The cherry blossom trail at the riverbank is also a place worthy of a visit.

After coming to Yanping Road and then turning into Xizhou Street, you now enter into Xizhou Segment of Xinjie Creek Trail. Situated between Xinjie Bridge on Puyi Road and Fude Bridge on Zhongshan Road, this segment is approximately 1 km and there is wooden planked trail for visitors to walk upon along the way. You can also visit Ren Hai Temple and Shenji Pavilion to partake in a fruitful cultural tour.

    The river path is nice to walk, it’s in the middle of zhongli city center. It’s a Long riveside path which is good for a relax walk in the afternoon.

    This is a beautiful, peaceful ride/walk through the city passing many gentle points of interest and artwork. There are also a few cafes and restaurants along the way and many more just off the trail itself.

    老街溪整修後一切都很美好, 讓人重新發現老街溪的美, 沿著河岸漫步, 天空特別地藍, 草地特別地綠, ㄧ台又一台的腳踏車飛馳而過, 真的是一條好步道啊!

    我,第一次來,就愛上了。 結束壢新醫院的探病,租了Ubike回中壢車站,途中看見老街溪單車道,就開啟悠遊水岸的旅程。 從三崇橋為起點,行經延平橋、翠堤橋,以中正橋為終點;沿途有平房、公寓、大廈和商辦大樓;有廟宇、學校、公園和運動中心;有水鳥造訪、有市民散步……如同一連串和諧的畫面。 用一個單純的態度,不作任何比較,就會發現桃園市竟有這麼一條水岸自行車道,像是中壢這個城市的銀河。
