Xinshi Park (新勢公園)
Going back to your childhood – fun at the colorful playground
Rock climbing, skateboarding, and roller-skating: challenge yourself with extreme sports
Little scientist’s adventure: explore the natural water filter of Laojie Creek
The section of Xinshi Park near Zhongyuan Road has a cricket court, boardwalk, and ocean-themed playground. The 3m-tall colorful hill is a focal point of the playground. The fish and sea turtle statues make you feel that you are at the bottom of the ocean. Slide down on the slide into the white sand pit. The mini excavator and the sand platform will be super fun for kids. In addition to the common swing, there is a 360° rotating swing that will make children feel that they are flying. Try the climbing wall if you would like to dare yourself and test your physical abilities. The extreme sports court at the Southern District Teenager Activity Center is just as popular to skaters and parkour enthusiasts as the playground to kids. The graffiti on the wall is a statement as cool as the thrill-seeking athletes.
The great lawn in the middle of the park is surrounded by a bike trail and an elevated jogging trail. Visitors have many options in how they would like to enjoy the nature here. The ecological pond along Laojie Creek is a science class in itself: using microorganisms to decompose the pollutants in wastewater, the system then redirects purified water to the ecological pond and Laojie Creek. This “water purification with gravels” project has won the 2013 Taiwan Real Estate Excellence Awards. Receiving environmental education while relaxing at the park is a great way to enrich your trip.
