Owl Forestry School, a kids’ paradise in Hutoushan Park, is located next to the Confucius Temple. The forest attracts owls to rest here in winter—this is the origin of the name “Aoer” which sounds like “owl.” Inside the three clusters of tree houses, you can find ceramic owls created by local artist. Try to find the 15 owls with your children.
 

Owl Forestry School takes advantage of the climbing feature of the aerial roots of red fruit fig trees; and when building, avoided the roots such that the tree houses and the trees can coexist naturally without damaging the nature. To reinforce the structure of the tree houses, glass fibers are applied to ensure safety.
 

The elevated squirrel boardwalk connects three tree houses: Tree-reading Classroom, Hoot-hoot House, and Green Ark. Tree-reading Classroom is shaped like a hexagon, making 360° observation of the tree crown possible. Children will be able to learn from a different perspective and enjoy different kinds of fun. Hoot-hoot House is shaped like an owl, the guardian of the forest. Climb inside and peep outside through the cracks. You will get a chance to come face-to-face with rare birds! The “Green Ark” platform is shaped like a leaf. In the middle there is an elevated owl hut for birds to rest.

Besides the tree houses, the playground is also a lot of fun! In addition to the four slides, there is also an extra long red-and-yellow slide. Combined with various climbing structures, kids will never get tired of this place! There are also occasional environmental education lessons. Through storytelling, handcraft, and drawing, children can learn about nature and begin to care about nature.
