Your Tarzan moment: going through the trees on the elevated boardwalk

At the owl tree houses you can observe birds close-up.

The two-color tube slide is fast but safe for kids

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.

    Very crowded on weekends, plenty of kids and people with their pets. Free water dispenser near the office but not much in the way of food. Bbq pits nearby though.

    園區裡大概有四個大型的遊樂設施,小朋友可以選擇自己喜歡的玩,主要是有不同的攀爬方式,不同的走道和不同的溜滑梯.還有兩個比較長的溜滑梯,玩一次就要爬一次樓梯,小朋友一連玩了五六次.園區裡還有一個比較大的廣場,有小朋友喜歡的恐龍造景,廁所和賣東西的地方.不過小男生還是喜歡爬來爬去,所以就在大型的設施裡來回玩了很久.因為樹蔭很多,所以在一旁的家長也不用怕太陽曬,只是小朋友眾多,年齡層不同,要注意安全就是了. 這次來訪奧爾森林學堂,覺得發現了一個遛小孩的好地方.首先是離停車場很近,不用走個一段路才到,也不用任何費用.在環境上因為有很多樹蔭的關係,也很涼爽,不用怕太陽曬.另外,遊樂設施算是很豐富,給小朋友爬上爬下,還有溜滑梯可以讓小朋友玩的不亦樂乎,真的是很棒啊!
