Taoyuan 77 Cultural Streets (桃園77藝文町)
The Taoyuan 77 Cultural Streets were formerly Japanese-style dormitories for the Taoyuan police. Located in the Shopping District in front of the Taoyuan Train Station, it is now a recognized historical site renovated to be a cultural park. It is one of the most popular social media photo and check-in points in Taoyuan.
The Japanese-style dormitories of the Taoyuan police served as a commercial, cultural, and administrative center during the period of Japanese rule until after WWII. The city government decided three years ago to renovate the buildings and restore the aged, historical looks of them. The revamped Taoyuan 77 Cultural Streets was given the name by popular votes of the citizens with the combined meaning of its Japanese-rule history and Lane 77 of Zhongzheng Road.
There is designated space for various activities and events in the park, including the Kouri Shop (creative merchandise shop), Handcraft Workshop (for handcraft experiences), Former Police Office (visitor center, administrative offices), Prayer Pavilion (performance venue, rest area), Qitao Market (weekend market), Chengzhen Café (a well-known café chain). The park covers a moderately sized area, offering a cultural space in the city center of Taoyuan. On a cool and breezy afternoon, taking a stroll in the park will be a relaxing experience.
