Attraction Highlights

- 360-degree panorama night view

- LOVE mosaic lovers’ benches

 

You can have the 360-degree panorama view of Taoyuan without a sweat. Hutoushan is located within 5km from Taoyuan Train Station. The Eco Park has an altitude of only 251m but is a vantage point with unobstructed view of the city against the starry night sky. It has always been a very popular local spot.

Nicknamed the “Starry Park,” Hutoushan Eco Park covers an area of 2.5 hectares. Originally a landfill that was closed down at the end of 1998, the space was renovated and reopened in August 2002 as a suburban scenic park. The park is powered by solar and wind power and uses LED lighting and ecological engineering methods to minimize negative impact on the environment. The windmill at the entrance welcomes visitors to embark on an eco trip and a conversation with nature. The stone carved statue named “Nurturing” on the center lawn in the park symbolizes the changes of this space.

There are facilities including walking trails, wooden pavilions, binocular stands, the great lawn, and the LOVE mosaic benches. Different from the original looks of Hutoushan Park comprised mostly of tall trees, at the Eco Park you can enjoy overlooking Luzhu, Dayuan, Bade, and Zhongli. During the day you see parents taking a walk with children. At sundown, coffee carts and food trucks are open for business. The glorious night view of the city coupled with the coffee aroma makes it an enjoyable moment.

The Eco Park and the most well-preserved Japanese-style shrine in Taiwan, Martyrs' Shrine of Taoyuan, is only 1km apart. Visitors can plan a double-themed trip of nature and culture and explore Taoyuan from different perspectives.
