Daxue Park, Downtown Taipei - Grassy Area to Play

Wandering around the alleys and lanes of Da An area, I came across this quaint park. At first, I thought it was just a community garden, but I discovered the park has a lovely grassy area that would be make a great spot for a children's birthday party. It is sheltered by trees, accompanied by a garden, and also features a historic waterway that has been restored.

Situated right next to Xinhai Road, there was roadside parking right by the park entrance. There is a more traditional kind of playground closer to the road. Walk down the lane about 100 metres to enter this other section.

The more traditional park right on the sidewalk.

Just down the lane, to the left of the first park.

What's behind these trees?...

A nice grassy space with a wooden walkway and seating.

Trit trot, trit trot on my bridge!

There is a large area of plants being cared for; vegetables and flowers.

This drain was first laid in 1735! It was used for horticulture for 250 years before going out of operation in 1984. Now, it is home to carp and turtles.

This turtle was enjoying some sun until I disturbed it.
I think this would have been a great park for us to use when the children were younger as a birthday party spot. Unfortunately, I didn't see any toilet facilities, which would make it less convenient than say Daan Park, but it is still quite lovely.
