Why Beitou Park is special ?
Beitou Park is situated along the central part of the Beitou River at the tail end of Yangmingshan National Park. The six-hectare park can be reached by walking from Xinbeitou MRT Station in the direction of Diregu (Hell Valley), another visit-worthy attraction adjacent to the park.
The park opened in 1913 at the same time as Beitou Public Baths (now the Beitou Hot Springs Museum) and is in the center of the historic Beitou hot springs district. The water fountain at the entrance to the park features fountain shows hourly throughout the day.
What to explore at Beitou Park?
Park facilities include a hot spring education center, hokutolite conservation area, administration center, indoor and outdoor bathing springs, a children's hot spring play area, and a topiary maze.
One of the highlights at the park is a series of five small waterfalls, with hot spring pools at each of the falls. The well-planned hot spring area is also an excellent spot to fully enjoy a spring bath.
Another park attraction is the Plum Pavilion. Built during the latter part of the Japanese occupation period, the tree-shaded pavilion offers a cool spot to relax. The pavilion has been designated by the Taipei City Government as a historic building.
