Taipei Children's Recreation Park is at truly lovely space that children truly love. I worked as an Au Pair for a little while and this was one f the children's absolute favourite places to visit. Taipei Children's Recreation Park has all of the elements of fairytale is its aethetic and the story that forms the backbone for a lot of the activities in Taipei Children's Recreation Park. The Taipei Children's Recreation Park has three different areas with three different themes. Inside the Taipei Children's Recreation Park, there is a "World of Yesterday," "World of Tomorrow," and a "World of Amusement". "World of Yesterday" visually incorporates elements from the Taiwanese and Cantonese design. "World of Tomorrow" includes an IMAX cinema. The "World of Amusement," is basically a ferris wheel. This is a great place for kids to visit because there are lots of different ways for them to interact with the space.

While the Recreation Center houses different themed parks, we visited the Amusement World, where the rides were. We traveled the to Center by Taipei's MRT. A search in the Internet would reveal ways to get there. After hopping off the train, the walk to the entrance took about 10 minutes. Entrance fee to the Center cost TWD30 per adult. It was a weekday morning, and there were very few people. Rides meant for young children were spaced out within the Amusement World's compound. There was also a children outdoor play area and a simple maze which toddlers would enjoy running about in. Older children and young adults would find the park boring. While there were a wide variety of rides, they were slow moving and very safe. A few snack shops in the park served up popcorn, ice-creams, drinks and the likes. The rides were in working condition, but a noticeable few had lost their lustre. In one area of the attraction, technicians repairing broken rides doubled up as ride operators. The lack of crowd allowed us to wander around and try out the rides at a very leisurely pace. It felt a little odd - to be in a themed park that was quiet, but the benefits far outweighed the loss of a typical themed park atmosphere.
