Da’an Forest Park
Breath of Fresh Air in the Heart of Taipei
Contrary to some other capitals in Asia, Taipei is a very green city—public parks and trees line the boulevards all around town. One of the most popular parks is the 26-hectare park in the heart of the busy Da'an District of Taipei. Like many of the other great parks of the world, such as Central Park in New York or the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the best thing to do in Da’an Park is nothing at all. Bring a picnic lunch, find a quiet bench, breathe in the scent of nearby camphor trees, and soak up the peace and quiet of the perfect pastoral getaway in Taipei.
