Taitung Forest Park



Posted Unit:Administrators


The 280-hectare Taitung Forest Park at the end of Jhongshan Road is nicknamed “Black Forest”by Taitung residents for its immense dark beefwood trees. In the woods lies a serene lake fed by the gushing spring at the estuary of Beinan Creek,called Pipa (Chinese lute) Lake,because it has the shape of two connected water bodies,a small one and a large one. The scenic Pipa Lake is a habitat of aquatic animals and plants,and by the lake are a viewing platform and a cabin that overlooks the waterfowl. Visitors may enjoy the lake view on either bike routes or slat walks.

    Poorly maintained, big disappointment

    Traveler rating:2 2019-04

    I have high hope given the positive review but was very much disappointed. The park is poorly maintained. Don't think it's worth the time unless you have absolutely no where to go and want to spend a couple of hours on bike. Bike rental is available at the entrance.

    Exceptional Park, Very Unique

    Traveler rating:5 2019-01

    This park is like no other I've visited. It's both man made, and natural feeling at the same time. I recommend renting a bike and biking around because it's quite large, but you can also stroll. There are small lakes, paths out to the ocean, and other diverse landscapes. It's a beautiful spot, which I returned to every day while I was in Taitung. There is a nominal charge of 30NT to get in, but totally worth it for the hours of enjoyment the park provides.

    Absolutely stunning, Must visit!!

    Traveler rating:5 2018-12

    had a great day trip to this park. just rent a bike at the entrance and enjoy the scenery within the park. massive place, easily spent half a day there. 3 lakes within the entire area as well. bring along your own food and drinks for a picnic. easily accessible via walking from the bus station [30-45mins] otherwise grab a public bus or taxi your way there. kayaking available within as well.

    Lost Forest

    Traveler rating:4 2019-01

    Strangely this forest was destroyed and replaced by an attractionpark like concept with plenty of concrete paths and trimmed lawns. Ecologically very questionnable. Although it temains a green area
