With a-hundred-year history, Taichung Park is not only the favorite place for lovers dating, but also the best site for taking wedding photos. At the front gate of the Park, the concentric circle formed by 2 hearts has witnessed numerous love vows of new couples. Associated with the 2007 Happy City and Romantic Taichung, the hosting institute, the Information Bureau of Taichung City Government redecorated the concentric circle with romantic-symbolic roses; in the City it is the best spot for romantic proposals and taking wedding photos , as well as the paramount romantic symbol.
2007 Happy City and Romantic Taichung was set for the goal of introducing all of the romantic spots, best dating and proposal sites to denizens. Director General Chen, Yong-Fong, explained that Taichung Park, an historical site over-one-hundred years old, had provided the setting for people’s many romantic memories and has remained popular for lovers; therefore, the rose decoration on the concentric circle of the front gate would add more romantic stories and further create a symbolic meaning for the City’s image.
Built in 1903, Taichung Park is the only one preserved since the Japanese governance period, with the geometric-style delicate double pavilions and reflection among red roofs, white walls, lake waves, and green trees. Inside the Park, emerald forests and green grass reveal a natural and tranquil landscape rarely found in a busy city, and many lovers select rowing in the lake or walking on the green to spend their romantic afternoon hours, accompanied by flowers and bird songs.
