Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park
The Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park is a Chinese-style garden that occupies 25 hectares of space. It is an important venue in the cultural landscape of Taipei City, a point of interest for tourists to visit and residents to spend leisure time.
The park itself is a diverse ecological system. A plethora of trees, shrubs, flowers, and ground cover plants fill the grounds. The foliage changes with each season, meaning the scenery of the park is ever changing.
Be sure as well to take note of all the different animals that make their homes in this space. The eco-friendly environment attracts such birds as Moorhens, Black-crowned Night Herons, Malaysian Night Herons, and Japanese White-Eyes, and cute, lively Formosan Red-bellied Tree Squirrels are also seen prancing about.
The majestic Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall archway stands 30 meters tall and 80 meters wide. The primary structure is made from white concrete, meant to resemble pure-white marble. The archway is comprised of 5 entryways, 6 pillars, and 11 roofs. This 5-6-11 configuration means that this archway is of the highest rank according to the traditional Chinese architectural classification system. The roof features layered dougong (bracket sets) and Chinese blue-glazed roof tiles.
