    Daan forest park – A spacious botanical beauty, eclectic & friendly locals !

    2019-12

    Daan forest park – A spacious botanical beauty – quite a lot of inner-city wildlife…. They can lay claim to the forest name as the perimeter is heavily wooded makes sense because on all four sides are very busy roads but once you pass though the perimeter woods it opens in a huge variety of garden spaces. A people’s park, had some quite ingenious touches such as the water theme area for fitness and as you ride the bikes or step machines they generate water sprays through design of pipes an interesting concept but smart the harder you rode the quicker the water gushed from the pipes . I saw some interesting wildlife the Malaysian night heron strut very slowly about neck cranking forward eventually diving into the brush to secure a meal pulling out a very healthy thick worm a little further along the way there was an beautiful and vast pond a haven for a variety wildlife I first went over to where a group of Asian ladies were all looking down into the water a d found there were some lovely large carp of one kind or another my polaroid glasses actually filtered out the light and I could witness the fish in far better detail I offered my glasses for the ladies to have a look and they really enjoyed the closer view people in this park were happy the atmosphere created harmony and gentle camaraderie. Over the other side of the pond there was a big family of turtles from babies to full grown adults all sunning themselves and just generally roaming around there idleness and slow movement reflective of the peace slow motion pace of Daan Forest park. If you’re staying in busy cosmopolitan downtown Daan District Taipei I believe this is really nice surrogate backyard with an array of eclectic & friendly local residents.

    Walking distance from Yong Kang Street (~5 minutes) Good place to chill after a meal at Yong Kang Street Nice greenery, quite clean, wide age range of people Lots of squirrels Several different paths, good to keep track using the map at each exit, especially if wishing to exit at a particular exit Good walk if the weather is not too hot

    Nothing special here but nice to see the locals and what they get up to in the park. Also saw some red bellied squirrels. Lots of clean public toilets too.
