Monday:08:00 - 19:00




he CKS Shilin Residence Park is located in Shilin District, to the southeast of where Section 5, Zhongshan N. Road and Fulin Road meet. Surrounded by the Fushan hills, this 9.28-hectare park was named after the late R.O.C. President Chiang Kai-shek, who lived on its premises in 1950. It has well-preserved, enchanting scenic resources both in the outer and inner gardens, the principal room, the greenhouse for potted orchids, the rose garden, Victory Chapel, the New Orchid Pavilion and the Ciyun Pavilion, due to construction projects or renovations having been prohibited in the neighborhood for national security reasons. The Chinese-style inner garden is landscaped with a stream running under an artificial bridge, rock gardens, peculiarly shaped rocks, and a red-painted Chinese summerhouse, whereas the European-style outer garden with carpet bed of exuberant flowers, serves as a theme venue for the annual chrysanthemum exhibitions. The rose garden features 200 species and 4,000-odd plants with roses of varied hues during the peak blooming period from November through April, and was Madame Chiang’s favorite location for leisurely strolls. While the Chiang family was baptized in a Christian ceremony and held worship services in the Victory Chapel, the New Orchid Pavilion (aka Longevity Pavilion) is a Chinese-style quadrangular structure built in 1950 to host Mr. Chiang’s birthday celebrations; it also serves as a venue for various orchid shows. On Mt. Fushan is the Ciyun Pavilion, a two-story square summerhouse built in memory of Mr. Chiang’s mother. After being open to the public in 1996, the CKS Shilin Residence Park has undergone many continued renovation projects to become a scenic, recreational spot in downtown Taipei with enhanced quality and quantity of services, besides brilliant zoning and construction plans.

    Beautiful park


    The park is free and quite beautiful with manicured landscapes, topiary and flowers. You can view Madame Chiang Kai-Shek's car and there is an admission fee for the house.

    Nice park and trail


    I was staying at the Renaissance Hotel which is steps away from this park. It just so happens I was on my way to the Chiang Kai-Shek residence and the largest Chrysanthemum flower festival in Taipei was going on. The flower arrangements were beautiful and colorful. The displays must have taken weeks and so much labor to set up. From what I was advised - this park has regular flower displays throughout the different seasons. Check this park especially if your en route to the CKS Residence or Shilin night market.

    Beautiful gardens in the site and nice to walk around here


    Good historical place to visit. Beautiful gardens in the site and nice to walk around here. The gardens include both Chinese and Western style horticulture. The Shilin Official Residence is the former residence of late Taiwan President Chiang Kai-shek located on Zhongshan North Road in Shilin District of Taipei. Site is open to the public and free entrance, but you need to take ticket to visit inside the residence building. Photos are not allowed inside the house. The residence is accessible within walking distance from Shilin MRT Station.
