Chiang Kai-shek Shilin Residence Park 士林官邸公園

Anchor point


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.

    Lovely Garden


    We passed by in this garden due to the beatiful reviews we've read about it. Unluckily, it was not the season of the blooming of flowes. However, you can still sense the beauty of it and its landscape. Adding to that is the beautiful mountain in the background. The residences around here are so lucky to enjoy this lovely garden.

    If you want to enjoy the beautiful flower scenery, you are right here. The planting configuration here is very rich. You can come here to see the amazing planting sculptures. There are a variety of shapes that are truly amazing. It is a great visual experience. If you want to enjoy the beautiful flower scenery, you are right here.

    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.
