Bangka Park 艋舺公園

Previously known as Park No. 12 located in the Wanhua District, the sprawling Bangka Park next to Longshan Temple is enclosed by Guangzhou St., Heping W. Rd., Sanshui St. and Xiyuan Rd. Developed by the Taipei City Government, it is a distinctively art-themed “folklore park” teeming with culturally significant details. For example, a dragon-inspired sculpture in the Park’s east side is inspired by a Chinese Feng Shui rule for good luck, being an azure dragon appearing on the left-hand side when facing south, while a boat sculpture in the west side recount a bit of history of the early settlers in the neighborhood who used canoes as a common means of transportation, ferrying and trade. Adjacent to a pond named “Beauty’s Mirror” is a viewing platform defined by Feng Shui principles in accordance with the position of the Big Dipper constellation, where illuminated “dancing water” shows are staged on a daily basis. After sunset, the Temple Gateway Square, an extension of the Longshan Temple into the Park’s north side, sees over 2,000 stars simultaneously radiating lights of varying colors from an astrological chart that consists of both Chinese and Western zodiac signs. Meanwhile, the roof tile-like structure of reinforced glass and vitreous enamel panels transforms the Park’s inverted U-shaped art gallery into a passageway with recreation and exhibition facilities. As an important public project in the City Government’s campaign of “Rotating the Axis of Urban Development and Regenerating Taipei West”, Bangka Park, along with its neighboring Longshan Temple, will hopefully blossom into a vibrant international tourist hotspot of historical, cultural and religious importance that buttresses western Taipei’s growth and business potential, and ultimately regains the glory of this two-century-old neighborhood.

    龍山寺前の噴水のある公園です。

    龍山寺とMRT龍山寺駅の間の噴水のある公園です。美人照鏡池の勢い全開の噴水ショーが見れたらラッキーです。

    龍山寺門前にある公園です。公園と言っても緑はあまりなく広場といった方が正しいかもしれません。老人たちがタバコを吹かしたり、中国将棋に興じたり思い思いに時間を過ごしています。ただ、危ないことはありません。

    老人の憩いの場?

    2017-02

    艋舺公園はMRTの龍山寺駅と台北の古刹龍山寺との間に有る一区画まるまる公園に成っている広場で年齢層が高めの方々の憩いの場に成っています。 公園といっても緑や木々や花々が多いイメージで訪問するとがっくりするかも、ここは石畳が敷かれている広場になります。 ベンチや休憩所はあちこちに有って皆さん寛いでいます。 老人の社交場と化しててそれらを観察するのが面白いです。

    早朝から集まっている人たち…

    2017-10

    MRT龍山寺駅から地上に出て龍山寺に向かう際、公園を抜けて行く事になります。早朝から深夜まで何をしているのか分からないような人が集まっており、余り近付きたく無い雰囲気を醸し出していました。わざわざ園内を抜けなくても道路脇の歩道、若しくはMRT龍山寺駅から地下道を通って行く方が良さそうでした。

    人潮很多,群眾聚集 但是多為遊民 雖然大多友善 但是環境較為髒亂 而且在晚上 偶爾會見到直接在公園上演18禁的行為
