Xiangshan Park 象山公園

Located at Lane 150, Section 5, Xinyi Road, beside Exit 2 of MRT Xiangshan Station, the Park used to be a military firing range. After the firing range moved away, the site was converted to a strip-shaped Park built along the foot of Xianshan (Elephant Mountain). With shady trees, chirping birds and fragrant flowers, the Park has become a popular spot for morning joggers. 
The noteworthy feature of the Park is that it is the only location in the City where tree frogs can be spotted. Taipei tree frog (Rhacophorus taipeianus) is a protected species endemic to Taiwan, with its size ranging between 3 and 5 cm and in different colours like yellow and green. It was discovered and named in 1978 by Prof Wang Chin-Jan of National Taiwan University. The tree frog sanctuary is located at the northeast corner of Zhongqiang Park. To provide tree frogs with a protected, sustainable habitat in Zhongqiang Park, Giant Elephant’s Ear and Ginger Lily are planted, alongside native species such as Tuberous Sword Fern, Cretan Brake Fern, Chinese Taro, Common Tree Fern and Bird’s Nest Fern; furthermore, a water pump was installed at the sanctuary to supply a fixed amount of water to the tree frog natural reserve, to preserve its wetland condition and thereby ensure habitat sustainability.

    Small park - nothing more or less


    Small park which you'll walk through if you want to go to the elephant mountain. Nothing major but I'd imagine it'll be a nice place to hang around when the construction around it is done and when the sun is out.

    Very relaxing and spacious


    It is a beautifully done park with loads of space and a play area for the kids to spend their battery. There is a skating rink and a basketball court attached. A good place for a walk, picnic and some meditation. It is under renovation and thus closed though at the moment.

    An ordinary little park.


    This is an ordinary little park, with not that much uniqueness. It serves mainly as the starting point to a strenuous ‪Elephant Mountain walking trail. While hardly "an attraction" on its own right, its worth a 5-minute visit.

    Elephant Mountain hike


    Hike up Elephant mountain. It was a breezy humid day. It was very peaceful, very few people on the trail. The scenery is very beautiful.
