In this article we will visit Shin Fong Park, in Shin Fong, of course!
This park has a lot of tree cover, but in the shaded area there isn’t anywhere to sit except for that one stone table and the benches showed 2 shots above. Due to the shade, the ground in this part of the park has become denuded.
At the far end is another section with more seating areas. Unfortunately this park appears to appeal to the passive nature of recreation that seems to be the norm in Taiwan – that being there are many places to sit and do nothing.
We drove around to the back side of the park and found a smaller section with a walking path. The main park area appears to be mostly wasted space to me. There is a center plastic playset and nothing much else. The problem with the layout is that while it’s pretty large overall, the playset being in the middle makes it really difficult to play games in the park. So again, except for mothers bringing very small children to the plastic playset, I don’t see much activity going on here.
I have another park in Shin Fong that I’ll show you next time.
