Travels in Longci
Mt. Huxing Recreational Park
Dakeng Leisure Farm
Surrounded by a thick forest, the Mt. Husing Recreational Park looks like a crouching tiger and is the recreational area in urban Tainan. At the park, visitors can watch sunrise and sunset. Longchuanwo will be planned as the resort area in urban Tainan.
Mt. Huxing Park sits on the mountain in front of the valley. Mt. Huxing is named so because it looks like a crouching tiger. Natural landscapes include green forests and a deep valley. The Mt. Huxing Bridge (suspension bridge) is another major attraction. The Mt. Huxing Park is the first scenic area and recreational park in the district. Walking on the suspension bridge and looking down the deep valley and the cliff on the opposite site, one will find the scene stunning. As this bridge measuring 115m long and 1.5m wide attracts many young lovers to talk about their romance, it is also called the “Lovers’ Bridge”. As a great place for hiking and recreation, the park has a big Taiwan acacia forest and a trail meandering along the mountain.
Lacquer trees were grown in the area by the colonial government. With the concern and concerted efforts of past mayors and magistrates, the Mt. Huxing Park has become a scenic and recreational forest park occupying an area of nearly five hectares with a play area for children, pavilions, a lotus pond, the original Mt. Huxing Bridge and a red suspension bridge. After the greening of its parking lot and trails, the entire park is lush and gorgeous. We hope that tourists can linger here and indulge in the delights of Mt. Huxing Park.
