Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
A European-style park dotted with memorials and museums, 228 Peace Memorial Park stands in memory to the victims of one of the most horrific massacres in Taiwan’s history. Opened in 1908, the park was renamed in 1998 as a memorial for the “228” civilian massacre on February 28, 1947 by the Kuomintang government. Stroll through the leafy paths of the park’s gardens, dotted with palms, as you make your way to the memorial pavilion, reflecting on the country’s violent past. For a more thorough history, head to the park’s memorial museum or the national Taiwan museum located at the northern entrance.

  • We came here by MRT. Entrance was free and there was a fair number of locals around, but not crowded. Had a fairly nice walk around with much greenery.  more »
  • This park was once known as New Park, but now it is 2/28 Memorial Park. It is close to the Train Station. There is not much to see.  more »

  • This is one of the greatest Park I ever visited. The birds and squirrels roam freely and people are there for relaxing and enjoying nature.
  • It is a serene place to walk, sit, look at the temples. You just enjoy.
