台中公園Taichung Park

台中公園創立於1903年10月28日,舊稱「中山公園」,於西元2000年正式名為「台中公園」。
台中公園擁有都會中難得的清幽,佔地約32889坪。其「台中市地標」的象徵性地位,始終屹立不搖。被台中市政府列為市定古蹟的湖心亭,是1908年時「台灣縱貫鐵路全通式」的開通紀念,而古稱「大墩」的砲台山,則是台中市發祥的起點。
備註:地圖所示中山公園處即為「台中公園」位置。
Taichung Park is the oldest park in Taichung city. Built in the Japanese-ruling era and with a space of 10 acres, the park base at that time was the garden, named Ruixuan and actually donated by the Lin family in Wufeng, together with the old Beimen Building. Taichung Park features many pretty landscapes, such an artificial lake, pavilion, arch bridge, etc. There are also lots of recreational equipments, like outdoor stadium, playground, and tennis court. Some extraordinary European-style building and Houxing Pavilion were constructed in 1908 in celebration of the launch of the Taiwan Railway stretching from north to south in Taiwan. Houxing Pavilion has also been the symbol of Taichung City since the Japanese-ruling era and it’s hence officially declared as a city-designated historical site in 1999.
