TAIPEI (Taiwan News) –“Yuanshan Natural Landscape Park,” which is built on the site of former Taipei Children’s Amusement Park (兒童樂園), is open to the public on June 15.

The park preserves the ferris wheel and merry-go-round to remind visitors of the merriment the park had provided their young customers.

The amusement park was built at Yuanshan in 1934 during Japanese rule. It had an area of only three hectares when it was first opened and was Taiwan’s earliest public children’s park. The park is a fond memory for many Taipei citizens.

Taipei Children’s Amusement Park was later enlarged to cover an area of 9.8 hectares, and its name was changed to Taipei Children’s Recreation Center (臺北市立兒童育樂中心). After 80 years of service, Taipei Children’s Recreation Center was relocated to Shilin District.    [FULL  STORY]
