On my last day in Taipei, I didn't have any plans for sightseeing, so I just grabbed some wonton noodles at a nearby spot, then headed to Daan Forest Park to chill out and wait for my airport time. The park is huge, super clean, with plenty of benches and pavilions for folks to relax. There are a few ponds in the park, with the largest one being a haven for lots of birds like herons and cranes — their calls echoed all around. Plus, there were some cheeky squirrels and brave pigeons getting up close with people. Near one corner of the park is the Daan MRT Station, a big one, with a nice café outside. Just roll your luggage into the station, hop on the train to Beimen Station or Taipei Main Station, then head straight to Taoyuan Airport—super convenient. Saying goodbye to Taipei with a refreshing morning in the park was just perfect.

What a beautiful park.

Really well set out with lots of shady spaces and benches, as well as a huge kids park, ball games area etc. We watched people doing thai Chi too.

The flower borders and tree areas are lovely, as is the main pond. So many birds!

So much to see and space to relax.

If you are into birds, then this is a park you should visit. We walked so many trails and yet only saw a small portion of the park. The flowers in bloom were just unbelievable. A great place to spend several hours in beautiful surroundings.

I liked the big statue of Guan Yin that people sometimes stop and pray at while they are jogging. It's a nice little park that people seem to enjoy a lot. It's a real asset to the the city. There are even bird watchers with their cameras set up, but there did not seem to be many birds at the pond. Maybe they were just photographing each other. :P

We chanced upon this park and the free jazz festival happening at the time. The park is a little oasis, the musicians were great. Free seating too. Bravo.

If you need a few hours to recharge after pounding the pavements of Taipei this is a nice place for a break. Head for the lake. There is an abundance of bird life to watch and listen, plenty of turtles basking in the sun and fish swimming. A real pretty spot.

It was refreshing by walking along paths where many people exercised. Trees and flowers are vivid whereas they conduct cares and maintenance and so, visitors can feel morning air.

Not the most stunning of parks but there were plenty of paths, benches, trees and lots of people having picnics. I was here for the birds and what a fabulous place for bird watching. Highly recommend a wander through here.

Big open green space. Plenty of benches and sitting areas for a rest/picnic. Lots of birds in the big lake in the middle to watch.
Lots of local elderly doing their exercises here.
