To me, this is very average. Seems more like a nice neighbourhood park that you'll do your evening strolls in. The tower is ordinary. There are some old guns around the building like many forts do. Just another check box in the travel itinerary

I visited Chihkan Tower as the sun was setting and it was beautiful. It was a nice, relatively quiet place to visit at that time too.

West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the
busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the

variety of street food. In addition to that, this
district also has the highest number of temples. This
is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic
buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example,
Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan
