Walking forward from Pinglin Old Street, one will go pass “Pinglin Elementary School” and “Bao Ping Temple” - the key belief of the Pinglin people; the most special part is that the old street is filled with strong tea aroma, attracting many barn swallows to stop for a smell, and swallow nests can be seen in almost all of the surrounding residences, even exceeding the local population, thereby becoming the genuine “Barn Swallow City”.

Under the Huazhong Bridge, there's a large Dinosaur Park; since the Huazhong Bridge 3D paintings were launched in 2014, Taiwan's only one Dinosaur Park next to Riverside Bike Path has been planned. It's a place of amazing art installations for taking amazing photos, including little tyrannosaurus, triceratops, little stegosaurus, dinosaur egg, and a hanging pterosaur overlooking the area.

Jingtong Coal Memorial Park
Situated not far above the Jingtong Train Station, the site is a present-day tourist attraction, inside which visitors can see the masonry of the mine portal, or take photographs of bizarrely convoluted tree roots amidst a lush greenery. A stroll through the park will take you to Jingtong back in the old days.
