Taiwan’s endemic animals are integrated into the themes by transforming themselves into large recreational facilities, such as Mikado pheasant stone slide, Formosan blue magpie climbing net, Formosan landlocked salmon climbing base and Formosan black bear swing. The commentary boards by the side introduce each animal’s name, characteristics and size, so that the public can gain knowledge while having fun. The opposite side of the boards describe in detail the suitable age and precautions for using the recreational facilities, ensuring a safe environment for children while they explore the fun and challenging facilities.

Former Residence of Weng Shan-Ying (Jiufen Teahouse)
The former residence of Weng Shan-Ying is currently used as Jiufen Teahouse, and majority of the original spatial layout has been preserved. The building structure itself is made of stone mixed with wood, which appears aesthetically unsophisticated. The front is of one storey which enters into a two-storey area in the back, with the indoor space maintaining its original looks, the space is filled with changes while preserving the traditional architectural spatial layout. For the renovated area, many ingenious ideas can be seen in its spatial applications, where besides preserving the original characteristics, the flexibility demonstrated by the building itself is also increased, allowing this residence with close to a century of history still able to demonstrate its unique style.
