The S-shaped bridge flooring offers a spacious passage area. Under the sun, the Keelung River looks especially clear and calm; along with the white clouds in the sky, the bridge itself over the River, the Zhongshan Overpass that goes across the Bridge’s north end, and even the carefree white egrets near the low grass by the River are all reflected in the water, creating unique scenery.

National Taipei University Arts Boulevard
Development in the area surrounding the Sanxia campus of National Taipei University is occurring rapidly. Beautiful residential sky rises are cropping up, with spacious roads and heavy tree cover, but what is most astounding is the 1.2-kilometer-long pedestrian arts boulevard that was built in front of the row of homes on Xueqin Road, starting by the university’s main entrance.
The reason for the name Wanggu, according to literature and legend, is that during the Xianfeng period (1831-1861) Hu Jie from Quanzhou started an open coal mine. After the pit had been exhausted it filled with water, and the Chinese name “Wangkuangkeng” (old mine pit) changed into “Wanggukeng” (ancient pit).In the early days, few people settled in this barren land, which later became cultivated as Pingxi District. Both Wanggu Station and Dahua Station, formerly known as Qinghe Station, were set up in 1972 to serve the coal miners, but they were train-hailing stations before that.
