Chenguang Bridge is located inside New Taipei Metropolitan Park in Sanchong District and is a new scenery bridge that has just begun its operation at yearend 2018. Chenguang Bridge connects the opposite banks of Erchong Floodway, and the design has been inspired by the mythical love story of the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl. With a double-layered double-curvature bridge platforms that are overlapped to create the overall structure of the scenery terraces, the winding Chenguang Bridge simply mimics the Milky Way that symbolizes the path where the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl reunite. In addition to the distinctive design of the bridge flooring, romantic constellation light sculpture can also be seen at night after the lights are illuminated!

Being the first water-friendly scenic bridge that is exclusively for pedestrians and bikers’ resting and crossing use, Chenguang Bridge owns the view of a scenic river, water-playing carpet, resting plaza for light meals, beautified greens, 5 nighttime constellation light sculpture, 3 accessible elevators, 4 ramped approach lanes, and 7 “milky way and magpie (from the story of the Cowherd and the Seamstress)” canopies for people to take a bird’s eye view of the splendid views from New Taipei Metropolitan Park during day and night.
