Take Your Pets for a Walk- the Qinqingchongwu Park in Xindian
Living in the city jungle, people can easily feel pressured by the dense buildings and thus feel more anxious. Your pets spend most of the time at home and they have to step on the hard paved road even when taking a walk outside. Dogs are always waiting for their owners to get off from work and come home, and we can only spend so much time with them. As a result, we strongly recommend you take your pets out on weekends! There are actually quite a few parks for pets in New Taipei City, and the park we are now introducing is the "Qinqingchongwu Park" in Xindian. At this Park, you will find a spacious area of grass land and dogs no longer have to be on the leash here. They can run at the Park freely to finally have a relaxing time!

The "Qinqingchongwu Park" in Xindian is the first park for pets built on the floodplain. The Park has a great area of 300 hectares. The "Qinqingchongwu Park" in Xindian is located between the east side of Bitan and the Sunshine Sports Park. The original purpose of building a riverside park is to provide people with a multi-functional place where they can do exercise. You and your family and friends can have fun, walk around, do exercise, fly a kite or just chill to appreciate the beauty of the river on the grass land at the river bank. Now, you can bring your pets to the Qinqingchongwu Park to play and exert energy. How great is that!

The best part of a riverside park is that it has a great area of green grass land. You will feel comfortable in this spacious space simply by staring at it! At the entrance you can see a clear sign telling you the Park is separated into 2 sections, a section for small dogs and the other for larger dogs. Pet owners can choose to enter either section based on the size of their pets. This way, dogs can move freely in a safer environment. Besides, we put dog poop bag in the Park. Therefore, you don't have to worry about leaving dog poop in the Park if your dog gets to excited and poop. Use the plastic bag to pick up the poop and throw it in the near garbage can. Be a public-spirited person and pick up after your dog to leave other users a clean environment.

Do Not Forget to Read the Notices. Everyone Should Work Together to Maintain the Park for Pets!
Let's get ready to have fun at the Park! Notices are written on the door at the entrance. Remember to read the notices before coming into the Park and be a responsible owner to follow the rules. Let's maintain this Park for pets together!

There are 2 layers of devices on the fence at the entrance/exit at the back. The devices are established to prevent dogs from losing controls and rushing into the Park when they get too excited. Therefore, remember to put a leash on your pets when going in and coming out from the Park. And pay attention to see if there is any dog coming out! There are dog poop cleaning bag and garbage can at the entrance. Please clean up after your dog to maintain a clean environment and prevent your dogs from stepping on the poop while running.

The section for small dogs is a little bit smaller than the other section. Benches are put in the section for you to rest. Devices, such as tire obstacle training devices, wooden plank slopes, jumping platforms, are set up in the section for larger dogs for them to exert their energy. When first seeing the device, dogs might get a bit nervous and afraid, owners should be patient to guide and encourage your dogs. After some practices, your dogs will start to enjoy it!

Your dogs spend most of the time at home and it is rare for them to see one of their kinds. Bring your dogs to the Park would be a great choice. The Park offers enough space for dogs to run on the grass land to train their physical strength, and dogs can meet different people and dogs at the Park. Dogs will smell each other and play together. It presents a great chance for dogs to have some social activities. Remember to observe the body language of your dog nearby and provide intervention as appropriate.

When the weather is good, bring your dogs to the "Qinqingchongwu Park" in Xindian and have fun! At the Park, you pets can finally be free from the leash and step on the comfortable grass land. They can run and be relaxed freely. Their smile will be the most beautiful scene.

Tamsui-Kavalan Trails: Hand-made trails, documentaries, and books
The Tamsui-Kavalan Trails were an important mountain trail network that spanned across the Taipei Basin and Lanyang Plain during the Qing Dynasty. They played a crucial role in transportation between these two points before the TRA launched the Yilan Line. The Tamsui-Kavalan Trails should not be regarded simply as a “route” connecting Tamsui Subprefecture and Kavalan Subprefecture. Instead, over the past 200 years or so, the northern section of Xueshan (Xue Mountain) has held invaluable historical memories, including indigenous hunting paths, the footprints of Han people, trading posts, and military patrols. Countless ancestors traversed these dozens of intricate and meandering mountain paths. The Tamsui-Kavalan Trails also bore witness to the development of Taipei City, New Taipei City, Keelung, and Yilan, and can be regarded as Taiwan's pilgrimage route. Today, it has been designated as a “National-Level Green Trail”.2015 and 2016 – “Reappearing the Centuries-Old Tamsui-Kavalan Trails”After the advent of railways and national freeways, the entire world underwent a significant transportation revolution. The Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, which had lost their original transportation function, gradually faded from public view. Nevertheless, for over a century, they have quietly existed within the mountainous region between Taipei and Yilan. Since 2015 and 2016, the Taiwan Thousand Miles Trail Association has collaborated with Taipei City, New Taipei City, Keelung, and Yilan across multiple counties and cities in the joint effort of the “Reappearing the Centuries-Old Tamsui-Kavalan Trails” project. By reviewing literature, maps, interviews, and other sources of information, the Taiwan Thousand Miles Trail Association has obtained the initial route background and, in conjunction with historical, cultural, landscape, recreational system, safety, and other considerations, designed the systematic Tamsui-Kavalan trail routes we have today. It has also adopted the twin-bristle fern as the identifying symbol, establishing the brand of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails.Combining public and private resources, the government and civilians collaborated to progressively restore these ancient trails using the handcrafted trail method. The concept of handcrafted trails relies not on heavy machinery and construction contractors, but employs simple tools and locally sourced materials instead. Through the participation of volunteers, a collective effort has been made to restore the trails, ensuring their harmonious integration into the existing landscape while preserving the essence of the original cultural pathways. After years of dedicated work, the centuries-old Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, with their rich and enduring history, have been rejuvenated.2018 – “Tamsui-Kavalan Trails Trilogy”To promote the ecology and culture of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, the Tourism and Travel Department of the New Taipei City Government collaborated with the internationally acclaimed Director Xiao Qing-yang. They traversed the northern, central, and southern sections of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, resulting in the creation of the "Tamsui-Kavalan Trails Trilogy". Director Xiao Qing-yang, through his work spanning from "The Tao of Kung Fu" and "The Tao of Ancestors" to "The Tao of Health" within these centuries-old trails, orchestrated live performances by traditional opera musicians and captured the sounds of nature, including insect chirping, bird calls, and the flowing river water. This endeavor beautifully illustrates the multifaceted vitality of these historical trails.The “Tamsui-Kavalan Trails Trilogy” was honored with the first prize in the Sports and Leisure category at the 14th ART & TUR – International Tourism Film Festival in 2021. In 2023, the original soundtrack album “Beginningless Beginning” produced for “Tamsui-Kavalan Trails Trilogy” achieved a remarkable feat by winning the Best Recording Package award at the 65th Grammy Awards, propelling Tamsui-Kavalan Trails onto the international stage2019 – “Tamsui-Kavalan Trails – The Northern Section”The first travel guidebook for the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, titled "Tamsui-Kavalan Trails – The Northern Section", was brought to life through the combined efforts of the Taiwan Thousand Miles Trail Association, historians, and mountaineering experts who possess an intimate knowledge of these trails. After meticulous planning and 18 months of dedicated compilation, the guidebook was officially launched. The book provides insights into the cultural history, town stories, flora and fauna ecology, along with recommended routes along the northern section. Its high-quality layout garnered immediate acclaim upon release, and to date, it has undergone five printings. Many travelers set out on the northern section of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails with this book in hand to experience these historic trails step by step, and craft their own unique stories along the way.2020 – The website themed on the Tamsui-Kavalan TrailsA website themed on the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails was developed relying on the smart technology. This innovative UI/UX interactive trail map simplifies the intricate network of trails within the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails. From users' perspective, this website integrates and interfaces information related to pre-trip preparations, itinerary planning, GPX data, transportation, weather, and rest stops. Easily capture all types of hiking information, and comprehensively explore the abundant history, culture, humanities and ecology of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails.2022 – “Tamsui-Kavalan Trails – The Long and Slow Journey through Centuries-Old Satoyama”Following the publication of the acclaimed "Tamsui-Kavalan Trails – The Northern Section", the Tourism and Travel Department of the New Taipei City Government once again collaborated with several experts of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails to introduce the book "Tamsui-Kavalan Trails – The Long and Slow Journey through Centuries-Old Satoyama". This book portrays the travel experiences along the northern, central, and southern sections of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, along with visits to the stories of 22 local artisans and businesses within the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails. It includes a practical hiking guide for the entire route and exquisite photographs.

It also includes the stories behind the planning and branding of the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails, with the hope of embarking on the next century together.The Tourism and Travel Department of the New Taipei City Government has successfully promoted the Tamsui-Kavalan Trails for many years.
