Top Choice for People with Mediocre Incomes- The Shuidui Park

It is time to make some changes! Find your partner to experience different holiday activities and make some sweet memories that will increase the affection. The Shuidui Park is located in the suburban area of Taipei City therefore it is convenient for people to get to the Park. The reason we strongly recommend you to come is the design of the Park is one of a kind. The Park goes up "level by level" , and the view on the platform on the top is amazing. You are able to see the whole New Taipei City on the platform. Besides, the night view there won't be less than the view on the top of Taipei 101. Simply bring your brewed coffee and handmade food here and you can have a special and romantic meal. The Shuidui Park has become a landmark for affectional bonding!

The area of the Shuidui Park is 10.50 hectare, including a healthy hiking trail, biking trail, jogging trail and 3 other trails. Trees are planted along the trails for people to enjoy the shades while hiking on the trails in summer time. Moreover, there are 7 named pavilions at the Park. People visiting the Park can enjoy the phytoncide before enjoying the amazing view!

The most special thing about the Shuidui Park is that the Park is constructed beside the mountains. Centered on the mountain peak and the Park is built into a fan-shape layout. The closer you are to the mountain peak, the narrower the stair you step on is. Another special design is the slope design. On the slope you will find 10 levels with a large numbered installation art on each level. The joy of collecting the number of the installation art will help you forget the exhaustion of hiking! Besides, a pavilion is constructed on each level. The Park is suitable for children and elders to walk around at ease.

Surprisingly, the 6th level has the best view at the Park. The platform on this level is spacious. The exercise equipment is established on the platform, and the creative letter chair of "SDWUGU" that Internet celebrities love is also established. The armrest table in the front is where you can take a sip of coffee and have some snacks. (Remember to bring the trash with you when you leave!)
