228 Peace Memorial Park (二二八和平公园) – A Peace of Mind Location in Taipei
Located in the middle of the Taipei City, the 2/28 Park is a memorial park dedicated to the victims of the February 28 Incident (also known as the Taiwan White Terror event).
The park is surrounded by skyscraper buildings and has been a favourite route (shortcut) for visitors to pass thru while heading to the C.K.S Memorial Hall or National Taiwan Museum.
*In our opinion, this is a super great “Pit Stop” to rest in between any other nearby attraction from CKS Memorial Hall.
228 Peace Memorial Park (二二八和平公园) also has a different theme of landscapes for you to explore around while the majority of them are heavily covered with flowers and trees! 😉
Although there are a lot of people sitting around the park, the environment still maintains peace and quiet (like in a library).
*It is also a great place to spend a whole evening to do some book reading or some other hobbies.

Most patients from NTU Hospital also prefer to take a short stroll around this park during the evening session, if you ever meet one with a wheelchair, do show some courtesy by letting them the pathway! 😉
The cute and furry native habitat (Squirrel) easily spots (almost everywhere) in 228 Peace Memorial Park, you can tell what leisure life they are having just by looking at their size and fur coating! 😉
* They are pretty sneaky and moves fast but they do not afraid of the outsider, feel free to move closer to observe and be sure not to feed them.
