The Re-Evolution of Taitung Forest Park
tourists to Taitung. The Agriculture Department of the County pointed out
that the construction of barrier-free facilities and the scenic lookouts were
completed recently, and the flower trellis tunnel on the bicycle route has also been
eased. In addition, in order to provide more types of services, adding a tourist
service and education center has also been planned in 2019.
Taitung Forest Park covers an area of about 300 hectares and was managed
and kept as the national protective forest
by the Forestry Bureau of the Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan. The
Agriculture Department has recently completed the first application for the
use of five lands which are about 115 hectares of land for free. The Director of
the Agriculture Department Hsu Jui-kui pointed out that the principle of using
the forest park is low-level development, which means that we will not build
additional houses but change existing buildings to multi-functional spaces.
Therefore, on the first floor of the forestry office, it is planned to add a
tourist service and education center for providing travel information, displaying
agricultural products, and offering
education and other information.
