KAOHSIUNG, TAIWAN (TraNews) – Along with the evolution of urbanization and the development of civilization, people in nowadays are trapped inside the urban jungle built of cement. Ever since the industrial revolution, many advanced countries have undergone through some changes; even until now we are still struggling with these changes. It is a bit ironic of how modern people try to seek out a spot of green land in an overcrowded city, striving to obtain a balance between civilization and nature.
Kaohsiung City, commonly known as Harbor City, used to be a heavy industrial city. In recent years, its city image has been through a gradual transformation. The Kaohsiung Central Park that has been created here underscores the city’s transformation from a grimy industrial city to a healthy and highly livable metropolis, offering the urbanites a place where they can experience a sense of tranquility and green.
The Kaohsiung Central Park is a public urban park in the heart of Kaohsiung City. The park is characterized by its beautiful greenery and recreational facilities. During the weekend, the park has become the optimal destination for a weekend escape and family outing. Walking around the park, you can see children running freely and laughing, parents watching over their kids tenderly, people jogging in the parks, dog owners walking their pets…forming into a lovely scene.
The Kaohsiung Central Park is situated at the intersection of Zhongshan Road and Wufu Road.
