Yangmingshan National Park
Yang Ming Park is located in the north of Beitou. Yang Ming Shan was called Tsaoshan (Grass Mountain) during Japanese occupation of Taiwan, because it was covered with grass and seldom visited. After World War II, the KMT government renamed the mountain Yang Ming Shan and built a park here. Yang Ming Park is the only park in Taiwan that has volcanic geography and hot springs. It is next to Sha Mao Shan and Chi Hsing Shan with Ta Tun Shan on the right and Kuan Yin Shan in front. The magnificent mountainous scenery and comfortable weather have made Yang Ming Park a perfect summer resort. Total area of the park is 125 hectares, designed in traditional Chinese style. The natural beauty of the part has won it the reputation as urban forest and the Taipei garden.
