Tainan Science Park (台南科學園區) is one of southern Taiwan’s most important high-tech science parks. The concept behind its development is coexistence with nature and ecology, and the entire site is full of greenery and lush with vegetation. The park’s numerous ecologically rich flood basin, Siraya Square (西拉雅廣場) with its unique ethnic style, a host of exciting art installations, plus the ecology conservation area make Tainan Science Park resemble a natural ecological art museum.
Tourists who visit the Science Park often take lakeside walks by the site’s 3 ecological lakes, Daoye Lake (道爺湖), Xiake Lake (霞客湖) and Yinxi Lake (迎曦湖), where they can see different landscapes and large flocks of birds feeding. Other popular features of the park include the cable-stayed footbridge over Siraya Boulevard (西拉雅大道) and its adjacent art installations, as well as a large dragon sculpture at Yinxi Lake.
The cute stylized Formosan dog figures in front of the park management offices give a sense of life and fun to the solemn-looking administrative building, and make for a perfect photo opportunity for guests.
