Dajia Riverside Park to Celebrate Moon Festival with Flower Spectacle

Dajia Riverside Park to Celebrate Moon Festival with Flower Spectacle

With Mid-Autumn Festival and the Double Ten Day approaching, the Hydraulic Engineering Office (HEO) invites the public to visit Dajia Riverside Park and immerse themselves in a vast sea of flowers during the holidays.

HEO noted that it deployed 700,000 pots of plants at the park during the 2017 Taipei Universiade as part of the effort to beautify the surrounding landscape. An additional 100,000 units of plants were on standby in the event of adverse weather conditions (such as typhoons or soaring temperatures) damaging the delicate flowers.

The backup plants – consisting of varieties of angelonia, zinnia, celosia, and other summer flowers – can be arranged to form vibrant color bands complementing the main sea of flowers of Dajia Riverside Park. Spanning an area of 3,000 square meters, the sea of flowers is expected to remain in full bloom until mid-October.

In addition to the vast floral carpet, Dajia Riverside Park also boasts mosaic art walls, aquatic fun area, sandpit playground, hope fountain, and immense area of greens. Families can spend some quality time at the recreational venue during the upcoming holidays.
