The feet soaking pond at Quanyuan Park is currently closed for repair and will be reopened to the public on November 21 (reopening time may come earlier if work is complete ahead of schedule).
Known for its sulfurous qualities, the hot springs of Beitou District has a great appeal for tourists visiting Taipei. However, the high sulfur content of the hot spring water also damages wells and pipelines in the surroundings.
After receiving reports of likely water clogging at the hot spring well inside Quanyuan Park which resulted in low water supply hampering operations, a group of experts were invited to the site to conduct assessment on November 13. Following initial assessment and work planning, the city government announced that the facility will be closed for a 7-day period to undergo repair works.
