Located in Beitou District, the former community known for its production of pineapples has been transformed into a tourist destination boasting cherry blossoms, pineapple, and a rural field by the staff of the Geotechnical Engineering Office.
 
According to the agency, the notable traits of the area include a pineapple-shaped pavilion, cherry blossom pedestrian walkway, walkway by the creek, and a fabulous location to take in a breathtaking view of the Guandu Plains.
 
Chief Chen from the agency’s Slope Conservation Section noted that the community is known for its spring cherry blossoms, nighttime city skyline, riverside ecosystem, and historical community, as well as the hot springs nearby. The pineapple-shaped pavilion and the plaza next door are known local landmarks. The creek under the bridge has undergone conservation efforts over the years, restoring the ecosystem of the surrounding.
 
Furthermore, planning a visit to the area during the months of June and July will give visitors and opportunity to try out fresh bamboo shoots. The cool and delicious entrée is sure to bring you coolness on a hot summer day.
