Witness a Sea of Lavender at Neishuangxi Nature Center

With spring very much in the air, the lavender and iris at Neishuangxi Nature Center are in full bloom. Together, these plants have transformed the park into a rich canvas of purple.

Last November, approximately 12,000 strands spanning 4 different types of lavender were introduced to the Yikang Park of the Center. The Center invites the public to come and enjoy the splendor of these violet flowers and the healing effect they have upon both the body and the mind.

According to Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) Director Huang Li-yuan, Neishuangxi Nature Center has been devoted to environmental education since 2008. The only forest-type nature center in Taipei, the facility was certified as one of Taipei’s 11 eco education venues by Environmental Protection Administration in 2013.

In addition to an encounter with the breathtaking landscape, GEO also recommends residents to sign up for some 80 classes available this year at the Center. The venue is open from 9 AM to 4 PM daily. Admission is free between March 28 and April 5.
