Butterflies dance in the winter breeze Nice to watch butterflies at Jiannan Butterfly Eco-education Park

“Jiannan Butterfly Eco-education Park” is located by the Miramar Ferris Wheel. With convenient traffic, it is just 5 minutes’ walk from Jiannan Road Station, MRT Wenhu Line. It is a different butterfly park because there aren’t any screen houses there. Although there aren’t any butterflies dancing over your head, they fly freely in an open plan living space. The Geotechnical Engineering Office, Public Works Department, Taipei City Government highly recommends this scenic spot, where you can see the Miramar Ferris Wheel and Taipei 101. All the landscapes in the Taipei Basin can all be captured there. Being so magnificent, it is a popular setting for many famous TV series.
Jiannan Butterfly Eco-education Park aims to create an ecological landscape and restore the habitat for butterflies. With the help of the volunteers of Taiwan Butterfly Conservation Society, indigenous Taiwan food plants for butterflies and nectar plants are planted. Now, it has become an ideal place for schools at different districts to conduct ecological tours and outings. It is also a nice hiking spot for people.
Ms. Sun Shu-Hsia, the head of the Forest Recreation Section of the Geotechnical Engineering Office expressed that in addition to butterfly watching, the Geotech Office also installed ecological ponds, an entrance image of the caterpillar landscape, and other leisure facilities in the park. There are also self-guided tour posts to give people an understanding and more knowledge about butterflies when visiting there during their leisure time.
Mr. Hu Wen-hua, the chairman of the Taiwan Butterfly Conservation Society, expressed that the park will hold two free of charge guided tours to Jiannan Butterfly Eco-education Park at the weekends of November 5 and December 3.
