2/28 Peace Park is a pretty cool park in Taipei, Taiwan. There’s a museum, a few sculptures, and Asian influence architecture.

It reminds me of Millennium Park in Chicago but less artsy. However it’s still a great stop on your sightseeing agenda. It’s a couple of blocks from Taipei Main Station. It’s also a few blocks from the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. It’s their version of the Lincoln Memorial except for Lincoln and the pool.
In addition, there’s a pond area with the word Taipei spelled out with flowers. However, I wouldn’t suggest taking a swim in the water cause it’s pretty filthy. If you can get pass that, I definitely recommend taking a dive in the 2 feet deep pond. There’s a temple in the middle of the park surrounded by another pond. It’s not the same pond as the Taipei sign. There’s a mini-bridge to get to the temple. It’s a pretty cool photo opportunity, so pull out those selfie sticks.
Overall, I would definitely recommend visiting 2/28. It’s a couple of blocks from Taipei Main Station, the Symphony Hall, and the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. I don’t recommend smoking in the park. I saw an old man yell at some kid for smoking on the park bench then the kid flipped him off. Thug life.
