The 228 Peace Memorial Park is a historic site and municipal park located at 3 Ketagalan Boulevard, Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan. The park contains memorials to victims of the February 28 Incident of 1947, including the 228 Memorial Monument that stands at the center of the park and the Taipei 228 Memorial Museum, housed at the site of a former radio station that operated under Japanese and Kuomintang rule. The National Taiwan Museum stands at the park's north entrance. The park also has a bandshell and exercise areas.
The park was originally established in 1900 as Taihoku New Park(臺北新公園) during the Japanese colonial period, on former temple grounds. It was the first European-style urban park in Taiwan, placed on the grounds of the Governor-General's Office.

An attractive park with many landmarks. There is a museum here showcasing local exhibits - a great way to spend an hour or two - along with several monuments and pagodas. Several ponds dot the park There are restrooms here as well as water coolers. It is usually very lively in the daytime too

Love this place. Lots of trees, art deco monuments and pagodas. It's big enough and a great place to stop and sit down. I visited this park many times and am always impressed. Lots of friendly squirrels.

This is a great place to walk around and there is a lot of shades due to the trees. The playground is nice but it's more for kids under 5, although there is a big slide for bigger kids. There are a lot of things to see such as the fish pond, the pagoda, among other things. There are a lot of history and good reads/displays. The name 228 is a relatively new name change due to politics, unfortunately.

Lovely place for a walk. Easy to find MRT and is central to many places to eat. Found the national museum walking around here too.

It is a small park, around 10 min walking from Taipei station. Some display objects in the park may be political sensitive and some protests may occur over there. Otherwise it is ok for a short visit if you are nearby and have some free time.

Nice.... Not more not less. If you in the area pass by and have a break. Metro is next to it so easy to go further

2/28 Peace Park is a small park in downtown Taipei. This park is to commemorate the victims of the February 28 massacre. However, most tourists may not know the history of Taiwan, or even they would not visit here. Actually, this park is not a tourist spot.

Big and spacious. Has a nice play ground for kids, exercise area for adults. A lot of other stuff too. Great for repeated trips.

Very cool spot... Neat sculptures, greenery and a bit of bird watching. I walked on the stone foot path to improve my health... I will likely live to 100 now.
