A wide variety of Made in Taiwan crafts of excellent quality and creativity. The complex is composed of buildings that are a former tobacco factory, in what is now a beautiful, peaceful setting. Easily accessible by the metro system and well worth a visit, especially if you like supporting local artisans and taking home great gifts!
Nice place for a quiet walk, inside when it's rain and out around the pond in nice weather. Lots of local artisan shops inside with unique crafts for sale, which are fun to window shop. The exhibit halls and museum are a bit touch and go, but probably more interesting if you are really into design. Across the street to the east are tons of little restaurants and cafés, many trendy but also a good mix of traditional places too.
Really beautiful place. Went during New Years and here's quite a lot of people, but it was still fun. Lots of pretty flowers, sculptures, and architectures to see.
Lovely activity for a rainy day. Plenty of varied designer exhibitions and merchandise for sale. Great for picking up gifts that are a little different for people back home. The site has many restrooms and even offers free lockers in the information office. Admission is free but there are also pay to enter exhibitions (when we visited there were two at 200 NTD each).
The last time I came here and there were a lot of things going on, and I hope that the weather was nice too. That was around spring last year and maybe it's in off-season now that it's winter. That's why I recommend maybe seeing if there's some place online that you check to see if they are having any events. Some of the museums there also attempt to close the early or have more restricted times, so planning definitely make sense either. I had to decide to come here on a whim and it didn't help that it was a rainy day. A lot of the exhibits were closed or still being worked on so honestly it was a bit of a waste of time for us this time around. Still, if you're interested in arts and crafts and things like that it's going to be a good place to see them. I will note though that at first I thought some of the things I saw in the gift shops there where may be exclusive to the area, but I ended up seeing some of those products at large department store elsewhere.
Love this place! It's very close and easily accessible from the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall Station. The Eslite store in the park always has lots of interesting trinkets to browse through. It gets a little crowded on the weekends but walking around on a weekday is very relaxing.
Went during a weekend and the place was crowded. Had several exhibitions in the warehouses, do check ahead if you're interested. There's also a design museum located in one of the buildings. Creative Park is flanked by an Eslite Spectrum Mall and a small park, within walking distance of the MRT although there's no sheltered walkway. Overall, a good place to spend a couple of hours even if you are not interested in the exhibits. Don't forget to drop by the bakery at the mall!
Great place to just hang out. Lots to see. Lots to do.
Songshan Cultural Creative Park is a well diversified art space. Beside commercial space, there are pop-up stores, weekend market, and best of all, space for universities graduates to showcase their graduation projects. This is very important for young artists to nurture their development. It is a cultural space well worth to support.
Zhongshan creativity park was named tobacco monopoly company, which established in 1937 during the Japanese era. This is the largest hand-tobacco company in Asia, this area is the industry park, which Japan introduced from Europe. Nowadays it turns to the place for exhibitions and shopping mall. Actually if you searching something related to the designed objects, please come to here. There has no much introduction about the area, for tourist they will only seem here as a shopping mall, but what’s more......
Lots of interesting stores within the old factory complex. Plus another big Eslite book store next to it which is good place to walk around and relax. It is also suitable for people looking for all kinds of interesting handcraft products also. Although it is a little far from Metro stations, it is well worth the walk for this creative park in the city center.
A great place to spend a couple of hours, with lots of different unique creative shops inside. Definitely worth a visit, and to patronage this place with your money. If you are looking for handmade things, with lots of different choices then this is your place.
Good location for expos, exhibitions and nearby shops/restaurants. There are a few unique spots worth exploring. The place also has a lot of outdoor greens making it rather inviting
Generally a fine place to visit. Easy to find as you can just take a short walk from a nearby train station. Full of designers retail and exhibition when you visit this place. There is a cafe in the building at the corner and just beside the building is a shopping center. Great place to visit.
Very good atmosphere during the day with families spending time near the water and at the tables. Pretty relaxing place. Some vending machines are always empty. Little too dark at night?
Interesting place to see local artisans and their crafts. The operative word is "see". Overly priced goods, but still a place to check out for sure.
Spacious outdoor area, heritage buildings, and newly built elite book store. Shops restaurants and display areas widely spread out. Can be busy during weekends. Indoor areas are with air-con. No parking on site. Part of the area open from 9am, most stores open at 11am.
Has a very wannabe hipster vibe. Instagram kids flock here for their posts. Exhibits are okay but you'll need to pay for them. Yet the old tobacco factory has a draw that's interesting.
The architecture and art market were unbelievably stunning. However, I wish there was more to do and the incredible space out to use through art shows and installations.
