Taipei Botanical Garden 台北植物園
Built by the Japanese as "Taipei Nursery" in 1896, the park was expanded in 1921 to become a botanical garden home to over 2,000 species of plant species.
Occupying 82,000 SQ METRES of land in Downtown Taipei, the garden today serves as a research centre for the Taiwan Forestry Research Institute as well as a public park for the public to enjoy.
The park is home to the remaining areas of the ancient Taipei Lake.
The Taipei Botanical Garden is a member of the Botanic Gardens Conservation International plant conservation network under the institution code TAIF.
