National Cheng Kung University Banyan Park(成大榕園)




The banyan trees of National Cheng Kung University (成大) have long been a symbol of Tainan. It is said that they were personally planted by Japanese Crown Prince Hirohito (Later known as Emperor Showa) when he visited Taiwan in 1923. Even now, the banyan trees are like kind old alumni, standing watch over the Cheng Kung University campus every day. When graduation time comes around, there are always lots of students here taking photos, reluctant to leave. In the sunshine, the Banyan Park (成大榕園) exudes strong educational institution charm, and has a most exotic atmosphere. On holiday afternoons many people can be seen walking here; foreigners bring their whole families to lie down and sunbathe, and it is the top picnic choice for downtown tourists.

    How educational!

    Traveler rating:5 2019-06

    Even if you are not a student at this university that is across from the rear entrance of the train station, you can enjoy the ambiance and history of this site. This green campus has low rise buildings, a duck/koi pond, and many sculptures throughout -- the chess players was one of my favorites. Also you can clearly see remnants of the Eastern Gate wall of Fu Cheng and a modern gate near the museum.

    good place for picnic

    Traveler rating:4 2018-04

    there is a big tree and big field for picnic, which is the only thing we did when we went there. The campus is huge but you definitely see some trees there.

    The Chinese language center here is one of the best in the country. Many young and young at heart come here to learn Chinese in classes or one by one. You can learn by the lovely pond and bridge. Old classic Gates and trees on campus, too.

    Modern Education in Heritage complex

    Traveler rating:5 2018-11

    One of the best university in Taiwan placed in heritage building complex with abundance of historical spots especially in Kuang fu campus such as National Cheng Kung University Museum, Banyan Garden, Cheng Kung Lake, and West Gate.We can stroll around the campus absorbing academic atmosphere with several groups of people practising tai-chi especially in the morning and afternoon. Its a good place to relax and reminiscing the early Taiwan governance activities.
