Old residents of Xinying (新營) all have a deep affection for Nanying Green Heart Park (No. 5 Park). (南瀛綠都心5號公園) in front of the Municipal Civic Center (民治市政中心). More than 80 years ago, many of Xinying's important events were held here, and the locals had an inseparable connection to the park.
Walking in the park, you will still occasionally discover the distinctive painted deer statues, representing the large number of Sika deer that lived on the plain that the Pingpu people once inhabited. There are many great photo opportunities for tourists visiting Green Heart Park, with installations ranging from entire buildings to a small desk chair, all with a strong modern art aesthetic. All kinds of flowers adorn the wide lawn and white geese wander about in the large pond; if you're looking for a springtime picnic spot in northern Tainan, this is a place you cannot miss.
