Ten years in the planning, this 57-hectare nature reserve opened in 2001 under the control of the Wild Bird Society of Taipei. There’s a visitor centre and good trails and hides, as well as over 200 species of birds, 150 species of plants and 800 species of animals. It’s a 15-minute walk from Guandu MRT, or take the R35 bus from outside the station.
The landscape consists of a mosaic of freshwater and brackish ponds, mudflats, marsh, rice paddies, and woodland, in which inhabits a rich variety of organisms. The mission of this park is to protect these valuable natural resources. Guandu is a major stopover site for migrating birds, especially waterfowls and shorebirds, as well as an important wintering and breeding ground for many species.
The park, situated at the confluence of the Tamsui and Keelung Rivers (and their smaller tributaries). On weekdays it’s rather busy with school groups, and on weekends with other tourists.
