This historic site locates south of Ketagalan Boulevard in Taipei’s Zhongzheng district, Taiwan, it is also the home of Taipei 228 Memorial Museum. The building was a former radio station that operated under Japanese and Kuomingtang rule. The park was originally called Taipei Park and was then changed to “New Park in the Past”. It was first established during the Qing Dynasty and it’s now one of the oldest parks in Taipei area.

Due to civil resistance on economic monopoly and corruption in the KMT government after World War II in 1947, people gathered in front of the police department on the 27th Feb 1947 to protest but were shot by the soldiers. The next day, 28th Feb, more people gathered in the Taipei Park and broadcast the movement at the radio station. In order to restrain the protesters and arrest alleged participants, the KMY government used military force on the public, causing hundreds hurt, and even death. During year 1996, the park was then renamed to 228 Peace Memorial Park in order to relieve this historic pain, a monument was set up in the park as well to remember the innocent people who sacrificed in the event.
