Chung-cheng Park, or called Keelung Zhongzheng Park, the ubiquitous tourism symbol of Keelung is located on the east coast mountain. The park is surrounded by lush greenery; an oasis in the midst of a bustling city. Chung-cheng Park consists of three levels. The first level on the lowest ground has recreational facilities such as skating rim, tennis court and shelters accompanied by remains of old canons.
The second level on higher ground houses a temple (Zhu-pu-tan) where you can find native heritage exhibits and a library for the Buddhism enthusiasts. This is the center of celebrations for the mid-July Ghost Festival.

On the top level, the highest ground of the park, stood the most popular attraction in the park and a landmark in northern Taiwan; a white 22.5-meter tall statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy. You can climb up the stairs inside the statue for a splendid view of Keelung. There is also a statue of smiling Buddha and temple at the ridgeline.

Three levels in the park is a combination of culture and reacreation. On the first level is the historic cannon fort for cultural education. On the second level is a Buddhist library, martyrs’ shrine and Zhu Pu Tan Temple, is often occupied with worshipers. The temple attracts many worshipers on July 15, the Chung Yuan (Hungry Ghost) Festival, when families lights a lamp in front of their door in order to light the way for ghosts at night. Chung-cheng Park is very close the Keelung City, a great visit of natural and cultural experience without having to travel far.
