englai River Ecology Park
Other than Nanzhuang Old Street and Xiangtian Lake, there is a tourist attraction which is also famous in Nanzhuang, and it is known as the Penglai River Ecology Park. This is the very first time that I am here despite having been in Nanzhuang for so many times. It is hard to imagine that the fish here were almost extinct in such crystal clear water of the Penglai River with fish now swimming around leisurely. Local residents realized the river ecology was destroyed, and formed the “Penglai River Neighborhood Watch Fish-Protecting Patrol Team” to guard the river streams. The Miaoli County Government also announced in 2001 they would close-off the river in the middle and upper streams of the Penglai River in Nanzhuang Township, so as to protect the fish, and no catching of fishing of fish is allowed in the river sections that were protected; it is with such endeavors that accomplished the Penglai River Ecology Park of today.
There is a 2.4 Km long fish-protecting footpath along the Penglai River; the wooden footpath is well-designed for the stairs and handrails, making it easy to walk on while also taking safety into consideration. Many description signboards may be seen along the way, and it can be seen from the description signboards, that one may see Taiwan shovel-jaw carps, Taiwan Gitterorfe and Zacco barbata in the Penglai River; the description signboards also clearly explain how one may identify these three types of fish, therefore you may try and find the traces of these fish in the Penglai River!
Such traveling approach of learning while walking along is ideal for family outings; moreover, great surprises will be waiting if one visits in summer! Due to the clean river and abundant ecological environment here, fireflies will appear in such pure and harmless environment during summer nights, so there are many people who also visit here during April~June to admire the twinkling fireflies.
