Sign Up to Explore Taipei through the Water

Sign Up to Explore Taipei through the WaterHydraulic Engineering Office (HEO) invites the public to sign up for water-themed guided tours to explore local river areas, wetlands, and water pumping station. The tours are packed with both outdoor and indoor activities.
 
Designed for people of all ages, the tours will take participants on visits to stream ecological systems round Dagouxi Ecology and Water-Control Park, Neigouxi Ecological Trail, Neihu Jinrui Park, and Shezi Wetland. They will acquire environmental knowledge and learn about the importance of water through a series of interactive activities.
 
Participants will have a rare opportunity to visit the water pumping facility to see how flood water is managed. Not only that, they can also experience the thrill of typhoon winds with a maximum hourly rainfall rate of 300 mm/h—safely, in a newly established storm simulation lab.
 
The tours are free of charge, though pre-registration is required for both group and non-group participants. Children must be at least 6 years of age and children between 6 to 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
 
Group tours are open for registration at http://gd-park.org.tw/apply/4977 (Chinese).
Registration for non-group participants will be available by the end of May.
Call (02)2858-7417 ext. 210-214 for more information.
