Kaohsiung City(高雄市) -Jincheng Shuanghu(金澄雙湖) Forest Park Plan

Execution Schedule:2015~2021
  • Planning idea drawing of the whole area

This project area was previously zoned as a cemetery in the urban fringe area; it was estimated that there were about 12,600 above-ground graves, and the overlapping grave situation was serious, not only affecting the appearance of the city, but also hindering urban development. After the county-city merger in 2010, it was transformed into the core area of Greater Kaohsiung. This project foundation, Jincheng Shuanghu(金澄雙湖) Forest Park, is located in Sanmin District(三民區), Kaohsiung, adjacent to Renwu(仁武) and Niaosong District(鳥松區), between the Jinshi(金獅) Lake Scenic Area and the Chengcing(澄清) Lake Scenic Area.

As an "urban ecological forest park, "Jincheng Shuanghu(金澄雙湖) Forest Park is positioned as an ecological park for urban recreation, under the development concept of forest park integration of "double lakes embracing the mountains," to break the original cemetery impression, transform the urban texture, connect the peripheral environment and construct the ecological corridor, introduce the local cultural and history characteristics, and connect with Jinshih(金獅) Lake and Chengcing(澄清) Lake Scenic Areas, all in order to establish a common life and leisure circle of Sanmin(三民), Niaosong(鳥松), Renwu(仁武), and Fengshan(鳳山) areas. The plan takes" natural environment reconstruction," "cultural and historical preservation," "sports and leisure space planning," and "public safety improvement" as its four major goals to reshape the old border space and create an urban ecological forest park in which residents can rest and local flora and fauna can thrive.

  • Natural environment reconstruction - repairing the vanishing forest ecology: in the park, the vanishing forest ecology is repaired through forest reconstruction to create a flora and fauna habitat and rebuild the ecological diversity of the park.

  • Cultural and historical preservation - restoring the cultural image of farmland and irrigation canals: the existing historical and humanistic tracks are retained in the park in order to restore the cultural image of farmland and irrigation canals and achieve memory inheritance and historical commemoration.

  • Increase sports and leisure spaces- enhancing community communication in Sanmin(三民), Renwu(仁武), and Niaosong(鳥松): the existing terrain in the park is built for hiking, while gentle terrain is provided for community residents to carry out aerobics, picnics, and other leisure activities.

  • Improve public safety - creating safe regional flood detention: the flood detention facilities within the park are developed to collect rainwater within the park and create a safe regional flood detention system. On the slope, the forest belt barrier, soil retaining slope protection, and other planning methods will be used to strengthen the security of the boundary.
