First attractions in Chienkuo Technology University, Formosa Taiwan- a propitious place for giving birth to great men, is now open to Changhua residents, communities, as well as students and parents.
Formosa Taiwan, the campus attractions in Chienkuo Technology University, activated on August 9, 2017. The opening ceremony was hosted by Chairman Lien-Hsing Wu, Changhua Mayor Jian-Fu Qiou, County Government Senator Yi-Ling Chen, and school directors were all present by invitation.
The campus attractions was built by school in cooperation with Changhua City Office. To exploit Da Xue Road, the school board spent around two years to build a miniature Formosa Taiwan Landscape Park, a place which was a deformed area after the building of general education center was expropriated and dismantled. After the opening ceremony, the landscape park was officially handed over to school, and was available to Changhua city residents, communities, students and parents.
The park covers an area of more than 200 pings. Besides many miniatures of well-known mountains and rivers in Taiwan such as Mt. Jade, Alishan and Baguanshan, in the center of the park, there is a mini Sun Moon Lake. on Guang Hua island, and in the middle of the lake stands a longer than ten feet fountain and an observatory. Few days ago, school authorities ran an operation test, they surprisingly found that the kois in the lake are more energetic than those in koi ponds, and the lake water is as green as University Pond in Xitou Nature Education Area in Nantou County.
President Farn-Shing Chen said that the design concept of the landscape park was to put top ten nature attractions in Taiwan together. The miniatures of Mt. Jade, Alishan and Sun Moon Lake built with huge rocks, as well as treasurable trees and fountain are a remarkable place to relax. Communities are welcome to come over to sit in meditation so as to expose themselves in such a great natural environment.
President Chen also stated that anions are mostly generated in the source of a waterfall. As water come from the top, striking on stones to bring forth anions. With this principle, the fountain in the landscape park pumps up the water, making the water collide with air and stones to produce anions. Generally, anions in cities are about 200 ions/cm3, and 800 to 1000 (per cubic centimeter in mountain) area. While, after detecting, anions content here is up to 5000 ions/cm3, equivalent to the volume of alpine forest which is very beneficial to health.
Changhua County Government Senator Yi-Ling Chen recognized the great dedication that CTU has completed the construction of the campus attractions “Formosa Taiwan”, and is truly commendable to open such great place to the public. Mayor of Changhua City Jian-Fu Qiu, also said that CTU assented to cooperate the land expropriation with the government, and reformed this disordering piece into a scenery spot after being dismantled, which satisfies both sides.
After dusk, people who came to the campus of CTU for resting were amazed at the beautiful atmosphere under the lights that lighted up on campus at night. Mayor Qiu also claimed that people would feel great relaxation while strolling on the landscape park. In addition, students would definitely have a good mood to attend class under such great learning environment.
