the greater taipei area really lacks green space
we are fortunately enough to live a block away from one of the biggest parks in all of taipei
the xinzhuang park
even though we don't take full advantage of it and don't go as much as we should, we do still go sometimes
now with the wifey pregnant, we've been going there to take a stroll more often than usual
i also go there to play basketball once in a while, but the courts get way too packed for my liking
the one thing that's bad about the park is the traffic it sometimes creates
the park has a big indoor arena which is used for concerts and for a number of sporting events as well as a baseball stadium where taiwan's major league plays games at
whenever there's an event / game going on, the surrounding area is packed with traffic
here are some pics of the park i took while we took a stroll a couple weeks ago...

the little girl's hand could have / should have been place at a better place
it started to get dark so i stopped taking pictures
i'll be back with more pics soon
