Dongyue Fountain東岳湧泉


You can find Dongyue Fountain next to Dong Ao Elementary School in Su’ao Township, Yilan. With 14 to 16C temperature year round, crystal clear water, and even little fish swimming around inside; it has always been a popular spot for locals to cool off. After garnering attention online however, the Fountain is now a summer destination for tourists from all over the country.

Around Dongyue Fountain are camping grounds, rest areas, public restrooms, a large Parking lot and other facilities. The Fountain was discovered when an underground spring was uncovered during the railroad construction. Its cool water was redirected into the Dongao River, running about a couple of hundred meters long; it was later developed into the Dongyue Fountain Park. 

The Fountain is an average of 60 cm deep and covered with stones on the bottom, so parents need to keep an eye on their children playing in the water to prevent accidents.

Trains will occasionally roar past on the bridge above while people play in the water right below, an amusing scene to behold. Before coming for refreshing summer fun, visitors should be aware that barbequing is prohibited on the Park grounds so that the popular destination is kept clean.

    A Dilapidated Park

    3 2015-07

    The Park of Dongyue Fountain, whose water was found by accident during railway construction in the 1990s, is in the proximity of Dongao Train Station. By a 15-minute walk through the Dongyue Tribal Community you will find the park. Although the park is currently made off-limits by the government, swarms of people arrive to get a refreshing dip in the fairly cold water (14-16 degrees Celsius) and to enjoy an afternoon of fun. Except for the only remaining artificial pool, almost everything has been neglected or has fallen disrepair. In addition, garbage left behind by visitors has not been collected for a while. The park is nearly a mess. Hopefully the government could soon work out a plan to preserve and maintain the park that was so invitingly wonderful. I would give a higher rating if the park were the way it used to be. For now I do not recommend it because of its dilapidated condition. Those who visit Dongao are well advised to visit Fenniaolin Fish Harbor that is located three kilometers away from Dongao Train Station. It takes approximately 50 minutes to arrive on foot.

    [東岳湧泉]位於蘇澳鎮東澳國小旁邊,東岳湧泉是因為進行北迴鐵路雙軌工程時,意外挖出地下水脈,除了將冷冽的泉水引入東澳北溪,並於鐵路工程完工後,在鐵路高架橋下截留一段,規畫建設了現在[東岳湧泉],湧泉以梯田式分成三段,原本設計是三個水池的高度不一樣,但現在量水位都差不多一樣了。 依園區入口的立牌說明,[東岳湧泉]的水溫全年皆為攝氏14到16度,泉水平均深度約50公分,泉水清澈見底,池底佈滿了大小不一的石頭,是當地人夏季消暑勝地。隨著網路廣泛分享,吸引許多遊客前來戲水,成為了東澳暑假的熱門景點。 園區內還設有數個方形木棧平台、公廁等設施,園區對面有簡易免費停車場,可供大量遊客停放車位。在[東岳湧泉]戲水的同時,抬頭可看見橋上的火車行駛過去,形成一副有趣的場景。 園區入口之前有告示禁止露營&烤肉,例假日園區內有不少攤販聚集,販賣各種當地美食。比較特別的當地美食是[煙燻飛魚乾],燻飛魚的方法很特別,它是在中間鐵桶內加木材一直燒,而不是直接煙燻的,魚的味道比較香。

    暑假前來東岳湧泉,天氣炎熱,泡在冰冰節泉水裡好舒服,只是遊人超級多,很多是一家大小來玩,地上坐滿了人,也有人帳篷都帶上。 園區有小吃攤,賣小吃和飲料,也有洗手間。
