Dongyue Fountain東岳湧泉

Introduction

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.

    活水源源不絕注入湧泉是夏天相當棒的一個休閒的場所,距離東澳相當近且附近有一個廣闊的停車場,可惜的是周邊欠缺管理垃圾不少希望大家發揮公德心
