228 Memorial Peace Park
This park was renamed a few years ago to commemorate those who lost their lives on February 28, 1947. The 228 Incident, as it is commonly called, was the result of the police beating an old Taiwanese woman selling illegal cigarettes. It turned into a violent uprising and KMT troops were sent in to restrain the protesters. Thousands of people were killed as a result of this use of brutal force. There is a memorial at the center of the park dedicated to those who died, as well as fountains, walking trails, beautiful Chinese pavilions and historical archways throughout the park.
