During the Japanese invasion of Taiwan, Shibajian Mountain was used as a fort by Hakka guerrillas against the Japanese army. Today, in Shibajian Mountain and the area’s Gaofeng Botanical Garden, many Tung trees are grown. Taking a walk in Shibajian Mountain, visitors can expect to go through a Tung blossom trail, an overpass, and finally the botanical garden. During the Japanese Occupation, the garden was used for growing saplings for related agencies throughout Taiwan. Today, more than 300 plant species thrive in the garden, making it a place of diverse natural ecology. It is in fact Hsinchu City’s most biologically diverse place. The Tung Flower Square includes an overpass crossing Baoshan Road from Shibajian Mountain to the botanical garden. There is also a scenic platform, night-time lights, public toilets, a flower trail, a tea-serving pavilion, an old battlefield, a Hakka culture center, and an ecological pond.
