Jiabanshan Sculpture Park
Chiao Pan Shan Presidential Retreat
Taoyuan County
Tel: +886 333 22592

The Jiabanshan Sculpture Park (also known as the Chiao Pan Shan Sculpture Park) is located inside the grounds of the former Chiao Pan Shan Presidential Retreat in the Fushing mountain township. This stunning park is the only Presidential Retreat in Taiwan opened to the public. Mindful of Taoyuan County’s role as the gateway to the country, the Cultural Affairs Bureau (CAB) of Taoyuan County Government decided to incorporate a collection of site specific art commissions by international artists into the landscape of the Presidential Retreat. In 2003, the CAB commissioned 12 renowned international artists, including artists from Portugal, Israel, the United States, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and Taiwan. The sculpture park opened in June 2004.

Open daily.
