Zhishan Cultural and Ecological Garden is located across from Yangming Hospital. The park's grounds include a lake, hundred-year old fragrant trees and other elements of natural landscape, as well as a 360 - degree environmental model that explains the development and relationship between Zhishan yan and the city of Taipei around it.

The ecological green house is used for the cultivation of many kinds of native plants, and the aquarium enables visitors to observe tree frogs and other animals up close. The archaeological exploration classroom displays an actual excavation in cross-section, in which visitors are able to see how the different levels each represent a different culture, thus serving as "living" teaching material for the instruction about cultural history of Taipei.
