The Indigenous Botanical Garden offers an escape from the bustle of the city for an educational and relaxing outing in a park devoted to botanical species indigenous to Taiwan.

Ecological engineering methods have been used throughout the gardens, from soft pavements to water recycling systems. Brooks, fountains, winding bridges and even a sandy beach further add to the unique scenic charms of the garden.

The garden covers 4.66 hectares by the Western Trunk Line in Kaohsiung's Zuoying District. It includes areas devoted to mangroves, aquatic plants, low-elevation southern plants, coral reefs, and coastal trees. There is also an education center and plant evolution plaza where visitors can learn more about the natural ecology of Taiwan.
