This lake has been opened for quite some time now and is part of a reservoir which stores water from the Yaker River. Although small in size, the lake is the oldest scenic spot in Hsinchu and fringed by centuries old temples amid lush greenery.

Green Grass Lake used to be a mini-sized lake hundreds of years ago, which was also used as a dam. After the end of the Japanese colonial period in Taiwan, the first magistrate of Hsinchu County ordered to reconstruct the dam, resulting in a 30 square kilometer area for storing water. It was the first large-scaled construction in Hsinchu since the establishment of the local government.

Although it has been one of the eight greatest scenic places in Taiwan, Green Grass Lake lost its irrigating function due to the sedimentation of soil. The sedimentation also affected the views. Fortunately, in the past few years the Hsinchu City Government has been continuously renovating the lake and restoring its original views.

The Hsinchu City Government is now actively constructing public facilities in coordination of the natural features of Green Grass Lake, including gardens, bridges, bird-observing track, lake-encircling track, and resting places. These features provide relaxing places to the visitors so they may truly appreciate the views.
