Encore Garden (亞哥花園) is an abandoned theme park in the hills above Taichung city in Taiwan. I learned about this urban explorer’s dream after reading up on Katolis World, another abandoned amusement park demolished a few years ago, and finding a link to this blog. As part of my epic bicycle tour of Taiwan I stopped off to see whether I could sneak in and capture the essence of this forgotten and neglected place. Here is what I found…
The entrance to Encore Garden, an abandoned amusement park in the hills above Taichung.
Ticket booth at Encore Garden.
Broken glass outside an office or clubhouse.
Inside the clubhouse.
Animal house in the amusement park.
Apparitions in the overgrowth.
There is a building beneath the foliage. Everything in the park is being reclaimed by nature.
A face I will not forget.
This ride will spin no more.
Merry-go-round to nowhere.
The last bump.
The haunted bandshell by day.
We once dreamed of the stars.
The setting sun was my cue to depart.
