New Park (新公园)
There was a small lot on the right side of Chiang Kai Shek's Presidential Building reserved as a park. In the late fifties, it was remodeled with some old-style pavilions. It was definitely better looking than before. The local government was quite proud of what they did. The image of a very "poor" place was starting to change. It was a very slow change and it would not be noticeable until perhaps 1972. When I look back, the change really started after I entered Taida.
