◎Peace Memorial Park
Planning began in 2003 for the Peace Memorial Park, which encompasses Strongholds 06, 08, and 12 and covers a total of 38.8 hectares. The completion of Stronghold 08 provided Taiwan’s first prototype for such a park. Stronghold 08 focuses on the display of weapons, at the same time using space in an old barracks to exhibit military equipment to provide a battlefield atmosphere and give visitors a chance to experience Matsu’s battleground sights personally.
