    Introduction of Hongmaogang Cultural Park
    Hong Mao Gang Cultural Park is located at the entrance of the Port of Kaohsiung's Second Harbor. The Park was developed through the integration of resources around the existing Gaozi Tower and covers a total area of 3.42 hectares. With their joint efforts, the Kaohsiung Bureau of Cultural Affairs and the Hong Mao Gang Culture Association planned six areas for the Park: the Gaozi Tower Revolving Restaurant, the Exhibition Hall, the Outdoor Exhibition Area, the Sky Walk, the Pier and Waiting Room, and the Ocean Front Platform. The construction of the Park was completed by Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit. With the community images of Hong Mao Gang and innovative exhibitions, the Park aims to present Hong Mao Gang's five major cultural properties which have been passed down through the generations: lagoons, shrimp farming, black mullet fishing and draggers, neighborhood temples, and sailing rafts. Though Hong Mao Gang community has disappeared and is now only part of Kaohsiung's history, the establishment of this Park ensures the lifestyle and spirit of its people will last forever in people's minds.

    In 2007 Hong Mao Gang Village was relocated and the original site became the Port of Kaohsiung Intercontinental Container Terminal. Using a small lot of land reserved for the Hong Mao Gang Cultural Park, we apply image display and an innovative approach to present the 400-year history of Hong Mao Gang community and witness the Port of Kaohsiung's 100 years of development.
