Yangming Park is divided into Qianshan and Houshan Parks. Qianshan Park is next to the Yangmingshan Bus Station and has a swimming pool, skating rink, basketball courts, slides, public toilets and other facilities. It also has one male and one female hot spring baths, attracting bathing visitors every day of the week.
Longfenggu is rich in natural geological topography and landscape, including pyroclastic rock and Mt. Wuzhi's coarse-grained sandstone. Post-volcanic activity remains active here in the form of the many fumaroles sprouting volcanic sulfur gas and natural and artificial hot springs. Many commercial hot spring baths and restaurants have been opened along Xingyi Road.
Yangmingshan National Park Headquarters established a Longfenggu Park here in 2007 with accessible trails, ecology pond, pavilions and toilets, and planted 100 species of native and aquatic plants.
