The 4，693 m2， slightly triangular Wanhua Park No. 402 is located at the intersection of Bangka Boulevard and Xiyuan Road， which used to be occupied by the Taipei Jen-Chi Relief Institution and private residences. The neighborhood was notorious for ITS outdated amenities and a substandard lifestyle that left the city unsightly. In an urban renewal program for Wanhua District， Taipei City Government launched a park expansion plan that added greenery and decorations to reinforce healthy trees/plants already grown in the park in an attempt to improve living quarters and provide greater access to public lawns. The revamped park was inaugurated on November 13， 2006. Herbs， including therapeutic Chinese herbs， are grown along Xiyuan Road in the brand-new Park No. 402， where benches and an activity plaza (approx. 256 m2) were installed between the park lanes parallel to Bangka Boulevard and historic buildings. A variety of shrubs (blue butterfly bushes， Osmanthus， etc.) connect the plaza， the buildings and corridor; massive lawns and trees (such as banyans， Fan Palms， Chinese Hackberry， camphor trees and Spindle Palm) abound in the park， offering the neighborhood a perfect bonding place for recreation and chit-chats.
