I agree with you, and one shouldn’t talk crap about it all. The last few times I went up to Danshui and Bali, I was impressed. However, I live in Minsheng E. Rd, Section 5, which is, actually, a fantastic neighborhood. Actually, it’s one of the 3 or 4 places in this big city that actually feel like a ‘real neighborhood’. But, venture into the Keelung River Park, one entrance which is at the intersection of Tayou and Minsheng, sec. 5, and things change REAL quick. It is the filthiest, most putrid park I have ever beheld. I need to start holding my tongue to litterbugs, or there will surely be brawls soon, especially in the section that runs alongside Nangang -that’s simply a cesspool. Sadly, this could be a fantastic park. I can imagine kayaking, swimming, fishing, all that good stuff, but unfortunately, this has been turned into a liquid landfill. If I can motivate myself to learn to do it, I can post some photographs on here to back it up. I’m obsessed with the Keelung River Park -it’s all I think about.
