Environmental Education Promotion Plan of Bade Pond Ecological Parkin Taoyuan

桃園星羅棋佈的埤塘(人工湖),代表因水利灌溉所需而衍生出的特殊土地利用方式。近年由於人口增加、工商業發達,埤塘逐漸被學校、社區、政府、機場建設所取代,目前尚保留近3,000口。在八德埤塘自然生態公園執行環境教育,便希望串聯起埤塘與人的密切關係。

 

融舊入新的公園地景

位於桃園市八德區興豐路旁的八德埤塘自然生態公園,其基地原為違章建築林立之國有地,因保有埤塘及老樹等珍貴資源,自民國95年起以「自然生態」為主要概念規劃設計為公園,除保留原有的綠樹、埤塘,還以人工挖出10個生態池,並將原有榕樹綠色隧道改為主要入口步行路線,並連結至自行車道,於民國97年7月正式完工啟用。除現有休閒遊憩功能,這裡更保存埤塘自然生態及其周邊聚落文化,是一兼具休憩、教育、運動、景觀功能的都會公園。

 

打造兼具環境教育功能的埤塘公園

本團隊以八德埤塘自然生態公園為中心,規劃環境教育活動之教案,並經營在地環境教育志工,透過戶外體驗課程及導覽解說活動,讓民眾了解桃園埤塘的自然生態、人文歷史及經濟社會價值,體認埤塘對社會文化和自然環境的重要性。

 

本團隊亦協助此場域申請環境教育設施場所,並於民國107年11月通過認證,以永續經營的概念落實在地化發展,讓在地民眾理解埤塘之於桃園的獨特性與代表性。

Artificial ponds are scattered across the municipality of Taoyuan, which gave it its nickname of “Thousand-pond Township,” and this unique landscape derived from the need for water irrigation in the past.

 

In recent years, many artificial ponds have gradually been replaced by construction of schools, communities, government facilities, and the international airport due to the rise in population and demand for industry and commerce development.

 

Nowadays, nearly 3,000 artificial ponds are still retained, and our team hope to bridge the connection between people and artificial ponds through environmental education in Bade Pond Ecological Park.

 

Blending the old with the new park landscape

The park is located next to Xingfeng Road, Bade District, Taoyuan City, on public land which originally was filled with illegal buildings.

 

Since 2006, in order to preserve valuable natural resources such as the old growth trees and ponds, the park was designed with the core tenet of "Natural Ecology". Not only were the original vegetation and ponds retained, 10 additional ecological ponds were also artificially implemented into the park. In addition, the original Banyan Tree Green Walkway was incorporated to become the main entry to the park’s walkway and connected to the bicycle pathway.

 

In July 2008, Bade Pond Ecological Park was officially opened to the public and this new metropolitan park provided leisure and recreational use, education and landscape functions, all the while preserving the natural ecology and cultural history of the site.

 

Building a Pond Park with environmental education function

Our team set up the Bade Pond Ecological Park as the center for planning and implementing environmental education lessons, as well as managing local volunteers, to provide environmental education for the public. Outdoor environmental education courses and guided walks are used in order to introduce people to natural ecology, humanities and cultures, and the socioeconomic values of the artificial ponds in Taoyuan, and to recognize the importance of ponds to the local culture and natural environment.

 

Our team also assisted the park in the application for Environmental Education Facilities and Venues certification, which passed the certification process in November 2018.

 

The concept of sustainable management and localization is implemented in Bade Pond Ecological Park, and it allows visitors to understand the uniqueness and significance of artificial ponds in Taoyuan.
