History and Vision
  B M S
In the Qing Dynasty, the Neiweipi area was famous for its beautiful pond and natural scenery and, now in the 21st century, the area, along with history and landscape, is becoming more famous with the completion of the Neiweipi Cultural Park. It is a place that contains childhood or adolescence memories of many local citizens in Kaohsiung. It is the home of the largest pond and wetland area in Kaohsiung. The pond used to be one of the most important reservoirs for agricultural irrigation in Kaohsiung as well. In earlier time, log ships could be seen traveling along the Love River to the peripheral parts of the area and, therefore, there used to be many log pools and factories around. The Neiweipi area is more than 30 hectares, connected to the Love River as well as the Lotus Pond and the Caigong Pond.

Occupying 41 hectares in area (including the 6 hectares reserved for the establishment of National Taiwan Arts Education Center), the Neiweipi Cultural Park is a leisure park which integrates functions of art, culture, creativity, ecological preservation and education. The park is managed by the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts (KMFA) which plays an important role in promoting art developments, introducing important foreign art trends, exhibiting works by artists from Taiwan or other countries, and extending art education..
