  • On the opposite side of the Mingchih Lake, there is an abundance of man-made forest full of Japanese cedar. Forest Conservation and Enterprise Administration (FCEA) named the place “Century Old Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Forest” in 1964 to commemorate the100th birthday anniversary of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. It is also the place for growing sapling at Mingchih Nursery. Inside “Century Old Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Forest”, it is dark and humid. There are plenty of ferns that grow in the field of no more than 2 hectares. You can find at least 18 families, 38 genera, and over 50 species of the fern plants. That’s why the name was changed to “Fern Garden” in the development project of Mingchih Forest Recreation Area.
                                                        
    There are two main wooden paths inside the Fern Garden; one will take you straight to the lake if you start walking from the Mingchih Resort Area. On one side of the road, there is a platform and guided tour facility called the “Woodland Classroom” for fern plants. It offers a place for visitors to learn from education, and get to know the bottom layer ecology in the forest. Another wooden path is an interconnected, bilateral forest path, which will converge into one path at the 2-floor “Forest Pavilion”. Visitors are allowed to climb up the pavilion as they see the forest from the bottom-layer to the intermediate layer. It offers a chance for visitors to observe nature in different perspectives and see the forest as a whole so that they can have better understanding of the forest ecology.
