You will leave the port and drive to Chung Cheng Park (Kang Park). There is a 25-metre high white statue of Goddess of Mercy in the park, which has become one of the landmarks of Keelung. The park overlooks Keelung City and the harbour. There are three levels in the park containing a historic canon fort, a Buddhist library and a Temple.
You will then drive to Yeliu Park. Yehliu is a cape of about 1,700 meters long formed by Datun Mountain reaching into the sea. When overlooked from above, the place is like a giant turtle submerging into the sea. Thus, it is also called "Yehliu Turtle" because the rock layer of seashore contains sandstone of limestone texture and it is subject to sea erosion, weathering and earth movements. There is particular scenery consisting of sea trenches/pot holes, fungus shaped rocks, and pot shaped rocks. The place is divided into three sections: the first section has rocks like Queen's Head, Fairy's Shoe and a Candle; the second section has rocks like Bean Curd and a Dragon Head and the third section has sea-eroded caves, seal shaped rock, etc. The place is suitable for geological study and field research. In addition, there is a statue of Lin Tien Jane in commemoration of bravery of sacrificing his own life to save others. The monument describes in details the touching story.
