Farewell, 886 – Cultural Park of Taiwan Military Veteran Village
Kaohsiung features a unique presence of all three military branches that once filled the city with military encampments and officer dependents’ dormitories. Kaohsiung’s military dependents’ living quarters totals almost 90 hectares and is the largest preservation grounds in Taiwan.
Zuoying’s history as a navy basecamp can be traced back to Japanese colonial rule. This populated the district with the largest occupation of navy dependents in Taiwan. Mingde New Residential Quarter, for example, was nicknamed the “Navy Generals’ Village” due to its high residential volume of prominent officials. In 2018, the Kaohsiung Museum of Military Dependents’ Villages was relocated and renamed “Farewell, 886 – Cultural Park of Taiwan Military Veteran Village,” in commemoration of the 886 officially enlisted military dependents’ villages that once spread across Taiwan.
