The main hall’s “Three-Level Lights” and the park lights are usually turned on at sunset in accordance with the Central Weather Bureau's automated schedule. On holidays, the roof lights (including the main hall, Gate of Great Loyalty, Gate of Great Piety, and Liberty Square Arch) are also automatically turned on at sunset. The lights are turned off at midnight on both regular days and holidays.
The circular path and roadside parking lot within the park are only accessible to those who have applied and been approved for business purposes. According to the CKSMH "Vehicle Control and Parking Management Guidelines,” vehicles being driven within the park must not exceed a speed of 20 kilometers per hour, and horns must not be used without reason. Temporary passes issued to drivers also include a warning to drive slowly (speed limit of 20 km/h), yield to pedestrians, and park in designated areas. To strengthen management, all security personnel are requested to remind drivers of these rules and to enforce them upon entry.
This outdoor area is a public space for leisure and entertainment. Article 16, Section 1, Clause 1 and Section 2 of the Tobacco Hazards Prevention Act allow for the setting up of smoking areas, as long as clear no-smoking signs or signs indicating that smoking is only allowed in the designated areas are placed at the entrance and other appropriate locations. Per these regulations, we have set up one designated smoking area within the park (near the Qinmin Exercise Area). Smoking and non-smoking areas are separated to ensure no disturbance between smokers and non-smokers. This protects the health rights of non-smokers while also considering the needs and rights of smokers, who can smoke in an appropriate location. To protect visitors' quality of experience, we have posted notices at all major park entrances in accordance with the law, clearly stating that smoking is prohibited throughout the park except in the designated smoking area. We have also instructed our security personnel to increase patrols throughout the park and to advise anyone caught smoking in violation of the rules to stop. If they refuse to comply, we will report them to the appropriate authorities in accordance with Article 3 of the Tobacco Hazards Prevention Act.
Our flagpole here stands at a height of 30 meters, which is different from the usual flagpole height. The longer a flagpole, the more it is affected by the wind at its tail end. If we increase the size of the national flag, it may be subjected to greater wind force than it can withstand. This may cause the flagpole to bend, which would be difficult to repair and expensive to replace. Moreover, if the size of the national flag exceeds the height of the average person, it may cause inconvenience during the flag-raising ceremony. Therefore, considering all these factors, the current length of the flagpole and the size of the national flag are appropriate, and we consider it advisable to maintain the current size of the national flag.
The Memorial Hall is open every day from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, except when it is closed for special occasions such as Chinese New Year's Eve, the first day of the Chinese New Year, 228 Memorial Day, annual maintenance days, or when natural disasters cause the suspension of work in Taipei City.
