Establishment Purpose

  • Established on July 1, 1978 in Xizi Bay at the foot of the Shoshan Mountain, Shoushan Zoo was first called “Xiziwan Zoo” under the jurisdiction of the “Kaohsiung City Xiziwan Scenic Specific Area Administration Office”. In July 1979, it was re-assigned to the Park Management Office under the Construction Bureau of the Kaohsiung City Government. In 1983, the Park Management Office was renamed Maintenance Office and re-assigned to the Public Works Bureau, and the Xiziwan Scenic Specific Area Administration Office was renamed “Shoshan Scenic Area Administration Office” under the Construction Bureau of the Kaohsiung City Government. In June 1983, the Construction Office of the Public Works Bureau took over the new zoo construction project. The construction of the whole zoo was completed in May 1986, six years after project planning. Animals began to move in since March 1986, and the zoo started service on June 15 in the same year.
