Banyan Garden is located at the rear of Tai Lake. Its original name was Sihwong village and Fengshan village. The garden used to be the old residence of the prominent Hong family during the Ming dynasty. Although the garden village had few residents, most of them served the emperor's regime at that time, according to the old proverb "Less than a hundred village residents, more than 36 palace officials."

位於太湖遊憩區內的榕園原名西洪,又名鳳山。原本是明朝洪氏望族的故居,村中人口不多,但在朝當官者不少,自古即有「人丁不滿百,京官三十六」之美稱。
At the end of the Ming dynasty, Jheng Cheng-gong (Koxinga) felled trees and made boats at the expense of(5) land conservation, thus the whole village couldn't survive the attack of strong winds and was buried in the sand, except for only one house, which remains to the present time. In August of 1967 when Mr. Chiang Jing-guo, the late President of our country visited here, he considered the place shaded in green leaves of the old banyan trees to be an appropriate recreation resort. Consequently, he named the place "Banyan Garden" and renovated the only old house before he bestowed its name " Wuei Lu."

明朝末年,鄭成功為了造船,砍伐大量樹木,陸地在失去原有樹木的保護下,無法抵擋巨大風沙的侵襲,因而導致整個村子的房屋被風沙湮沒,無法保存,後來僅剩下一戶。民國五十六年(西元1967年)八月,先總統蔣經國先生到這裡巡視,看見古榕樹綠蔭蔽天,是個休閒遊憩的好地方,便將此處命名為「榕園」,並且整修剩餘的一間古厝,取名為「慰廬」。

By the side of Banyan Garden is "Tai Lake", the biggest man-made fresh-water lake in Kinmen. It measures 36 hectares in area, and provides the largest single source of water supply in Kinmen. The main function of the lake is to offer water for the residents of Jinhu town. In the middle of the lake there are three islets with a pavilion on one of them. All in all, being a part of "Chiang Kai-shek Park", the lake just silhouettes the natural beauty of the entire park.

榕園旁的「太湖」是金門島上最大的人工淡水湖,面積約有36公頃,是金門島上最大的水利設施,主要供應金湖鎮地區的民生用水。湖面上有三座小島,島上有涼亭,整座「中正公園」秀麗的景色都襯托在湖面中。(十四)
