Located at Kouhu, Yunlin County, Yiwu Detention Pond is also known as Yunlin's Sun Moon Lake. Although it has no Sun Moon Lake's complementing beauty of mountains and waters, Yiwu Detention Pond boasts rich ecological landscapes. Originally it was a sugarcane planation owned by Taiwan Sugar Corporation, but sea water was brought in by a typhoon and flooded it, submerging the previous woodland to create today's pond.
The serene Yiwu Detention Pond consists of the Northern Pond and Southern Pond. There is a bikeway circling the pond for riders to explore some secret spots along the pond. It's also equipped with many observation decks and pavilions for visitors to rest, and camping platforms for camping enthusiasts to enjoy exceptional scenery.
Yiwu Detention Pond not only has the function of flood control, but also offers stunning wetland views. Its rich ecological resources make it a paradise for bird watchers, as well as a nice place for locals to ride a bike, jog, walk or simply admire the scenery.
