Torik Park is located at the 125.5-km marker of Provincial Highway 11 close to Torik Tribe. In the past, the Torik Amis called this place "katomayan," meaning "the place where bears roam about." In addition to being the administrative center of the East Coast National Scenic Area Headquarters of Tourism Administration, MOTC, the park also includes Torik Visitor Center, Amis Folk Center, a large parking lot, and outdoor recreation and performance spaces. Being on the high ground, this spot offers a wide view of the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful sunrise and moonrise. It is not only an important hub for visitors to obtain travel information for the East Coast, but also an important attraction for guided groups. It is also a spot where locals come for a picnic or a walk with their children and furry kids.
Combined with the annual activities of the East Coast National Scenic Area Headquarters, Torik Park is where events such as the Katomayan Music and Dance Festival, and the Moonlight Sea Concert and Market of East Coast Land Arts Festival are held during the peak tourism seasons of spring and summer. The new form of domestic tourism combing tribal cultural heritage and local art and innovation allows visitors to enjoy the stunning scenery as well as the rich and diverse culture of the East Coast. After several years of accumulation, Torik Park not only provides complete tourist services, but also looks like a large art and culture gallery. In Torik Visitor Center, the work of East Coast artist Rahic Talif, Jouney in the Space of 50 Steps, is on exhibit permanently. In the outdoor space, with the green lawn and the unbeatable sea view as the backdrop, past works created by domestic and foreign artists from the East Coast Land Arts Festival are on display, such as Bathe in the Landscape: Silent Microcosm, The Most Powerful Gentleness, In Transition, Gaze from 5390 AD, and Waiting to Drift. All of them are popular among visitors for close interaction and photos.
Parking is easy at Torik Park. Those who prefer public transportation can take Taiwan Tourist Shuttle - East Coast Line and get off at the Amis Folk Center. To allow people who cannot visit in person to enjoy the East Coast scenery at Torik Park, in 2020, the East Coast National Scenic Area Headquarters set up a live camera above the visitor center.
