Fenghuang Suspension Bridge(鳳凰吊橋)spans the Zhu River (竹溪) and connects old Zhuxi Temple(竹溪寺) and Tainan City Sports Park. The 25-metre long bridge was built in 1982. It is small but matches perfectly with the surrounding scenery. It is not known why it was named Fenghuang Suspension Bridge “Phoenix Bridge”; it could be because Tainan is also known as Phoenix City or it was named after the flame trees that stand nearby (called phoenix trees in Chinese). In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the Zhu River was a popular travel destination for the literati. The murmuring river is lined with dense bamboo forest. The misty rain of the Zhu River was once regarded as one of the beautiful sights of Tainan.
