    #1 is fine if there is one train station in Taipei.
    #2 is possible if the speaker is referring to one (previously mentioned) of several train stations in Taipei.
    #3 could be possible if the place he stayed is called 'Youth Park'.
    #4 is possible if if there are parks, known as 'youth parks' (without capital letters) set aside for young people, and he stayed in one that has already been mentioned.
