Taoyuan County (桃園縣, pinyin: Toyun Xin, WG: T'ao-yan Hsien) is a county of Taiwan Province, Republic of China, located in the northwestern part of the island, next to Taipei County. Taoyuan City is located in this county and serves as the seat of Taoyuan County.

"Taoyuan" means "peach garden," since the area used to have many peach blossoms. Taoyuan is the native home to the Pingpu tribe of Aborigines. It is now an important industrial region of Taiwan. Chiang Kai Shek International Airport, which serves Taipei, is inside this county.
