Hong Kong Parks

All though well known as a busy metropolitan city some visitors may be surprised to know that there are in fact many parks here, but in Hong Kong the word "Park" covers a wide range of different types.  Here are some of the ones that may interest you.

City Parks

The city parks of Hong Kong, mainly operated by the government, combine green trees with public facilities such as running tracks, basket ball courts and sitting out areas for the elderly.  Exercise equipment, both playgrounds for children and special devices for the elderly, are also common.

Victoria Park - Probably the most important park in the city area this large part of Causeway Bay is split between green gardens with trees and open concreted sports pitches which are also used for popular open air events such as the Lunar New Year Fair and the Hong Kong Flower Show.  Don't miss also the model boat pool and the small lookout hill.

Turtle pond in Hong Kong ParkHong Kong Park - Located on a hilly section of Victoria Peak just above the bustling business districts this mixed park holds historic buildings, Flagstaff House, a walk through aviary and pool with waterfall that is a popular place for wedding photographs. Dine in the small cafe, visit the Teaware Museum or just watch the locals enjoying a lunch break away from the office.

Kowloon Park - The biggest of the city parks this includes an Aviary, a sculpture garden and many nooks and crannies that are as popular with dating couples as they are with adventurous children. Visit the nearby Islamic Center and Mosque and the Antiquities Information centre.

Nan Lian Garden - A modern built but classically designed Chinese garden this features the hills, ponds, twisted trees and rocks popular in the Tang Dynasty.  Located at nearby Diamond Hill it is just a 5 minute drive from Kowloon City.
