Why Hong Kong Park is special ?
What to explore at Hong Kong Park?
Start with the aviary. This is the largest in Hong Kong and is of the "walk-through" variety, with birds flying freely throughout the complex. An elevated walkway even allows you to explore the tree canopies. The stainless steel mesh building is, in itself, a sight to behold.
The 1,400 square meter conservatory is one of the largest in Southeast Asia. It's divided into three sections: the Display Plant House, the Dry Plant House, and the Humid Plant House. A range of climatic conditions are simulated so that visitors can experience everything from a tropical rain forest environment to an arid desert.

Hong Kong Park
Tips for you
We visited this park a few times during our 2 week stay in Hong Kong - great if you're travelling with toddlers (we had our twin 2.5 year olds with us). Great location (right off the MTR). Not very large park, but jammed with lots of things to do (as far as toddlers go). They have fountains that you can actually walk into; ponds full of turtles and Koi, waterfalls, Aviary, HUGE multi-layer playground, and what was most important for us: SHADE (we were travelling in the dead heat of HK Summer). Some days we made a special trip to the Park for the kids, other days, we strolled through it after visiting other closeby attractions. We liked it as it wasn't very packed or busy (of course that could be because we were the only ones crazy enough to be outside in the blistering heat!). The park was very clean, with many staff stationed at key points to help direct you to where you want to go. We were very grateful for this Park smack in the hustle and bustle of the City.
It's one of the best parks in Hong Kong. It's one of Hong Kong smallest parks, but it's a good place to relax in middle of the city
My kids loved this park - particularly the bird aviary. A great way to see the birds of Hong Kong. We came here after the Peak tram and it is walking distance from the tram terminal.
