    Oddly enough, situated directly opposite Plaza Hollywood.

    Well, I thought it was an interesting juxtaposition.

    Even the garden was small, there were different kinds of animals, birds, pretty flowers and plants there. The condition was comfortable and not crowded. Resting place was provided. A good place for relaxation. Such landscaped garden was suitable for the family also. There was about 15-20 minutes walking from Central MTR station. It was real attraction although Green House was closed due to COVID-19.

    The Kadoorie Farm and Botanical Garden is located in the valley along Lam Kam Road between Tai Po and Yuen Long and is most easily accessible by way of bus route 64K. Opening hours are 9.30am to 5pm daily and entry fees are HK$40 (adults) and HK$20 (children aged 5-11).

    Note: The Kadoorie grounds are on the slope of a mountain. As such, you can purchase shuttle ticket (HK$10 per adult, HK$5 per child) and be driven to various drop off points from which you can walk back down to the entrance to the farm. Or take your time and walk upwards through the farm and garden grounds and take the shuttle back if you purchase ticket along with your entry fee.

    This organisation is dedicated to nature conservation, rescue and rehabilitation of native animals, some of which are endangered or rarely seen and education about sustainable living. Particularly impressive are the efforts towards rescued animals. There are numerous facilities spread around the grounds, where you can view leopard cats, muntjac (barking) deer, bats, raptors, interesting reptiles and other animals in respectable enclosures. There is often information provided about the animals including names and ages if interested.

    You will also find a lovely stream with surfaced walking paths and beautiful gardening and landscaping. This is a delightful area to walk and enjoy being in nature. Some benches and picnic spots can be found here and at other tranquil garden areas within Kadoorie as well.

    There is an area dedicated to sustainable farming examples and education. You'll find a farm shop and cafe called the Sun Garden Cafe near the entrance. There are public toilets in various locations within the kadoorie grounds. Note, best to print or download the Kadoorie map and layout before setting off to explore as you will quickly learn how large of an area is included. It can be a bit tricky finding particular enclosures if you don't know your way around.

    In the end, the location is a bit inconvenient of those in the city but the experience is rewarding for anyone who wants to spend 1/2 to 3/4 of a day in a valley countryside close to nature, especially a good option for those with children.

    The Tamar Park was an urban park and its promenade was highlight point – linked Wanchai and Central districts. The visitors could admire excellent harbour views of Hong Kong through viewing platforms and saw Central Ferry Pier and observation wheel. The area of lawn was big size so the environment was not crowned and comfortable. Such park was suitable for the family and the location was convenient – near Admiralty MTR station.

    A short walk from the Mong Kok Flower Market. Architecture and layout of the garden nothing to write home about. Now if you are interested in purchasing birds and all manners of supplies, or getting a glimpse of traditional Chinese way of keeping birds complete with their small cages then it is fine. But if you hate seeing birds housed in cramped conditions then stay away (but then, considering the cramped living conditions most folks in Hong Kong find themselves to be in, perhaps one should not complain).

    This is certainly not a destination garden, but it is beautifully-landscaped and a restful setting in the midst of the downtown. Many people have described it as 'an oasis', which is a good description.

    This is the largest city park in the New Territories. It is located between the Tuen Mun MTR Station and Town Centre and includes 12.5 hectares of much needed rural and leisure space for those in Tuen Mun.

    There are some interesting features within the park including a large artificial lake, a long series of cascades, and Reptile House with around 25 animals on exhibit. There is a two-sectioned innovative children's play area, elderly exercise equipment, jogging and walking paths, model boat pond, small amphitheatre, nice landscaping and flower beds, and some really impressive large tree specimen providing shade.

    Overall, this is a nice park and much needed green space in the busy town of Tuen Mun. It is a good place for those with residents, visitors and particularly those with children wanting to get away from the crowded streets and malls in the area.

    There is a small square shaped urban space squeezed in between Salisbury Road and Mody Road & Empire Centre and Intercontinental Stanford Hotel in TST East. This is the Mody Road Garden, which is basically an extension of the Urban Council Centenary Garden which is divided from this garden by Mody Road.

    What is interesting about the Mody Road Garden section is the Cultural Backyard (City Dress Up) configuration of colourful geometric shaped instillations found here. These are fun for the kiddies. As are the three bronze hats that are installed here in the garden. There is a bit of landscaping here and some expected park seats as well.

    You can skip this square. Except for a few shops and couple coffee shops that's it.
    I personally find this area a bit untidy. You can also see dried meat and susages hanging from some shop windows.

    If you are looking for shopping u can try elsewhere.

    As part of the French May (2019) celebration in Hong Kong, there is an interesting exhibition at the Sha Tin Town Hall called 'Legend of the 20th century Art by Niki de Sant Phalle being held from 5 May to 2 June 2019. Opening hours are 10am to 8pm daily.

    You can also find outdoor installations of Niki de Saint Phalle, the French-American sculptor in the City Art Plaza space in front of New Town Plaza entrance, just across from the Town Hall.

    The sculptures are eccentric contemporary forms of human figures with colourful mosaic attire. The sculptures are of interesting shape and composition, providing visitors something unique and different to look at when passing through New Town Plaza shopping mall and the Sha Tin Park area of the city.

    Get off at Diamond Hill MTR exit c and follow the signs outside to Chi Lin Nunnery.

    The gardens are a beautiful escape from the traffic of the city.

    A real good place to collect your thoughts and bin the bad ones!

    While here you might as well visit the monastery/nunnery of Chi Lin.

    Quiet and peaceful garden located behind the Wong Tai sin temple. Garden is very well maintained and is a nice place to enjoy some quiet time with nature amidst of busy city life of Hong Kong.

    This is a small urban park situated east of Austin Station and west of Jordan Station on the Kowloon Peninsula. It is 1.5 acres in size and one of two parks in Hong Kong dedicated to King George V. The other is in Sai Ying Pun on Hong Kong Island. The Kowloon park was opened in 1941 and originally included a statue of King George V. However, it along with the park facilities were destroyed during the Japanese occupation.

    After WWII, traditional Chinese pavilion structures were built within the park grounds. You can also see a traditional Chinese style park entrance on the north side as well as some nice landscaping with wooden pavilion and grotto rock formations. Plenty of park benches with fair shade from the mature trees found within the park grounds. Football pitch and children's playground area round out the King George V Park in Kowloon.

    On the whole, it is a nice little urban park and opportunity for area residents to escape the busy street scenes on all sides. Worth a few minutes for a brief sit down if in the area and in need of a rest. Otherwise, you're not too far from the much larger and interesting Kowloon Park around 5 minutes walk south if this is what you are looking for.

    Wan Chai Park is a fair sized public park wedged in between Bulluck and Cross Lane to the north and Queen's Road East to the south in the district of Wanchai. It has expected park features including a children's playground area, football pitch as well as a small motorboat pool and a surprising amount of shaded park benches.

    This is not a park to target compared to the much larger and more interesting Victoria Park in nearby Causeway Bay or Hong Kong Park the other direction in Admiralty and Central. However, if you are in this area of Wanchai and want to get away from the busy city streets, its a fair rural and green spot to get off your feet for a bit of a rest.

    Nina Fossil Garden is located at outdoor area of Nina Tower. It Covers an area of approximately 80,000 sq ft. It displays a collection of tree fossils. There are very few visitors and the guided tour has been suspended. There are only very few pieces of signage to introduce the formation of fossils, so it is difficult to know more about the fossils without the tour.
