"Tennis, Foot Massage Trails and Pick Up Basketball" Victoria Park by Confucius
Victoria Park Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 23 photos
When I lived in Hong Kong my home was right across the street from Victoria Park in the neighborhood of Tin Hau. I used to go here to play pick-up games of basketball, teach tennis, and sneak into the big tournaments when the top players were in town.
In my photo you can see the last governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten, greeting tournament champion Mary Pierce while Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario wonders what to do with another second place piece of crystal.
Recently the entire park was renovated and foot massage paths were also installed. Take off your shoes and walk across the polished upright pebbles!
When Hong Kong people are not exercising their bodies in Victoria Park, they exercise their right of free speech. Whether it is commemorating the June 4, 1989 anniversary with thousands of candles or seeing how many football pitches they can fill up to demand direct elections, large crowds of orderly activists will assemble in Victoria Park and their collective voices are heard far away in Beijing.
If you happen to be in Hong Kong on June 4 or July 1, then feel free to join in on the comraderie and be included in the total police count estimate.
- Pros:Vast improvements with the recent park renovations
- Cons:Hoops didn't have nets before, but now they do! Thanks Hong Kong!
- In a nutshell:Still a great place to exercise and burn those dim sum calories
