I think that I've probably covered the vast majority of what there is to do in the park, except for the park itself. This is another one of the many green spaces that dot an otherwise polluted city. Thanks to the humid and subtropical climate of Hong Kong, a myriad of plant and animal life can flourish here, delighting visitors of all ages. There are many different trees that have been imported from other Asian countries, as well as various flowers and flowering bushes. The ponds have fish and turtles in them - sure to delight children. There are a few places where vendors sell ice cream and drinks, but for the most part the park is remarkably free of hawkers, allowing visitors to laze away an afternoon and relax in the tranquillity of the park. The Queensway and Cotton Tree Drive entrance was covered with lanterns when I was there, but I'm not sure if this was a special thing, or something permanent.

Address: Cotton Tree Drive and Queensway
Directions: Near the Admiralty Station
