The amount of glass, steel and concrete in Hong Kong can be overwhelming but the city has several beautiful green lungs, the biggest and most central of which is Hong Kong Park.
Like everything in this city the park is innovative and modern. The design blends the sleek architecture of the surrounding areas with a more natural landscape. On a stroll you will find lush green fields and trees set against a backdrop of skyscrapers. The park's main motif is “flowing water,” and different areas are linked together by running streams, waterfalls and ponds.
The biggest attraction here is the Edward Youde aviary which features pink flamingos, vibrant parrots, goofy hornbills and many more species. Also spread out among the greenery are several historical sites including the former British army barracks. Between exploring the many playgrounds, sculptures and gardens it would be easy to forget you're in Hong Kong at all.
