Another park that we visited during our trip to Hong Kong was Hong Kong Park in Central area. This park is bigger than Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Garden and has many access to enter this park. So, this is our Hong Kong Park Review.
What’s in There ?
This is Hong Kong Park layout map. It has several sections:
Edward Youde Aviary
This area has a caged display area where all the aviary are caged and big dome with net where we can come inside the dome and interact with the aviary inside. When you enter this dome, you have to walk slowly and do not feed the aviary. They have a wooden path that’s quite big and accessible for stroller or wheelchair; It makes it very suitable for disable or elderly, and for those who bring young kids. Lala really enjoyed her time inside the dome, as she can see many kind of bird so close with her.
This conservatory has three thematic display plant from Dry Plant House, Humid Plant House and Butterfly and Dragonfly Corner. This conservatory has an air conditioner room, so we recommend you to visit here after play at the park so you can take a rest and kids can enjoy learning about the plants.
Beside aviary and conservatory, you can visit other facilities at the park, such as sports center, squash center, tai chi garden, house museum of teaware, Hong Kong visual art center and of course big children playground. Ah, we love this park!

Summary for Hong Kong Park Review
We really enjoyed this park, especially the aviary dome, because it gives a new experience for kids (like Lala) to interact with the birds in their natural habitat. Another part we enjoyed is the playground, since it hasthe sand area, and also the playground is very big so it can be used by many kids at the same time. In this Hong Kong Park Review, we recommend you to spend like half-day trip, and it will be better for you to bring some snacks for you and your kids.
