The Top 15 Parks in Hong Kong to Visit

Hong Kong is a busy city that can sometimes feel suffocating. Luckily, there are plenty of green spaces where you can easily escape.  

There’s a wide range of parks all over town to do various outdoor activities you could think of. In this article, we’ll explore the top 15 parks in Hong Kong that we think worth visiting!

1. Hong Kong Park


Address: 19號 Cotton Tree Dr, Central, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2521 5041

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Sunday – 6 AM to 11 PM 

Price: Free (not including the Sports Centre and the Squash Centre)

Making up 8.16 hectares of the town, one of the Hong Kong Park’s highlights is its stunning artificial lake. It adds to its tranquil ambiance, making it one of the top spots to stroll in. 

As you would expect, there are numerous facilities that make it worth visiting. Our personal favorite is the Central Garden that has a beautiful promenade lined with luscious trees. 

There’s a fountain in the middle where people can sit down to take a break from walking. Aside from that, we also recommend the Olympic Square and Tai Chi Garden. 

However, there are also other spots to explore, so make sure to look around if you have time!

Pro tip:

Don’t miss out on the vantage point in Hong Kong Park. It’s a tower with 105 steps that will lead you to the top where there’s a beautiful view of the park. 

2. Sai Kung East Country Park


Address: Sai Kung, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2792 7365

Operating hours: 24 hours

The Sai Kung East Country Park is something that should be explored for a full day because there are numerous things to see. It’s 4,495 hectares wide and is also part of the UNESCO Global Geopark, so it has been recognized for its natural geological wonders. 

The most famous sight found in this park (and the one we most recommend) is Sharp Peak, which got its name because of its pointy top. People come here to hike and appreciate the scenery, so make sure to wear sensible shoes and bring your cameras! 

Pro tip:

You can also visit the famous Sai Kung East Country Park beaches if you’re in the area, specifically the Tai Long Wan and Long Ke. The former is much better for surfing because of the strong currents, so we suggest going to Long Ke instead to swim. 

3. Kowloon Walled City Park


Address: Kowloon City, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2716 9962

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Sunday – 6:30 AM to 11 PM 

This one’s a bit different from the other parks in Hong Kong because Kowloon Walled City Park tells a part of Hong Kong’s dark history. It used to be the capital of crime in Hong Kong until it was abolished in 1987. 

This park shows preserved parts of the walled city, though, which makes up a very interesting afternoon walk.

Some things you can see at the Kowloon Walled City Park are the old South gate remains, The Garden of Chinese Zodiac, and the Mountain View Pavilion.

While there are other sights to see, these are just our favorite ones. With that in mind, don’t be afraid to explore and discover things for yourself! In fact, we highly recommend it.  

Pro tip:

After checking out the Kowloon Walled City Park, we suggest going to the TAP – The Ale Project to grab a drink or two. Order an Oatmeal Stout if you want a delicious craft beer that’s smooth and not bitter. 

4. Kowloon Tsai Park


Address: 13號 Inverness Rd, Kowloon City, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2336 7878

Operating hours: 24 hours 

Price: Free (not including the natural turf soccer pitch, sports ground, swimming pool, and artificial turf soccer pitches)

The Kowloon Tsai Park is the perfect park for the entire family to enjoy. There are numerous things you and your kids can do here like playing football and basketball, swimming, running, etc. There’s even a playground, a dog garden, and more!  

While most people go here to do various activities together, the highlight of this park is actually its 120 Bauhinia trees. 

Pro tip:

To fully enjoy the Bauhinia trees in this park, we suggest going here around November to March! 

5. Tsing Yi Park


Address: 60 Tsing King Rd, Tsing Yi, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2435 0533

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Sunday – 5:30 AM to 11:30 PM 

Price: Free

Inspired by European style, Tsing Yi Park is a spot a lot of people frequent because of how close it is to the MTR station. There are plenty of crowds during the weekend. 

Though it might not be perfect if you’re up for a more peaceful stroll, there are beautiful views here that make it worth the visit. 

For example, the park lakes are striking and the notable architecture is a nice touch. There are also plenty of amenities people can enjoy here like tennis courts, Tai Chi garden, large waterfall, and such. 

Pro tip: 

One of our favorite things about Tsing Yi Park is when trees that surround it turn into a beautiful shade of orange during fall. With that in mind, if you’re in Hong Kong during that time, make sure to swing by here!

6. Victoria Park 


Address: 1 Hing Fat St, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2890 5824

Operating hours: 24 hours

One of the most famous parks in Hong Kong is Victoria Park. It’s quite well known for its flower markets that attract a huge crowd during the Chinese New Year. 

Anyway, locals also go here to enjoy the gym equipment and play different kinds of sports like soccer, basketball, and more. 

Pro tip:

While you’re here, you should definitely stop by Ichiran. It’s a famous ramen chain that’s quite well known in Japan. To give you an idea of how popular it is, you’ll almost never catch an Ichiran store without a long line of people outside. This one in Hong Kong is no different, but don’t let that stop you. Trust us, it’s worth the wait!

7. Lion Rock Country Park 


Address: Sha Tin, Hong Kong

Operating hours: 24 hours

If you’re on the lookout for a nice, scenic hiking trail, you might want to give Lion Rock Country Park a visit. It got its name from the lion-shaped rock that can be found on a plateau. 

We spend at least 4 hours hiking here including the time for rest, photo taking, and so on. However, we find that 2 ½ hours is enough if you don’t need that extra time. 

Pro tip:

Another spot you shouldn’t miss while at the Lion Rock Country Park is Amah Rock. It’s quite famous for its shape because it looks like a mother carrying her child. You can find this on the top of the entrance to Lion Rock Tunnel. 

8. Lai Chi Kok Park


Address: 1號, Lai Wan Rd, Lai Chi Kok, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2307 0429

Operating hours: 24 hours

Price: Free

Lai Chi Kok Park is one of the spots known to locals who love to play outdoor sports. There is gym equipment here and plenty of space to facilitate a game of tennis, soccer, and more. 

Moreover, we think you’d enjoy a peaceful time here on a picnic blanket and eating pastries while sipping tea. 

Our favorite thing about going to Lai Chi Kok Park is that it’s like a haven outside the city. Because of the tall trees, the towering skyscrapers will disappear from your view. With how dense the buildings are in Hong Kong, this says a lot! 

Pro tip:

Surprisingly, Lai Chi Kok Park is almost never crowded. Because of that, you can easily enjoy this tranquil space no matter what day it is. 

9. Lung Fu Shan Country Park


Address: 92 Pok Fu Lam Rd, Sandy Bay Gap, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 6042 1874

Operating hours: 24 hours

A few minutes outside the city center, the Lung Fu Shan Country Park is the escape you need from the seemingly endless hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. 

Plenty of people go here to enjoy the hiking trails filled with luscious trees that provide visitors plenty of shade. 

Aside from its hiking trails, one of the highlights of Lung Fu Shan Country Park is the Pinewood Battery, an ancient military fort from 1903. If you enjoy seeing historical landmarks, we suggest stopping by here too. 

Otherwise, you can go over the two beautiful picnic areas at the park where you can enjoy a peaceful time surrounded with scenic views. 

Pro tip:

If you’re looking for some quick refreshments during your hike, there are numerous stalls that’s nearby the Peak Tram Station. 

10. Kiu Tsui Country Park 


Operating hours: 24 hours 

Another park in Hong Kong you should try giving a visit is the Kiu Tsui Country Park. It’s considered the smallest country park in Hong Kong. However, that isn’t to say there aren’t a lot of things to explore here. 

The top highlights of this park are the tombolo and Hap Mun Bay. 

Tombolo is a unique geological wonder that is even more amazing to see in person. This specific tombolo is considered unique because it’s enveloped with quartz monzonite boulders. 

Meanwhile, Hap Mun Bay is known to be a great spot for kayaking, swimming, and even jet skiing. 

Pro tip:

If you’re coming from Sharp Island, we suggest going to its highest point if you want to see a spectacular view of the Kiu Tsui Bay. This vantage point can be found at the circular path that could take you to the southern part of Hap Mun Bay. 

11. Tamar Park


Address: Harcourt Rd, Admiralty, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2520 2321

Operating hours: 24 hours

Tamar Park is one of the more modern parks in Hong Kong because the buildings that surround the area gives it a more urban vibe. 

We find the interesting combination of city and nature quite interesting, which is one of the reasons you might find staff members from Happy Hongkonger enjoying their lunch break here. 

You can also enjoy a gallery that also fronts as a cafe called iBakery Gallery if you’re in the area. You can also lookout for art installations that would sometimes be scattered around the park for visitors to enjoy. 

Pro tip:

We find that this is one of the most peaceful spots where you can get a clear view of the harbour. Great for photography!

12. Aberdeen Country Park 


Address: Aberdeen, Hong Kong

Operating hours: 24 hours

Aberdeen Country Park is a disabled-friendly park. In fact, it’s said to be the only park in Hong Kong that has a picnic area specially for the disabled. 

One can even get the chance to enjoy the scenery with the wheelchair-friendly trails around the area. 

Anyway, another thing we discovered about this park is the beautiful vantage point where you can get an unhindered view of Ap Lei Chau and Aberdeen. There are several signs that point you in this direction, so you don’t have to worry about missing it. 

Pro tip:

Bring your swimsuits with you because you can cool down by swimming in the lakes at Aberdeen Country Park. 

13. Hong Kong Wetland Park


Address: Wetland Park Rd, Tin Shui Wai, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 3152 2666

  • Monday, Wednesday to Sunday – 10 AM to 5 PM 
  • Tuesday – closed


  • Standard – HK $30
  • Children (3 to 11 years old), students, people with disabilities, senior (65 years old and above) – HK $15

This one’s quite different from the other parks we mentioned so far. Hong Kong Wetland park is actually a conservation park that aims to spread awareness about wetland conservation. 

With that in mind, by going to this park, you’ll be able to help with the conservation as well. 

Anyway, there are tons of things you can enjoy seeing here, but our favorite would be the Wetland Discovery Centre. Not only will you be able to learn more about wetlands while you’re here, you’ll also get to discover wetland animals and study about stream and pond life. 

Pro tip:

We suggest bringing some binoculars here if you want to spot animals that inhabit the park!

14. Belcher Bay Park


Address: Belcher Bay Park, Praya, Kennedy Town, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2853 2575

Operating hours: 24 hours

While more intended for kids of its children’s playground, adults would also enjoy their time at the Belcher Bay Park. Most of the time, it’s quiet so you can go here to relax. 

The highlight of this park is the numerous street lights around it, each with a unique design, making Belcher Bay Park quite quirky and fun to explore.  

Pro tip:

The waterfront promenade is quite nearby. Head over there during the sunset to enjoy a striking view of it!

15. Morse Park


Address: 40 Fung Mo St, Wang Tau Hom, Hong Kong

Contact details: +852 2323 9665

Operating hours: 24 hours 

This list wouldn’t be complete without Morse Park. Considered as one of the largest parks in Hong Kong, this is where you should go if you’re particularly looking for a wide green space. 

Aside from being a haven of natural wonders in the middle of busy Hong Kong, you can also enjoy several activities here. 

This includes skateboarding, swimming, football, and the like. Our favorite thing to do when we’re in Morse Park, though, is to go to Wong Tai Sin Cultural Garden. While its theme is Chinese culture, there are also Western influences to its design. 

Go here if you want to get a taste of what Chinese gardens are like. 

Pro tip:

Remember how we mentioned there’s a flower market at Victoria Park during Chinese New Year? Well, if you want to avoid crowds during that time, Morse Park is a great alternative!
