GOING BY OUR constant visits to parks, one must think we love them a lot and that we are extremely free to do so. Well, yes (to the first) and no (to the second). We do love going to the parks (they are free, after all) – weather and time permit – and we try to make time for it. Often, it is these ordinary things we do that make life extraordinary.
On this date in 2010, I took the kids to Hong Kong Park. It was literally a walk down memory lane, as we returned to the very spots I took M when we first visited in March 2008. But this time around with Em our new addition to the family.
Here are memories of our first visit on 28th March 2008 next to our final visit on 6th October 2010.
Hong Kong Park on Cotton Tree Drive in Central, features man-made ponds, fountains and waterfalls. It also houses an aviary, a greenhouse, a playground, a tea ware museum, an arts centre and even a marriage registry. It is indeed a place that appeals to people from all walks of life, young and old. The public park is surrounded by high-rise buildings, making it truly a green oasis in HK’s concrete jungle.
