Kowloon Park, Hong Kong

Kowloon Park was just a short walk from our hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui.  The park itself is large and made up of a number of distinct areas you can explore.  From the sculpture park where we sat and watched people doing tai chi to a public swimming pool, children’s playground and even a free museum.

We actually spent a good few hours at the park and also returned a couple of times to just sit, watch the people go by and use the free wifi in the park.

There is also a small, free museum in the park.  The Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre.  This is well worth a visit if you have a spare hour or so for a small taste of the history of Hong Kong.  I did a short blog post on their Ming Dynasty room and its link to Disney.

This McDonald's booth seemed to sell only icecreams and sundaes - not something I have seen before

There are a large number of ducks, swans and other water fowl in the park.  Mum got particularly excited about this Black-necked Swan as she's never seen one in person before.
