Don't miss the chance to visit Hong Kong Park, a natural oasis right in the center of the city. Covering an area of 8 hectares (20 acres), the park is nestled among modern skyscrapers, in a location once occupied by British colonial barracks. Many examples of the original Victorian architecture are still preserved within the park. Other highlights include Hong Kong's largest aviary and a greenhouse housing a selection of exotic plants. The park includes numerous facilities, including basketball courts, squash center, and playgrounds for children.
