Background of Hong Kong Park

Opened in May 1991, Hong Kong Park was built at the upper half of the former Victoria Barracks Planning Committee. In 1979, the local government made a decision to develop a half of the barracks into a park. The project was carried out at the cost of 398 million HK$. Up to now, there remains a cluster of historic buildings built between 1842 and 1910. remaining relics include Flagstaff House (currently the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware), Rawlinson House (currently the office of HK Park and Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry, Wavell House (currently the Education Center) and Cassels Block (currently the Visual Arts center). In the centre of Hong Kong Park, the Forsgate Conservatory and Edward Youde Aviary can be reached easily by walking through the Pacific Place and nearby escalator. People can take in the sights of artificial lakes and waterfalls in the Central Garden which was converted from the former tennis court of the barracks. What’s more, most old and valuable trees are well-preserved in Hong Kong Park. Some of them even have been included into the list of "ancient and rare trees''.
