Sha Tin Park is a little known green space in Shatin. Part of the new town, it is a beautifully maintained park with a great view of Shing Mun River. A stroll along the riverfront is lovely.

Not at all crowded, well maintained, good flowers and trees. Very peaceful. Good to sit relax and eat sandwiches waste time. Near the river but not all that scenic with all big buildings nearby

This park is located beside the river and only a few minutes walk from the city centre plaza and train station. It has an open-air pavilion. There is a play park for children.

Coming across these gardens was a bit of a surprise, but we walked through them a few times and it is a very beautiful and peaceful place. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the trees are labelled.

I'm always surprised by how relaxing and enjoyable Sha Tin Park can be, especially after enduring the maddening crowds of New Town Plaza Mall just beside the park. One of the things I like about the Sha Tin Park are the traditional Chinese style gardens...More

Sai Kung (10 Replies)
Planning a visit to Sha Tin Park and the 10,000 Buddah monastry and were wondering if it would also be worthwhile to visit Sai Kung which seems to be fairly close? We are fit and active, and wondering if these 3 places all doable in a day? Also, I understand that the road to Sai Kung is somewhat restricted and was wondering what the reason is? Would love to hear any advice from the experts on visiting these 3 places. Thanks very much

there is a saikung website created by residents there - explore saikung loads of info, and you can ask the residents there about the road closure among other things
Sha Tin Racecourse visit ???? (3 Replies)
Hello again ! We are now geared up for our 10day trip beginning next week to Macau and HK. While we are in HK (for 7 days) - we have learnt that there is a horse race in the morning / afternoon at the ShaTin racecourse on Sat Nov 06. We had planned earlier to go to Sha Tin on this day anyway - mainly to see the place and visit the Sha Tin park, do cycling, etc. Since we are already there, we are wondering whether it would be worth a visit to this famous racecourse - but as TOURISTS? -...More

The entrance fee for the race course is HK$10 and of course you do not have to bet on anything if you don't want to. The station is Racecourse on the East rail line but listen to the announcement at any station on the East Rail line cos only every other train is stopping at that station.
