The area
Neighborhood: Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
How to get there

Small urban park and oasis in the heart of the Central District
Jan 2021
This is a small urban park found next to St. John's Cathedral along Queen's Road Central. The grounds are managed and maintained by the Cheung Kong Holdings company and is open to the public to enjoy.

The park includes benches, shaded seating and a short series of walking paths situated around man made ponds, cascades amidst some nice trees and landscaped grounds. The park is designed to present visitors with a relaxing oasis and reprieve from the urban hustle and bustle which surrounds the Cheung Kong Park.

Tiny, Hidden Oasis in Central Hong Kong
Aug 2020
This is less a park, and more a pretty set of paths that lead through landscaped gardens and water features. It is a small area, sitting right above Queens Rd Central, linking Queens Rd with St Johns Church and Cotton Tree Drive. You wouldn't seek it out or go out of your way. However, if you are close by, it is a nice shortcut which takes you away from the busy main roads.
It’s a tiny hidden oasis and the lush landscaping, faux grottos and stepped waterfalls take you completely by surprise. There is a lovely sense that you have discovered a secret hidden garden.
However if you are looking for a real park with large open spaces, then you should head to either Hong Kong Park or the Botanic Gardens & Zoo. Both are nearby.
From Central, you can cut through Cheung Kong Park to Cottontree Drive where you can enter Hong Kong Park. Here you will find extensive gardens, a waterfall, colonial buildings, an artificial lake, turtles and an aviary (see separate review).

Refreshing
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is a beautiful little park amidst the skyscrapers of Central. You pass it on the way back from the lower Peak Tram terminus on the way to Central Station. It is unique in the sense that all landmarks are artificial like the stream, waterfall and grotto. It feels cooler in the park due to the ample shade. There are a few benches for resting but since walkways are narrow, it is not really suitable for a picnic except a light snack. During rush hours it is used by commuters using it as a pedestrian short cut to or from work or just to cool off a bit. They walk quickly and with determination so those hours may not be the best time for casual photography. No restrooms or water fountains but there are public toilets just a few steps west of the lower (southern) entrance.

Shady park next to St.John's Cathedral
Dec 2018 • Couples
It's always lovely to find a quiet green space in a busy city, Cheung Kong park is located on a hill in Central District near St.John's Cathedral. Small and a little unusual with faux grottoes, casading waterfalls and no grass but definitely a good find for a place to relax under the shade of the trees and towering tall buildings.

A nice resting place
Sep 2018 • Solo
Hong Kong has a lot of places where you will see signs like sitting places and resting places. Cheung Kong Park is one of these perfectly designed places to rest. If you are an office worker or a tourist. This square designed park with some nice trees is perfect to sit and reflect or just sit. Almost Japanese looking in its design without the cherry blossom trees. 5 minutes from the peak tram terminus and 5 minutes from Central MRT, in-fact it’s pretty much bang in the middle between the 2. Free entry but have a little talk to the trees when you visit I think they very much appreciate it.

Small Park near Hong Kong Park
Jan 2018 • Couples
The Cheung Kong Park is a Small Park near Hong Kong Park. It’s a nice hideaway for local workers and visitors alike. It’s worth sitting and relaxing here for a while.

This is one of three gardens on this area called “Three Garden Road”.

A hidden gem amongst towering giants
Aug 2016
It's a nice green nature refuge from all the towering financial centers surroundings - flowing water, falling water, lots of greenery - it's a delight walking through or up and down the steps.
Every city should have more of this.

Nice little park a few steps from St. John's Cathedral
May 2016 • Solo
Squeezed between Cheung Kong Center and St John’s Cathedral, this park is popular at lunch time with office workers, and with Filipina maids during their week-end day off. It is small but well designed, with a lot of shade, waterfalls and flows, nice trees. Many birds have long recognized its attraction. This park is not a destination as such but a most welcome resource that may well entice you to slow down and make a pleasant stop in the area.

Oasis in the city

Most people walk through this park in less than 5 minutes but it connects two office locations. It is small but a great place to hangout during lunch to enjoy quiet moment.
