Top ways to experience Victoria Park and nearby attractions

The area
Neighborhood: Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
How to get there
  • Tin Hau • 5 min walk

Victoria Park is a large scale city park in Causeway Bay. It was built upon the reclaimed grounds of the old typhoon shelter in the 1950s and given a major make-over in the early 2000s. These days, it serves as an important leisure and recreation grounds throughout the year as well as a venue location for major events including an annual Flower Market for Chinese New Year.

Victoria Park is laid out with tennis courts, basketball courts, swimming pool, running paths and tree lined walkways with flower beds. There are artificial pools for remote control boats, large fountain on the west end of the park as well as a statue of Queen Victoria on the southern entrance to the park.

You can reach Victoria Park by way of Ding Ding when it runs along Causeway Road or by way of MTR, closest station being Tain Hau Station just northeast of the park.

Visited Victoria Park a couple of times during our recent trip to Hong-Kong. Went to see the display of lanterns for the Mid Autumn Festival 23 and for the Fire Dragon Dance a couple of days later. Both times, the park was well maintained and very clean and events were very well run.

Causeway Bay is one of the most crowded and busiest cities in HK and also with thousands of concrete buildings
To get away from that world this is the best place in CWB
A large park with many green and areas to sit and relax

Day or night , just go there and refresh your mind and body

In the center of the busy, chaotic town, Victoria Park is an ideal place to rest. Great for a children picnic, a jog or watching local people play football pickup matches in the afternoon. There are plenty of tropical trees, flowers and benches to sit on while children are playing on playgrounds.

This is a good park in Hong Kong Island with a wide variety of public services, leisure facilities and green space. Victoria Park offers a break from the fanatically busy and crowded part of HK. While not a world class park like those found in NYC, London, Sydney just to name a few, Victoria Park is good enough and is potentially worth seeking out if you need to get away the chaos of the city without going all the way out to places like Sai Kung, Lamma or Lantau Island.

At Victoria Park you can find the original Queen Victoria Statue, that use to be located at Exchange (Statue) Square in Central. This is the parks link to Hong Kong's history. You can also find leisure grounds and facilities including tennis courts, soccer fields, basketball courts, swimming pools as well as a bowling green. There is also a jogging path, traditional pebble path and even some slightly wooded areas for walking. For families there are playground areas and a green if you just want to sit out on the grass. There is also a fun pool designated for motorboats models. Here you can watch locals playing with their water toys, some going quite fast!

During the Chinese New Year period there is a huge flower parade, which is the most popular of its kind in Hong Kong during this festive period. Also, there is a Chinese New Year fair at Victoria Park that is very fun, endless stalls, vendors, foods, souvenirs and sights to see. However, it must be noted that the crowds during the CNY period at Victoria Park are unbelievable at times, making it potentially difficult to have a good time. Many actually avoid the park during this time, as the rest of the city descends upon this area.

Overall, Victoria Park is one of our two or three favourite parks in Hong Kong. It is not on par with classics like Central Park in NYC or Hyde Park in London. But in overcrowded cities like Hong Kong, any green space is good and Victoria Park exceeds the basic park standards. It is a very good place to escape the normal crowds while in the Causeway Bay and North Point area of HK Island (assuming it is not the park itself that is generating the crowds - like during the Chinese New Year period).

Victoria Park is accessible by both the Causeway Bay and Tin Hau MTR Station.

The statue of Queen Victoria, seated in the park.

We went there because of the Hong Kong Flower Show 2011 in the park. Besides, there are some other events held in the park included Lunar New Year Fair (年宵市場), the Hong Kong Brands and Products Expo.

The Mid-Autumn Festival has kicked off in Hong Kong so we made our annual pilgrimage to Victoria Park last night to see the 'one2free Lantern Wonderland'. This is Hong Kong's the annual Mid-Autumn carnival that runs during the week leading up into Mid-Autumn Festival (14-22 September 2013) and holiday weekend.

We visited early this year to avoid the heavy crowds that descend upon Victoria Park to enjoy the festivities during the upcoming holiday weekend, this is a recommendable time to visit if you want to take pictures with fewer people in the camera frame and want a bit more walking space. It will be very crowded at the park this coming weekend.

This year, there are many food and animal - lantern creations scattered around the park grounds and they are nice to see, particularly if you have children.

They have set up a 10-meter high structure this year, called the Rising Moon. This is a half-spherical creation of recycled water containers, engineered with lighting and set upon a artificial pool so as to create a clever illusion of being a full moon rising. It is set to an interesting fusion of up-tempo music and traditional Chinese instrumental play, creating a interesting musical programme that you can listen to while queueing to visit the 'Rising Moon', which you can walk through. We liked the clever full moon concept that they had created and appreciated the 'green' and 'environmental' message they were attempting to get across as part of this years event.

If you visit on 18-20 September, you can also catch the annual Tai Hang Dragon Dance, which will be performed twice each evening, this is a 67-meter dragon, with a massive 48 kg dragon head and a show that features around 300 performers. It is very interesting to see if you've never witnessed a dragon parade or performance like this before. Just be warned, the crowds are very heavy at the time of the dragon dance performances.

As with past years, there are booths set-up, selling local foods, snacks, treats, lanterns, balloons and other souvenirs. Oddly, we couldn't find any of the traditional bakery companies in the booths this year so you'll need to visit the normal street and mall based bakeries this year to buy your preferred moon cakes.

Overall, The Mid-Autumn Festival at Victoria Park is one of the best times of the year to visit this park. This year's 'Rising Moon' structure is interesting to see as are the many lantern creations scattered around the park. This is presently a highly recommendable activity for visitors to Hong Kong.

Tip: You can learn more about on the Discover Hon g Kong Mid-Autumn Festival webpage, on the holiday weekend. We were very pleased with the many lantern creations that were on display, many being of animal and food scenes.

We sometimes have a walk through Victoria Park when visiting Causeway Bay. While not normally our favorite park in Hong Kong, we do quite enjoy stopping by here during the Mid-Autumn festival period, visiting the fair that is set-up within the park.

This year, there was a giant, onion looking structure that you could walk through and take pictures of (unfortunately the queue to enter was long). There are also many traditional Chinese seasonal displays spread out around the park as well as booths selling Mid-Autumn festival candles, lights, lanterns, souvenirs, treats and lovely moon cakes. Traditional dances, other performances and massive crowds make up the rest of the experience at Victoria Park during the Mid-Autumn festival.

Overall, some don't enjoy the heavy crowds that descend upon Victoria Park during holiday festivals. We don't mind so much these days, finding it nice to see so many local families out with smiles on their faces. And when you are nibbling on a nice moon cake, nothing seems that bad!

Victoria Park is located in Causeway Bay, a town in Hong Kong. It is a combination of a mini zoo (holding animals like peacocks and turtles), a running track, numerous picnic spots and a children's park. Basically a mini Central Park (New York). The park is the home of many festivals, and many times a year you'll see a gathering of thousands. For example, if you go to the park during the famous Lantern Festival which takes place sometime during the summer months, you will see the park filled up at night with candles and various types of lanterns. During New Years Eve, the place is once again packed since every year a countdown takes place there. Once a year a fair takes place in the main ground of the park, selling different types of clothing from many different countries. Also, many shows such as the famous flower show takes place twice a year bringing in more visitors from all across the world.
