Kowloon Park


A nature walk can perhaps be one of the most therapeutic activities for adventure-seeking individuals like me. Strolling around places highlighted by nature gives a sense of prosperity and contentment. This kind of feeling overwhelmed me when Pao and I visited Kowloon Park, in Tsim Sha Tsui, in Hong Kong.

Kowloon Park is awesome and is definitely a place to see if ever you get around Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong. Not only that, the park has free admission. The park is beautifully maintained with all the nice flowers, a beautiful landscape, a wide variety of animals, and a soothing and relaxing atmosphere that encourages all park visitors to meditate and relax. Hence, “The best things in life are freeee!”

Kowloon Park is also home to an aviary which houses different kinds of parrots and cockatoos.

Flamingo! There are two species of flamingos available in the park-- Greater Flamingo and Lesser Flamingo

Don’t you find flamingos elegant, classic, and beautiful? Kowloon Park is home to two species of Flamingos— these are the Lesser Flamingos and the Greater Flamingos. Lesser Flamingos are the smaller flamingos and their plumage is mostly pink. Greater Flamingos on the other hand, are the taller flamingos, with their plumage being mostly white.

Beautiful and well-maintained landscaping

The landscape of the Kowloon Park is also relaxing, soothing, and calming. I think it was beautifully planned so that the park visitors could take a break from the busy lifestyle of Hong Kong.

Pao and I are adventure buddies and nature lovers, that’s why we found great appreciation in Kowloon Park. How I wish the free parks in the Philippines were as accommodating and as beautifully maintained as this one. But I’m not complaining. I’m still thankful for the natural wonders of the Philippines. And the Philippines will always feature the best natural wonders that we could ever wish for!

Getting There:
  • From Tsim Sha Tsui in Cameron Road, take a 10 minute walk going North (to Kowloon)
  • Search for the Kowloon Park (Near the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station, Red line)
  • Absolutely FREE!
