Located in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Hong Kong, Kowloon Park is a peaceful, green oasis right in the heart of this incredibly busy part of the city. It covers an area of just under 33 acres, with a varied landscape connected by pathways snaking through preened shrubs and ancient banyan trees. Kowloon Park was officially opened in 1970, and in 1989 it was redeveloped at a cost of 300 million. The park is traditionally Chinese in style, and is home to a variety of rarely-seen birds, trees, and flowers, along with a myriad of activities and attractions. Scenic spots within Kowloon Park include Maze Garden, Color Garden, Chinese Garden, Roof Gardens, Banyan Court, and Bird Lake. For the more active types, there's a huge swimming pool, a sports center, and a mini-soccer pitch, along with a number of walking trails and children's playgrounds.
