Dr. Sun Yat Sen Park

The Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park is a new open park located on the waterfront near the Western Harbour Crossing.  Unlike most "parks" in Hong Kong it does offer a lawn, with grass you are allowed to walk on, and comes with a nice statue of Sun Yat-sen in the center.

A reflecting pool beside the sea is also a nice place to look out over the western side of the harbour and I'm sure would be a great place to watch the New year fireworks.

As well as the grassed areas there are hard football and basketball courts, and a children's playground.  Don't be tempted to use the toilet there though which is in a very sad state given how new it is.

One rather strange item is a quite nice large relief sculpture called "The Four Bandidts", which despite the name is nothing to do with desperadoes in the Old West but everything to do with Dr Sun and his companions when they were plotting the overthrow of the Chinese Government!

The park is in walking distance if you are staying in the HK Island Pacific hotel but otherwise you'll want to take a taxi to reach the park.

Probably most worth a visit if you have small kids who are fed up with being cooped up and would like a place to run around for an hour and play in the playground.
