Despite being a truly cosmopolitan city, Hong Kong is very considerate when it comes to outdoor space. We have many choices when it comes to our urban parks. Some are dedicated to leisure walks, hard core running, bird watching and some just for the beautiful landscape. There are also many pet friendly parks for us to walk and play with our furry friends.
Is there anything better than spending the day outdoors with your bestie? Here are a few parks you can visit.
