Hong Kong: Park & Aviary

Hong Kong Park is a lush public oasis next to Cotton Tree Drive in the Central District of Hong Kong Island. It was built in 1991 and features several attractions and ammenities (all connected by beautifully landscaped paths, with signs in English)...
lily ponds, fountains, rest benches, playgrounds, the Greenhouse, the Flagstaff House Museum of Teaware, the Tai Chi Gardens, the Conservatory (housing gorgeous orchids), and the Aviary, where one will find 80 species of Asian birds flying free in a huge and architecturally impressive tropical jungle enclosure. The last photo below is the Bali Starling, but you will no doubt be more interested in the rainbow colored parrots, which wouldn't settle down near enough to the camera during my visit.
