hoi sham park 海心公園

2013.7.7 | 土瓜灣落山道 lok shan road, to kwa wan
我是個市區人,但愛在繁忙雜亂人工林中找尋閒適自然。所以一有空,不會鑽商場,而是往公園走。
urban parks are my sanctuary. when i have some leisure time, want to go out and stretch my legs, they are my destination. commercial-soaked consumption-oriented shopping malls simply can’t beat them, even though the full-blown air-conditioning won’t lure me in the big hot summer.
只要你將心情放鬆,願意打開五官,我保證你的公園行一定有收穫:植物和小鳥一定不缺。不難發現,公園內的人,就算不是心情愉快,最少也是平逸的。
parks are so rewarding. the nature in the middle of the concrete jungle is the biggest draw. the atmosphere is the bonus. if you haven’t realized before, take a moment in a park, take a look at people around you. they may not be the happiest people in town, but at least you can hardly find a grumpy or nervous face. park-goers are usually relaxed and at ease.


前個星期,懷著探索心情,走去一個從未去過的公園 – 海心公園。
海心公園很有歷史。不純指年份,而是他對九龍舊區居民的情分。
公園不大,特色不少。因為園內巨大的造型石頭,空氣中彌漫奇情。因為他的位置,由海心轉為海濱,新近園外還豎立一棟「豪宅」,好不滄海桑田。海心亭,好不懷舊的建築,載滿釣魚郎的技術、志趣相投和較競,其實也蠻老式的情懷。但包圍在外,一片不斷變幻的海港和香港地。
the week before, i was having the exploring mood and took a special trip to a park haven’t been to before – hoi sham park.
it is not big. but there are many points of interest. first thing is the rocks. secondly, the setting and the background of the park. this park has a long history and experienced many changes in the location and the look of the park. the contrast of old and new. the neighbourhood root face to face challenged by city development. if you don’t know this park either, have some basic understanding of the park (research online) and go there, you probably will enjoy it with some extra feeling and reflection. if you are an old friend of this park, you certainly should have enjoy it more. like this surreal yet so real exceptional harbour view at the hoi sham pavilion.
