美麗公園 a fair park

2014.1.12 | 佐治五世公園 king george v memorial park, hong kong

通常公園因為承載的綠意而令人暢快愜意。但位於香港東邊街和醫院道交界的佐治五世公園,本身就是美。

經歷時間風雨歷練的大麻石牆,奶白矮圍欄連綿圓洞,園內的元老大樹,交織的盤根牆畫以及綠色光影。

公園建於1936年,超過70年歷史。不待晨曦和夕陽,本身經已滲發微黃的光譜。

usually it is the green space that makes a park. but the king george v memorial park on the hong kong island itself is a beauty.

the granite stone walls are its signature. they were built because the park is on a steep road. the park was built in 1936. the same year king george v died. thus the colonial government named it after the king. many trees have been good company of the park through the age. they are towering and providing the best shades to all park-goers as well as passengers along eastern street and hospital road. some of them are chinese banyans that weave the most intricate nature artwork – tree wall – here. and then the concrete railings. the round windows are not only lovely pattern, they also play magic with the air and light around.
