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