Last Saturday must have been my happiest day since my arrival in Hong Kong. I have been looking at horses galloping everyday because we live very near the racecourse, then we heard there is a park nearby and decided to check it out. What a gem!!!
The beautifully landscaped Penfold Park (彭福公園) is managed by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and it covers an area of over 20 acres. The park is located right in the middle of the Shatin Racecourse and it is closed on Mondays and race days.
Penfold Park was a venue for equestrian events during the 2008 Summer Olympics which was held in Beijing. The park is also a popular place for bird watching and it is nice walking among the colorfully painted horse statues.
I hope I get to go there every weekend. Happy Weekend everyone!!!
