So relaxing to strol on a warm sunny winter afternoon in this green area while thousands of shoppers are busy picking their favourite commodities in the malls nearby.

Looking the map, it seems very big but actually it is not as big as our expectation. However the park in the middle of the town is so nice but seems lack of maintenance compared to the park in the main HK island.

You can already see 2016 Chinese New Year displays at Sha Tin Park. Year of the Monkey themed decorations are located in the open grass, fountain and pool area in front of the Town Hall building. They include small lights which will make them interesting to see after dark as well.

If you enjoy sculptures, there is an interesting City Art Square that occupies the space around the City Hall building, between Sha Tin Park and the New Town Plaza shopping mall. Here there is a collection of 16 large-scale works of contemporary design, put up in 2008 as part of a city beautification project held in conjunction with the Beijing Olympics.

I quite enjoy the walled Garden, which you enter through a traditional Chinese Moon Gate doorway. This is a peaceful area to sit and enjoy a sandwich lunch or coffee from nearby New Town Plaza. The North Garden and Artists Corner are also surprisingly nice areas, where you can find peace and quiet at times (not busy weekends). Ponds have fish and turtles, which are neat for the kids.

Plenty of green space, children's playground area, promenade to walk near the canal and lots of landscaped flowerbeds and plant life at the Sha Tin Park, which is probably the nicest public park we have in the New Territories of Hong Kong.

Note: The park is open open from 6.30am to 23.00pm and is easily accessible by public buses passing through Sha Tin or just a few minutes walk from the Sha Tin MTR.

Lots to see and do - water features, waterfalls, fountains, sculpture, interesting plants and rockery, pagodas and a riverside walk. The park is also divided into various areas with different planting schemes. Walk from Sha Tin centre also lined with street art.

We stayed at the Royal Park Hotel and the park was just a less than 5 minute walk from our hotel. We visited a couple of times during our stay at night and also during the day. Lots of locals in the park doing daily exercises and dancing. Very lovely park to enjoy the day in. Next time will spend more time here
