Garden Nature / Park
Chater Garden, located in the Central District of Hong Kong, is a public park directly east of the Legislative Council building. It is named after Sir Paul Chater, as is the adjacent Chater Road.HistoryIn the early days of British rule in Hong Kong, the site was part of the Murray Parade Ground. Then in 1851, it was opened as a sports and recreation area and became home to the Hong Kong Cricket Club and its ground. In 1975 Chater Garden took up the space left by the club when it moved to Wong Nai Chung Gap. The garden was developed in the 1970s, and formally opened on 10 October 1978.Due to its proximity to the seat of government, the garden has been used as a location for political rallies and demonstrations by groups in Hong Kong such as Falun Gong.
Chater Garden is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Hong Kong Edition.

  • A calm place in the middle of the city. The water sounds will allow you to rest. You can sit on the benches. Almost nobody's there
  • Tiny, little garden square in the middle of downtown Central, Hong Kong. Quite a relaxing place, with some trees and green along with a fountain. Plenty of covered seating benches where it is possible to rest and have a quick bite.
  • A cool garden in the city... Refresh a day.
  • Nice place to relax accessible to all transportation
  • Established in 1978. Previously , the site was Hong Kong Cricket Club since 1851
