Victoria Park is a public park in Hong Kong, named after Queen Victoria. It is located in Causeway Bay, in the north of Hong Kong Island, between Causeway Bay and Tin Hau MTR stations. It is part of the Eastern District, along the border with Wan Chai District. Victoria Harbour is in the north of the park, while Hong Kong Central Library locates in the south. In the early 2000s the park underwent a major revamp.
In recent years, there has been a tradition for thousands of Indonesian domestic workers to congregate in and around the western end of Victoria Park every Sunday (their usual rest day of the week). There is also a parallel, older tradition for Filipina domestic servants to congregate in Statue Square in Central, Hong Kong.
There is a sitting statue of Queen Victoria, at the main entrance of the park. This statue was founded in Pimlico, London and was originally located on Statue Square. This statue, together with other ones from the square, were displaced to Japan to be melted by the occupying Japanese during World War II. After the war the statues were brought back to Hong Kong, and Queen Victoria's statue was restored in 1952 and placed in Victoria Park.
The park includes various sports facilities, swimming pool, central lawn and children areas. The tennis central court in the park is often used to host international tennis tournaments. There are several pools of water located in the garden area that are often used by the locals for remote-controlled toy boats.
The transport there is very convenient as it is just next to the busy district Causeway Bay. Visitors can reach there by MTR, getting off at either Causeway Bay MTR station or Tin Hau station. Dozens of bus routes and the trams can reach there as well.
