|After days of chilly overcast weather, some sun!|
Near where I work in Taipo in the New Territories is a place called Tai Po Waterfront Park. On one side of it features a spiral lookout point, an insect house, bowling green and model boat pool and other gardens.

The path is lined with young banyan trees, though probably not enough room was left between them to grow much bigger than they are now. There are also "pavillions", concrete structures to shield people from the natural elements. Partway through my walk I came across a tall sculpture of some sort surrounded by colourful plants and kumquat trees to mark Chinese New Year. Next to it was a section of yellow-covered stadium seating that didn't seem to have any obvious purpose.

It's great to see a park here, but must it be so heavily programmed? Why not have an open space and people can do what they want? Or do they really have to be instructed on how to use a park?
