I'm still not sure why there were such large crowds, as the arrangements weren't much more interesting than what you might see at a county or state fair back in the United States. Flowers were arranged to look like animals, miniature lawns were decorated with babbling brooks and old-fashioned water wheels, and numerous concession stalls were hawking junk food. Victoria Park itself was also kind of unexciting compared to the critter friendly Hong Kong Park just a mile away. If you're looking for a place to get some tennis in on your trip to Hong Kong, however, there are a number of outdoor courts available.
