Check out Kowloon Park. This is one nice park. Well maintained, pretty clean, complete with a community center and aviary area. I didn’t go to where the birds were, I have a track record for birds liking to poop on me. Knock on wood, I’ve been bird poop free in Hong Kong. Like many parks, I hear that it gets kind of seedy at night, where people score drugs and whatever else people do in parks at night.
I grew up living near a regional park, near a dam on the Mississippi. I spent a handful of time there, either on foot or bike, or *GASP* Rollerblades. I am not sure if I heard of anything explicitly evil happening in that park after dark, but I’m sure there was. I really didn’t spend time there at night, I was too scared. Plus I’m pretty sure I wasn’t allowed to, and I’m a rule follower, most of the time.
I spend more time than I like to admit looking out for my safety. I’m under 5 feet tall and I’m not one of those people who is small but intimidating. I don’t drive a giant truck or pump iron at the gym. My neck is normal sized and I don’t have rings on all my fingers. But unlike those types of people (I’m stereotyping), I don’t wear sparkles on my shirts or jeans, because I believe that has the exact opposite effect of what they are trying to achieve.
So that said, I don’t spend much time in parks after dark. But this park was pretty nice in the light.
