Today’s article is about a little park called Jong Shing Park (like Fushing) and it’s located in Shin Fong.
I found this to be a delightful little park, right in the middle of an urban area.
This is a good sign
The first thing that struck me about this mini park is how clean is it. As the above shot proves, someone rakes the trash up. I was officially impressed!
Also, this park wasn’t just the same old theme – plastic play set, stone tables, etc.
The park is triangle shaped and one of the points has this cool trellis that forms a cover. This is the NW corner.
This is the area directly under the above shot. It’s open in the center but has some tables (yes, they are stone!) to the sides.
Standing in the same place, I turned around and took a shot along the West side.
The park features more trellises and the vines growing up over them provide quite a bit of shade. Like every other place there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the shade.
No English nomenclature.
But there was one of those big stone markers (which was so well hidden that I didn’t see it until driving away) and this sign. The name of the park is in the upper right corner. There is a little graphic that shows the shape of the park.
I backed up and took this perspective shot showing how this sign is virtually hidden from the street.
Looking past that sign, towards the SW corner, we find another one of those trellises with the vines growing over it. They really do make for nice entranceways.
Every park needs one of these little covered thingies.
It appears to be well used.
Turning to the left, this is an open shot of the park. One thing that I like is even though it’s small, the center section is open and you can play games there.
This housing complex is right off the S side of the park. All the residents have to do is open this gate. Very nice.
The last shot is of this interesting centerpiece at the NE point . Everything is green and well maintained. Above all it is very clean.
Jhong Shing park is apparently well used. While I was shooting, there were several people walking around the edge doing laps. I’m very happy to have discovered this gem of a mini park. I hope you enjoyed the virtual tour as much as I enjoyed bring it to you!
