The Victoria Park is an important park to the people of Hong Kong. It is the meeting place of the annual June 4th candlelight vigil to commemorate the 1989 incident. It is also the gathering point of the annual July 1st protests for true democracy and universal suffrage in Hong Kong.

An important multi-purpose sports ground
