Taipa has long been considered a more family-friendly area with its lush green surroundings and relaxed atmosphere. Apart from being a popular choice of residence for expats, its proximity to cultural and heritage sites, and a teeming selection of restaurants to explore, Taipa boasts two extraordinary garden-park-playgrounds. These multifunctional spaces are more than just a place to sit, stroll or play. They are perfect for children and adults alike.
Flower City Garden
The strategic location of Flower City Garden makes it a popular destination. Located across the street from the ParknShop supermarket, it is perfectly nestled between Taipa’s high-rise buildings and commercial shops. The garden is a modern interpretation of the classical Chinese garden featuring beautiful Lotus ponds with aquatic creatures, winding bridges and pavilions. There is a children’s playground, a skating and scooter area and a small exhibition area featuring aquatic animals. The educational area features bones, charts and scientific facts in a cool laid-back environment that everyone can enjoy. Admission is free.
