Barbara Park moved from her home on the Peak where she lived for thirty-five years to a villa in Clearwater Bay last summer. Sadly, the main reason for the move is that this Peak home is now slated for demolition.
Her new home environment has a completely different microclimate, and she's been getting to grips with a long-neglected garden. Most of her collections (well known to many of our members) have fitted into the new house, and she welcomes us to see them on the 24 October.
Barbara Park is an Australian businesswoman who has lived in Hong Kong for fifty years, and is a Life Member of the HKU Museum Society.
She runs a business known as Plant-a-Park, designing and supplying man-made planting systems to commercial customers such as hotels, shopping malls, and casinos, from premises at 46 Peel Street, Central….look out for the elephant above the door.
She is a keen gardener, and has moved a year ago from Lugard Road, at the Peak, (with a totally shaded garden) to Clearwater Bay, and with a garden bathed in sunshine.
Her interests are Chinese porcelain, Asian handcrafts, especially puppets, food and wine, interior design and, of course, gardening. Members who are musically inclined are welcome to play on the 120-year-old Steinway.
