On Ting Estate - Palm Garden

On Ting Estate, built in 1980, is one of the oldest public housing estates in Tuen Mun. When major renovation works were carried out in 2003, several barren planters in the estate were converted into a Palm Garden with a sitting-out area. The Palm Garden also serves as an educational ground for students of nearby schools to learn more about different species of trees.

Design Features

The Palm Garden, occupying an area of 1 500 m2, is extensively planted with over 15 species of palm trees, which include Arenga pinnata, Areca triandra, Trachycarpus fortunei, Cocoa nucifera, Wodyetia bifurcata, Livistona chinensis, Roystonea regia, Mascarena lagenicaulis and Chamaedorea geonomiformis. Among all the gardens under the Housing Authority, this is where the largest number of palm species is found. We made special efforts to retain the plants already there, add various well-matched species of palm trees and put in place a specially-designed Tai Chi area. The theme garden has now become a serene, scenic spot for the enjoyment of residents at their leisure.
