Contemporary Garden 西式花園

The Contemporary Garden is a wonderful place for the enjoyment of natural music and a peace of mind. Apart from lush greenery, there are two impressive statues erected in the garden.

Walking in the Garden, your sight naturally falls onto the centrepiece – the bronze-colored statue named “Effort” (“Esfuerzo” in Spanish) by renowned Mexican sculptor Mr. José Sacal. The sculpture, donated by Mr. Sacal himself, symbolizes man’s struggle to improve or better himself through education, reminding us of our University's commitment to nurture students through the best education.

Next to the Pavilion After the Rain in the Contemporary Garden, Dr. Sun Yat-sen bronze statue commands a central location that faces the major pedestrian walkway. It shows Dr. Sun holding a book inscribed with the “Three People’s Principles”, i.e. “Government of the people, by the people, and for the people”. The four Chinese characters “Tian Xia Wei Gong” (meaning “the world is for everyone”) on the base of the statue illustrate Dr Sun’s vision of an ideal world.

All are welcome to relish these beautiful art pieces.

Yu Kan Hing Memorial Garden & Pavilion 余近卿紀念園及紀念亭

Located on the opposite sides of the Contemporary Garden, there is the Yu Kan Hing Memorial Garden & Pavilion, which are often found calming and peaceful. Listening to birds' tweets, you may find cats lounging around the pond with you. The Memorial Garden offers a quiet corner for all to rejuvenate after an engaging fruitful day.
