No peace in the park

IT is sad to notice that, despite all the noise being made about a greener environment, one of the few remaining peaceful areas of Hongkong is now also being raped.

The other week my hiking partner and I had to literally jump off the MacLehose Trail in Ma On Shan Country Park to dodge a racing motorbike, complete with tracksuited rider, loud noise and blue smoky exhaust.

Is this really the Parks Authority's idea of a Country Park? R. L. BILLIET New Territories
