The park's characters and fountains and water spouts will greet you at the square.
You will find the ticket counters and all ground transportation, bus interchanges and MTR station here.
The bus stop for Bus 629 which brings you to Central will be to the left as you exit the park.
There are convenient Car Park facilities also if you are arriving by private car.
Also at Ocean Square prior to entering the park, you will go through a quick security check. Please note that outside food and
drink are not permitted, other than baby food. Although, a water bottle or a bag of chips here and there will not raise the alarm bells, please
