Spider-Man: The Dragon's Challenge - Nicholas Hammond (1979) - Victoria Park, Causeway Bay

There are a couple of views concerning Victoria Park, one from on high that is really focusing on the typhoon shelter but captures the edge of the park in frame, and a close up view as the film's protagonists go for a morning wander to watch all the oldies doing their tai chi.

The top picture below shows the aforementioned aerial view of the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter with a very grassy looking Victoria Park at the top of the screen.

Just to prove that the park was once a nice grass covered bit of open space, here are some pictures of the actual a rarer thing in Hong Kong than Spiderman himself - most of the Park has subsequently been replaced by astro-turfed pitches and painted concrete. The same goes for most other parks all over the territory - finding real grass is difficult indeed.
