Tuen Mun ParkTuen Mun Park, formerly called Tuen Mun Town Park, is a 12.5-hectare (31 acres) public park in Tuen Mun District's town centre. It is dubbed as the largest park in the New Territories, Hong Kong.

It is easilly accessible via MTR and Light Rail and sits near other major Tuen Mun destinations including Tuen Mun Town Plaza, Tuen Mun Public Library and Tuen Mun Town Hall.

The park was built on reclaimed land in several phases and was completed in 1991. It offers a lush and beautifully-landscaped respite to both locals and tourists. It is home to over 2,000 different tree varieties and more than 100,000 ornamental plants, beautifully incorporated into the landscaping.

Another popular attraction in the park is the Reptile House, a facility exhibiting various reptilian species which opened in 1999. It is the first of its kind attraction managed by the Leisure and Cultural Service Department. Fifty-nine live exhibits from 29 reptilian species are currently dispayed in the facility, including Carpet Python, Frill-necked Lizard, Boa Constrictor, Veiled Chameleon, Western Painted Turtle, Tokay Geoko, Leopard Gecko, Star Tortoise, Spurred Tortoise, Iguana, Thai Water Dragon, Ball Python and Blue-tongued Skink. Apart from the live exhibits, there are also graphic displays about the animals and 7 reptile models.
