Chuk Yuen Estate (Chinese: 竹園邨) is a public housing estate in Kowloon, Hong Kong, located north of Wong Tai Sin[1] and underneath Lion Rock. Its site was formerly the Chuk Yuen Resettlement Area.[2][3]

It is divided into Chuk Yuen (North) Estate (Chinese: 竹園(北)邨) and Chuk Yuen (South) Estate (竹園(南)邨). The two estates have eight blocks each,[4][5] and were all built in the 1980s. In 1999, some of the flats were sold to tenants through the Tenants Purchase Scheme Phase 2.[6]

At the centre of these buildings is a shopping mall, hosting a McDonald's, 7-eleven, OK, three bakeries, a street market, Watsons, a dim sum restaurant, two supermarkets and a sports centre. Beside the mall are two parks: one with a fish pond and a waterfall and the other with basketball courts and football fields.

Pang Ching Court (鵬程苑) and Ying Fuk Court (盈福苑) fall under the Home Ownership Scheme courts near Chuk Yuen Estate, completed in 1991 and 2001 respectively. They each have one block.
