Ocean Park (Chinese: 海洋公園; Cantonese Yale: Hóiyèung Gūngyún) is an MTR rapid transit station in Hong Kong on the eastern section of the South Island Line, which serves Ocean Park Hong Kong. It opened on 28 December 2016[1] with the rest of the South Island Line.

It takes around 4 minutes to travel from Admiralty station to Ocean Park Station, which is 21 minutes faster than taking the Citybus route 629 from Admiralty station to Hong Kong Ocean Park.

The station is built above ground, north of Ocean Park Road, above the Ocean Park Bus Depot. A footbridge links the station with the park entrance. In total, the station features three entrances/exits.

This elevated station has two tracks and two side platforms.[2] Aedas, as part of the engineering team led by Atkins, is the architect for the station.[3] The station was completed in October 2015, but opened with the rest of the South Island Line East in end of December 2016.[4]

The station features different shades of blue glass, in wavy tile bands, as the main decoration. About 2,700 square metres (29,000 sq ft) of the concourse will be coloured blue, the pillars adorned with depictions of seals, penguins, jellyfish and dolphins and other marine life. On the ceiling is Flow, a hanging art installation created by Benson Kwun; this installation resembles a school of fish swimming through the air.[2] Ocean Park is the second MTR station serving a theme park, after Disneyland Resort.

A park-and-ride facility is adjacent to the station.
