Ocean Park is an under-construction MTR rapid transit station in Hong Kong on the eastern section of the South Island Line, which will serve Ocean Park Hong Kong. It will be the second MTR station serving a theme park, after Disneyland Resort Station, and is scheduled to open at the end of 2016. It only takes around 4 minutes to travel from Admiralty station to here.

The station will be built above ground, north of Ocean Park Road, above the Ocean Park Bus Depot. A footbridge will be built linking the station with the park entrance. In total, the station will feature three entrances/exits. Aedas, as part of the engineering team led by Atkins, is the architect for the station.[1]

Entrances/exits[edit]

Ocean Park Station will have three entrances/exits:

  • A footbridge connection to Ocean Park

A park-and-ride facility will be built adjacent to the station, to allow motorists driving vehicles to easily interchange with the train services at the station.
