One of the quite interesting water fountains in Statue Square, it has been there since the early 1960's and is much photographed.
Interestingly I have seen comments on Tripadvisor written by Hong Kong residents who think it is not worth your time!

There is a bit of interesting history for Statue Square but this location is a far cry from its original intention and there is only one stature remaining on display, the most important, that of Queen Victoria has long been moved to Victoria Park in the North Point/Causeway Bay area of Hong Kong Island.
This location does serve a good purpose though and is highly utilized by the local maids and helpers who gather here during their free time on weekends to social and meet up with their friends. There are also some Christmas decorations that go up in this area during the holiday season. Otherwise, there is very little to do/see here other than to stop and rest your feet during visits to the very crowded areas of Hong Kong island.
Because here is very little tourism value in Statue Square, you can give this location a pass when planning your time in Hong Kong and the Central district, concentrating your time on more important and interesting locations.
In my view this is complete and utter nonsense, it is a must visit place, all that colonial history, the Feng Shui and such... I always try and visit Statue Square on my private walking tours of Hong Kong!!
