An industrial park is a developed township of industries that are plotted or constructed for the purpose establishing industries, manufacturing activities and their related services. An industrial park is an area zoned and planned for the purpose of industrial development. In Hong Kong, industrial parks are usually known as industrial estates. In the United Kingdom small industrial parks containing multiple units all of the same style are known as trading estates. A more "lightweight" version is the business park or office park, which has offices and light industry, rather than heavy industry.
