Choi Yuen Estate (Chinese: 彩園邨) is a public estate located near Sheung Shui Station and Landmark North in Sheung Shui Town. It is the first public housing estate in North District, which consists of 6 residential blocks built between 1981 and 1983.

The old site of Choi Yuen Estate was vegetable farms and the nearby village was called Tsoi Yuen Tsuen (Chinese: 菜園村) which meant Vegetable Farm Village in Chinese. In the 1970s, the vegetable farms were removed to construct Choi Yuen Estate, and the estate's name is similar to the village in Chinese. In 1990s, the village was demolished to build Landmark North, one of the largest shopping malls in North District.

 

彩園邨(英語:Choi Yuen Estate)是香港的一個公共屋邨,位於香港北部的上水,於1981年落成。彩蒲苑是彩園邨旁邊的居者有其屋屋苑,在1984年落成,共有四座樓宇。

彩園邨在1970年代初期,還是一大片菜園。1978年,為配合政府開發上水/粉嶺新市鎮,香港房屋委員會在上水菜園村(及後被清拆,現為上水廣場)附近動工興建彩園邨,是上水/粉嶺新市鎮內首個公共屋邨。1981年,彩園邨落成入伙,但由於當時尚未興建市鎮中心,屋邨居民的日常消費都在上水港鐵站另一方的石湖墟進行。
