Kowloon Park

Standing on a small hill in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon Park, covering an area of 14 hectares, is former site of a military barracks. It was open to public in 1989 and it is the most popular park in Kowloon, where many territory-wide functions are regularly held.

The site of Kowloon Park was firstly used as an important military base as it overlooking the Harbour. The British called it as Whitfield Barracks after 1861. The base was changed to a public park after 1970.

Kowloon Park is a welcome respite from the crowds of Tsim Sha Tsui. Located above street level, the park has extensive recreation and sports facilities, including Chinese style gardens, an aviary, a sculpture exhibit, an air-conditioned game hall and an indoor heated Olymic-sized swimming pool complex.
