Features

Some of Kong Kong’s public parks are packed with facilities. Kowloon Park is an example. It has aviaries, various types of gardens and big well-equipped facilities. The prices for what you get are unusually low. Millions of visitors come every year.

It is right smack in the middle of important Tsim Sha Tsui sites such as the Chungking Mansions, Harbour City, the Star Ferry, and the Golden Mile of Nathan Road.

Besides enjoying the free public gardens, paths and aviaries, you can book facilities for small fees and enjoy the various sporting events held there. You can take part in the many kinds of classes and training sessions sponsored by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

Tourists can use the library, see the Heritage Museum, and walk around in the outdoor areas for free. However, the use of some park facilities are limited to those who have special permission or a special sports facility card.

The site of the park was an important British military base that overlooked Victoria Harbour. They built solid colonial-style barracks that you can still see at the Heritage Museum, and they left some military equipment.

Kowloon Park was officially opened in 1970 by the British governor. In 1989, the park was redeveloped at a cost of $300 million HK by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

Transport

There are five main entrances including two on both sides of the Kowloon Masjid and one on Austin Road.
