Tai Po Waterfront Park

Overview:

Tai Po Waterfront Park is in Tai Po in the New Territories of Hong Kong. It is located along Tolo Harbour, and its western end is at the northern part of the mouth of the Lam Tsuen River. It occupies an area of 22 hectares, and is the largest park managed by Leisure and Cultural Services Department. Every year, the Tai Po Dragon Boat Race is held in the sea off the park. The park has a wide range of public facilities including rest gardens, sitting-out areas, an insect house, a 1.2 km promenade along the harbour front, a jogging trail with fitness stations and a 600-seat amphitheatre.

The lookout tower is 32.4 metres high; it gives visitors a panorama view over Tolo Harbour, the Tai Po Industrial Estate and the rugged countryside stretching back to the boundary with mainland China. The plaques of the lookout tower depict the history of Tai Po, including the struggle with British army when they originally entered the New Territories, the heroic resistance against Japanese army during the Occupation and prosperity after World War II.
