Hoi Sham Park - An auspicious place in To Kwa Wan, Hong Kong

Hoi Sham Park in To Kwa WanHoi Sham Park is a Hong Kong attraction located in the To Kwa Wan area. The park used to be an Island called Hoi Sham Island or To Kwa Wan Island, and is known for the jagged rocks surrounding the area including the Hoi Sham Rock and Fishtail Rock. The rocks face Lei Yu Mun and are said to bear excellent feng-shui.

A Hoi Sham Temple was originally located on the island but its was relocated during reclamation of the bay of To Kwa Wan in the 1960s.

The reclamation project connected the islandto the urban To Kwa Wan area and was converted into Hoi Sham Park in 1972 with the Fishtail Rock preserved. The temple has been relocated to Pak Kung Street in the area.

Through a grant from the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the Hoi Sham Park was developed to provide a sitting-out area for the public.
