Kwun Tong Promenade - Short but Spectacular Waterfront Boardwalk in Eastern Kowloon, Hong Kong

Kwun Tong PromenadeKwun Tong Promenade is a public park in Kwun Tong, an industrial district in the eastern part of the Kowloon Peninsula. The 7,340 square metre promenade sits on a portion of waterfront which was formerly occupied by the Kwun Tong Public Cargo Working Area (PCWA).

The park's main attractions include a special tower landmark, which resembles the piles of compressed recycled paper that used to be stacked at the PCWA compound. At night, the tower takes on a surreal form when it gets illuminated by specially designed lights that flashes and changes along with music. Mists emitted from the ground interact with the ligts creating a kaleidoscopic effect.

Aside from the tower landmark, other attractions include a 200-metre seaside boardwalk which offers spectacular harbor views, performance area, spectator stand which can seat 200 people, multi-purpose plaza, childrens' play area and a grassy lawn. Kwun Tong Promenade is perfect for tourists looking for a less crowded venue for viewing Hong Kong's iconic skyline.
