North District Park - A Beautiful Public Park in North District, Hong Kong

North District Park - Hong KongThe North District Park is a public park situated between Fan Ling and Sheung Shui  in North District, Hong Kong. It covers an area of 8.605 hectares, stretching along the East Rail and Tin Ping Estate from So Kwun Po Village in the north to Fan Ling Wai in the south.

The park was opened to the public in 1990 and was divided into two major parts: Phase I houses the artificial lake and gardens (passive facilities) while Phase II is home to sports facilities (active facilities).

The gardens are designed in the Yangzhou style of the Qing Dynasty with the artificial lake with rocky stream cascades as the central attraction. Structures in this area include a twin pavilion surrounded by scented flowers, three pavilions and a covered walkway.

On the northeastern side of the lake is an amphitheater which can be used for theatrical and cultural events. Facing the stage is a semi-circular spectator stand with a seating capacity of 400. In the north of the amphitheater is the Terraced Garden.

To the east of the lake is a Rock Garden featuring a wide variety of rocks including a Pebble Walking Trail used for a relaxing foot massage. On the southern side of the Rock Garden is a community garden open to farming enthusiasts.

A children's playground is located on the eastern side of the park, complete with multi-play equipment and special surface matting to protect the young ones from serious injuries during playtime. There is also a Fitness Corner for senior citizens and a Quali Walk Trail that encircles the park and providing visitors with picturesque scenery while doing exercise.

The park's active facilities include a soccer field, three basketball courts, two volleyball courts, a roller skating rink, pavilions, chess tables, sitting-out areas, a fitness trail and fitness equipment with safety matting.

North District Park is located at Jockey Club Rd., Sheung Shui, Hong Kong. It is open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. The active facilities at Phase II are open 24 hours a day.
