Tai Po Waterfront Park - A sprawling public park along Tolo Harbour

Tai Po Waterfront Park is located along Tolo Harbour in Tai Po in the New Territories of Hong Kong. The park's western end is at the northern part of the mouth of the Lam Tsuen River. At 22 hectares, Tai Po Waterfront Park is the largest park managed by Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

The park facilities include landscaped gardens, sitting areas, an insect house, a 1.2 km promenade along the harbour front, a jogging trail with fitness stations and a 600-seat amphitheater.

Another attraction at the park is the 32.4m high spiral lookout tower which gives visitors a panoramic view of Tolo Harbour, the Tai Po Industrial Estate and the rugged countryside stretching back to the boundary with mainland China.

There are plaques on the lookout tower which commemorate the historical significance 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.

The Tai Po Waterfront Park is also the venue of the annual Tai Po Dragon Boat Race.
