Urban Council Centenary Garden - A Quaint Public Park in Kowloon, Hong Kong

Urban Council Centenary GardenThe Urban Council Centenary Garden is a public park in Tsim Sha Tsui East, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was named in honour of the centennial of the establishment of the Urban Council.

The park is divided into two sections, one in the west near Chatham Road South and another in the east near Mody Road, connected by a pavement corridor between Hilton Towers and Peninsula Centre. The park is dotted with trees and seating areas.

The park's west side features a big fountain decorated by a six-pillar colonnade salvaged from the former Kowloon Station in Tsim Sha Tsui. Aside from the iconic Clock Tower which was preserved in its original location and a bell kept at East Rail depot at Ho Tung Lau, the pillars are the only remaining remnants of the Kowloon-Canton Railway's Kowloon Station which originally stood at the present site of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The eastern section features another fountain and more open spaces that can accommodate large outdoor activities such as fairs.
