Kowloon Walled City Park - Review
This park stands as a testament to change. Originally a Chinese garrison site, it saw some rough years in the early twentieth century as a triad center famous for its gangs, brothel’s and drug dens. It came to be known as a City Of Darkness, when it truth it was barely larger than a few apartment blocks. The government began rehousing this densely over-populated area in the 1990’s. The shoddy high rises were torn down and the beautiful Chinese-style park opened on April 1994. Today, the Park preserves traces of the walled city, most notably its Yamen, the imperial government administrative building. The park also offers visitors a chance to appreciate the beauty of nature in a place where the darker side of human nature once flourished.

Kowloon Walled City Park, Hong Kong Reviews
A hidden sanctuary within the city. Peaceful and relaxing place. Good for meditation,reflection and rest. There is also a part where kids can play. Bench are everywhere and can.sit and eat or relax. Clean and safe.
It has interactive videos in the park and things with descriptions explaining it's history. Fun for history and a good walk.
A good place to run for fitness... Kids can also play the other side of the park. Its a nice place to take photo.
Rich in history, this park is a great way to spend an afternoon learning and taking in the scenery!
Nice place to hang out. One of the few places in Hong Kong that isn't next to a tall building. This park isn't as big as one might expect. Also, if you forget to bring food and drinks, there are vending machines outside and a single vendor inside selling them.
