    Tai Po Waterfront Park has a nickname "Hong Kong Furano" since she has giant floral display. Construction of this town park was completed in 1997 costing over 910 million Hong Kong dollars.

    Its Spiral Lookout Tower, built to celebrate the reunification of Hong Kong and China in 1997, is the ideal place to admire the natural beauty of Tolo Harbour.

    The Insect House in the park exhibits specimens of a wide range of insects. Good for scientists and children to have a look.

    The Park provides a wide range of facilities including a 1.2 long promenade, rest-gardens, sitting-out areas, a jogging trail with fitness stations, a cycling track and a 600-seat amphitheatre. You can also kiting on the grass, and fishing at Tolo Harbour. Absolutely a nice place for family and escape from the city!
