Kowloon Walled City Park is located at the then Kowloon Walled City, a walled city at the Hong Kong Colonial period situated in nowadays Kowloon City District. Kowloon Walled City was moved under two separate periods in 1987 and 1989 respectively, demolished at the same time, and rebuilt until August 1995. After that the Hong Kong British Government rebuilt the original place into a park, and was to be named as “Kowloon Sheng Chai Park” as planned. However, it was later found from cultural relics that “Kowloon Sheng Chai” is original named as “Kowloon Chai Sheng”. Thus the park adopts the ancient name as “Kowloon Chai Sheng Park”. The entire park covers 31,000 square metres, divided into 8 distinctive areas.

Park Offices, Yamen (Almshouse)

If visitors get off at Tung Tau Tsuen Road, they can enter through the North Gate. If they get off at the Holy Family Canossian School or go there by MTR, they may enter through the South Gate facing Carpenter Road. South Gate is the main entrance of the Park, where the craved granite plaques with inscription could be seen immediately once entering through the South Gate. Visitors entering through the North Gate can walk along Lung Tsun Road inside the Park to go around to the granite plaques. Behind the granite plaques is the location of the then “Yamen” or the “Almshouse”. Yamen was originally the office of Kowloon Assistant Military Inspectorate. Since the retreat of the Qing Dynasty officials in 1899, Yamen had been rented by different church organizations for the purpose of elderly homes, orphanage and widow houses, schools and clinics etc. After the government announced the demolition of the Kowloon Walled City in 1987, Yamen was kept and fully restored, becoming an important historical monument.


Short comments: The main places in the park are accessible by wheelchairs, and there are also accessible toilets. However, due to the uneven terrain, there are many slopes in the park. Fortunately, the main scenic spots and exhibition areas are connected by ramps or sloping plates, but some passages paved with cobblestones should be noted, which will be slippery on rainy days.

A City of Thousand Faces

The exhibition of “A City of Thousand Faces” was officially opened for public use on 19 April 2009. It consists of one Outdoor Display Area and six Exhibition Rooms inside the Former Yamen. It seeks to re-create the old days of the Kowloon Walled City through models, images and sound effects etc.

Garden of Chinese Zodiac

Of the over 10 scenery spots in the Park, Garden of Chinese Zodiac is one of the eight most famous scenes. There are white-stone sculptures of the 12 Chinese zodiacs arranged according to the tian gan (heavenly stems) and di zhi (earthly branches) of Chinese geomancy. Among them the big-clawed tiger sculpture is the most special, its fin-like back is modelled after the legendary Zhou Dynasty mascot, while the elegantly resting horse was designed after the stone horses at the Ming Dynasty Tombs northwest of Beijing. Besides, visitors can tour the park through the cloister - the circled corridors and enjoy the scene of the pond.

Stone Houses Family Garden

Stone Houses Family Garden is located opposite to the Old Hau Wong Temple on Junction Road. It is a Grade III Historical Building with Chinese-style village house design. In 2010, under the revitalization plan of the Development Bureau, it was handed over to a non-profit organization for restoration, revitalized into Stone Houses Family Garden, and opened on 9 October 2015.


When arriving at the entrance of Stone Houses Family Garden, you will see an outdoor cafe with a nostalgic cold-drink bar as the theme. Operated as a social enterprise, the cafe mainly serves coffee and classic nostalgic meals. The Garden has also Cultural Relic Discovery Centre, Amphitheater, Labyrinth, exhibitions, etc., with guided tours provided.
