Fortress Hill, situated in the east of Tin Hau and west of North Point, is named after the old fortress ruins near Fort Street and Fortress Hill Road. British and Japanese troops erected forts in the twentieth century on Fortress Hill. The Fortress Hill Station built in 1985 got its name from its location. Since then, the public are accustomed to calling this area the Fortress Hill District.

Fortress Hill East Coast Park



Located on the coast of Fortress Hill in Hong Kong Island, East Coast Park covers an area of over 10,000 square metres. Based on the design concept of window, it incorporates window frames of different sizes into railings, outdoor fixtures and low ceilings, allowing the visitors to enjoy the scenery in a way of looking out of a window. Grassland, chairs and shading facilities are available for the public in the precinct.


There is a test space for children's balance bikes, and play slides and safety mats are also equipped on sloped seawalls. The park is also a pet-friendly venue where the public are welcome to bring their pets on a leash.


The 100-metre-long breakwater, another feature of the park, is the first one to be officially opened to the public in Victoria Harbour. The public can admire the charming coast of Hong Kong from the inland sea of Victoria Harbour. The end of breakwater is a great place to take photos as the public can have an all-dimension view of the scenery in Victoria Harbour.


At present, the Stage I of Fortress Hill East Coast Park is put into operation. If the Stage II is open, the promenade corridor will be expanded to 620 metres, and restaurants, cycling tracks, observation platform, skateparks and water play facilities will be added.

Short comments:
Tourists who come from Tin Hau Station or Tin Hau Bus Terminus in Causeway Bay can go north along the Electric Road, and turn left into Watson Road when reaching Causeway Bay Market. The entrance of Fortress Hill East Coast Park is located at the end of the road. Along the road there are multiple restaurants, but most of them have steps at their entrance, making it difficult for wheelchair users to enter.

In the large space of the East Coast Park, tourists can relax on benches and enjoy the sea breeze while admiring the view of Victoria Harbour. Be cautious on either side of the breakwater for there is no fence.


There are many garages on Watson Road, so be careful of cars. Accessible toilets are provided in the park for the convenience of visitors. It should be noted that the west exit of the park is a road exit, and visitors can go along the road to the middle of Hing Fat Street. The pedestrian way on both sides does not have a dropped kerb, so it is not recommended for wheelchair users to leave through the west exit on Hing Fat Street.


Address: Watson Road, Fortress Hill




Oi! is an exhibition and activity centre aiming to promote visual arts. Its name links the idea that Oi! sounds similar to the address in Cantonese and represents the anticipation that dreams in art can be achieved. As the former clubhouse of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, the building was initially converted into staff quarters for the Government Supplies Department and later into a storage facility for the Antiquities and Monuments Office. It was listed as a Grade II historic building in 1995 and revitalized to be an art space, which opened to the public in 2013.


Both local and overseas artists are invited to showcase their work to boost cultural exchanges between regions. Oi! hosts events and invites the public to take part in a dialogue where art becomes a part of our daily life. More than 3,000 square metres of outdoor space serves as a community leisure space and a cultural venue. Oi! is dedicated to providing an art oasis in the city.


New Art Space was opened in the late May 2022, with facilities including Oi! Lawn, Oi! Glassie, Oi! Lounge and Oi! Deck.

Short comments:

There is no steps at the entrance, and the exhibition halls in Oi! are barrier-free on the first floor. The second floor connected by stairs is not open for exhibition. There may be different exhibitions at every visit as they change from time to time. No notice is issued outside the museum about the content of the exhibitions, and sometimes visitors may be unable to understand the meaning behind abstract artworks.



Visitors can leave Fortress Hill East Coast Park from Watson Road, return to Electric Road and turn left for about 250 metres east to reach Oi!. It should be noted that the return route will pass through the intersection of Fook Yum Road, the pedestrian way on both sides of this intersection does not have a dropped kerb, and one side is fenced to prevent passers-by from crossing here. Visitors need to turn into the inner street to cross it, so it is recommended to cross the road at the crossing in front of the petrol station, and then continue to walk to the Oil Street before returning to the opposite side to reach the entrance. Extra attention should be paid that the road to Oil Street is partly narrow, with many pedestrians and vehicles.

Monday: 2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
