Nothing special in this park. One waterfall, nice rock formations and well maintained plants but both Kowloon park and Nan Lian garden are way better. Also not so easy to reach, closest mtr around 1km away.

A wonderful, peaceful park with lovely walks and fascinating history. Hard to believe that 100,000 people lived in such a small area. Interesting history and insight into what life would have been like living in the walled city. KWCP was easy to find, we got off at Lok Fu MTR then followed the signs to the entrance, about a 10...

Didn't have much time to look round Hong Kong so can't compare this park with others but I think it is worth visiting. It's not only a lovely place to wander round - peace and quiet after the frenzy of Kowloon shopping streets - but it's also got an interesting history which is explained in a small display in one...

Beautifull green senery in the middle of the city! If you are walking in Kowloon go there! Park is not so big so will take you around 15 minutes.. Also nice for kids as they have a big bird cage!

If you ever have chance to visit Hong Kong, count Kowloon Walled Park City in the list of must-visit places. Kowloon Walled City Park is part of Hong Kong's history in which you can see a real imperial palace inside the modern city. If you have ever watched Chinese historical movie, you would realize that see Kowloon Walled Park City... More

It would be good to look up about this walled park when it was a city before you go. The park is very pretty and relaxing. Not busy when we went this April.

Some people have heard of the old Squatter city demolished 20 yrs ago. It's worth a look at the book 'City of Darkness' for jaw dropping images and brief insights into the lives of those who lived there. This park is built on the demolished land and is breath-taking in it's beauty and diversity. Walk along old and historic tree... More

Nothing remains of the old infamous walled city (couldn't they preserve a part of this unique building instead of destroying it? Make it into a museum or something?) instead there is a beautiful park in the centre of Kowloon City, never overcrowded and at walking distance from restaurants and shops. This used to be the site of the infamous walled... More

I had a very pleasant walk around here with a friend, and learned about the history of the walled city which was crazy - a lawless area in Hong Kong until 1987. The park is very beautiful and you can sit and play chess.
