After reading about this park I wanted to visit. It was not easy to find and with the help of locals we got there. Very serene. After the long walk getting there, enjoyed sitting down, relaxing and absorbing the peaceful atmosphere. Very pretty.

The Kowloon Walled City Park is a little off the normal tourist trail in Hong Kong, but well-worth the taxi ride or 20 minute walk from Lok Fu MTR station. The site was used for military purposes and to house magistrates and the poor, before it became the illegal and ungoverned home to between 30,000 and 50,000 people until the... More

Amazing what once was a crime ridden, vice filled. wall to wall concrete ghetto is now transformed into pretty gardens and lakes with flowing streams and photogenic vistas. DIRECTIONS: Walk downTung Tau Tsuen Rd for about 20 minutes or take metro to next station then walk 10 minutes along Junction Rd to Tung Tau Tsuen Rd. MTR Lok Fu station,... More

We still had a day to wile away in Hong Kong so we visited the Kowloon Walled City. It's very accessible by MTR. We made the mistake of going further inside the part when, just by the traffic light, you need only to turn left and you will already be inside the Kowloon Walled City. It's a nice place for...

The park standing where the walled city was is a beautiful, well maintained Chinese garden. Unfortunately there is little history of the walled city period, particularly when it developed its notorious image. Although the park is pretty I felt a little disappointed there wasn't more than a few photographs from around 1910 of how the place used to be. If... More

The Walled City transformed into an urban enclave, however, it still retains its basic layout. We were fascinated upon arriving and passing through the stone wall entrances. Today, visitors will find a tranquil garden with rocks, trees and ponds. Inside the Park, a small museum exhibits pictures about people's life within the space of one city block or through those...

This was a fascinating visit and not at all what we expected. We wandered around and stumbled onto the area where there are video presentations about life in the Walled City before it was demolished. It is very quiet, almost sacred and a welcome respite from bustling Hong Kong.

Definitely a recommendation for tourists. Hidden off the beaten track it's very secluded and nice to visit away from the hustle and bustle. Though you may bump into some budding Pokemon trainers.

A glimpse of architectural history of the formerly notorious over-densely populated Kowloon and its transformation to a well-designed open green public space. Interesting for history & architecture buff.
