The Tai Po Waterfront Park is a 22 hectare city park situated on the northern shore of the Tolo Harbour. It opened to the public in 1997 and affords residents of Tai Po with well maintained and managed leisure and recreation space with good facilities and rewarding views of the harbour.
Quite a few buses call upon the park including those from the Tai Po Market MTR Station. You can also walk there from the station in 20-25 minutes. This is also a major stop on the very popular Tai Wan to Tai Mei Tuk bike trail.
The Waterfront Park has quite a lot to offer. There is expected grassy areas, children's playground areas, elderly fitness equipment, pebble walking trails, kite flying area, model boat pool, an insect house, sculpture installations, public toilets, bike rentals and parking areas and loads of promenade space directly on the sea.
A real highlight to visiting the Waterfront Park is the spiral-shaped lookout tower that is just over 32 metres in heigth, affording visitors really nice panoramic views of the harbour, nearby industrial park, the mountainous areas beyond Tai Po as well as the rest of the park, surrounding the lookout tower.
Overall, it is a really nice park and waterfront in the Tai Po area and a great stopping point to rest for those cycling through Tai Po.
