“Outstanding riverside recreation area”

Reviewed 27 November 2016

This is a superb piece of public infrastructure that features separate walking, jogging and cycling tracks, lots of exercise areas/equipment, small gardens, toilet facilities and rest areas. It gets enormous use by the locals, and the occasional tourist. In the early morning and late afternoon it was relatively cool and breezy, but even in the later morning we found enough shade from the eastern sun from the trees and the high-rise buildings. In the full heat of the day it would no doubt be more challenging, but there are plenty of spots to rest – and the three MRT stations along the promenade are all close enough if you don’t feel like doing the full walk.

We were staying down in Sha Tin, which is a couple of kilometres further down the Shing Mun River. Although not of the standard of the promenade, there is still a perfectly serviceable riverside path that leads directly to its southern starting point. It’s a spectacular way to start the day, watching the river and harbour come to life and the many locals doing their morning exercises.

This is a lovely promenade, tucked away opposite the Sha Tin area.
Very few tourists ever explore this quiet part of Hong Kong, and a lovely stroll by this promenade (at dusk, as it's too hot during the day), provides a tranquil experience and a lovely view of the water canal and the nearby islands of the New Territories.

Cross the overhead bridge to get there. Nothing great. The promenade is concrete built all along the sea front with no trees and is too hot to walk along in the afternoon. There is a nice shadier park that I believe is created for the benefit of the residents in the surrounding area. There is a big mall as you exit from the Ma On Shan MTR station. Take the escalator to the basement and you can board bus 99 that takes you all the way to the seafood restaurants in Sai Kung which is the final stop.

Came here on a fine day with parents for a stroll. We strolled a long the promenade and enjoyed fresh air and gentle breeze . There are people cycling a long the promenade too.
Next to the promenade there is a big park with a few children's playground and a small library and a swimming pool next to the park.
