Stage II of Kwun Tong’s new waterfront promenade opened yesterday, in all its music-playing, mist-expelling glory.
The new stretch – which will link up with Kwun Tong Promenade Stage I, extending the boardwalk to nearly a kilometre – features a landscaped area with interactive lighting, music and mist features, just in case you needed some extra stimulation while gazing at one of the world’s best skylines.
“During nighttime the lighting flashes and changes along with music, interacting with mists of water droplets emitted from the ground and kaleidoscopic beams from uplights along the whole boardwalk, creating a colourful and surreal effect,” a government press release gushes.
Wow. Sounds intense.
Art installations representing mechanical cranes and recycled paper bundles has also been created to commemorate the area’s history as a cargo handling area and a paper recycling hub.
And there is, of course, a sensory garden, a viewing platform and an elderly fitness corner. There’s also some actual grass!
This weird and wonderful outside space can now be pottered around from 178 Hoi Bun Road, Kwun Tong.
