Kowloon Park’s Kennedy Town Swimming Pool is one of Hong Kong’s largest public pools. Designed by Derek Walker & Associates from Britain and engineered by Buro Happold of Austria, this facility was constructed as part of Kowloon Park’s larger redevelopment and expansion efforts in 1989; today, its management lies with Leisure & Cultural Services Department.

The main pool, teaching pool and leisure pools at this pool are all heated, making it an excellent choice for families. In addition, aquatic activities such as aqua aerobics, swimming lessons and aqua basketball take place here as well as an extensive range of facilities like cafes, saunas and steam rooms that make this location truly family friendly.

One of the city’s most beloved swimming complexes, this facility provides an enjoyable swimming experience for people of all ages. Boasting three pools – main pool, two leisure pools and teaching pool as well as large water slides – as well as being open to public access, it has long been popular with students from nearby schools.

The pool features a lavish art deco design with marbled Roman columns that give it the appearance of being straight out of The Great Gatsby movie. Additionally, its tropical atmosphere and striped lounge chairs create the ideal place for relaxation – ideal for family outings!
