Swimming Pools in Hong Kong

In a city as densely packed as Hong Kong, it can be challenging to design a large municipal pool that doesn’t block the views of the surrounding buildings. But the designers of the Kennedy Town Swimming Pool (Jian Ni Di Cheng You Yong Chi) managed to pull it off with a spaceship-like building that opened in February along Victoria Harbour. Its roof, designed by Birdair sister company Shanghai Taiyo Kogyo Corporation and crafted of zinc to minimize glare and maintain a consistent color, is the first in China to use a translucent, insulated tensile membrane.

The pool is also the first in Hong Kong to offer a new technology called aqua-jets, which propel swimmers through the water with a powerful stream of air. The jets are powered by compressed air, so they’re safer than traditional nozzles, and the energy required to operate them is much lower. In addition to the new technology, the pools are equipped with automated systems for monitoring and adjusting water temperature and pH.

But the most remarkable feature is the pool’s design, which allows swimmers to see a view of the harbor and the Victoria Peak beyond. To achieve this, the pools are set into a cliff overlooking the sea. The design includes three pools, each with a different theme, and is intended to encourage interaction between swimmers and nature. The design is currently in the process of being approved by the government.

Public swimming pools are available throughout the city, although some are closed on certain days of the week or for annual maintenance. You should check with the Leisure and Cultural Services Department before visiting to ensure that the facilities are open. On weekdays, rates are HK$17 per adult, and HK$19 on weekends. Children and students get a discount. Many pools have lockers, but you’ll need a coin to unlock them.

Some swimming pools have changing rooms, but others are not equipped. If you’re traveling with young children, bring towels and swimsuits for them to change in. You can also bring a picnic, as many of the parks have tables and chairs that you can use. Some parks even have barbecue pits, so you can bring your own food.

Besides the usual sports activities, Hong Kong’s parks and recreational areas are full of other fun things to do. Whether you’re looking for a place to practice your photography skills, go shopping or find a great restaurant, you’ll be sure to find something to do in Hong Kong.
