Weekends are the right time to get the kids out of the house and away from those distracting screens. With its extensive Waterfront Promenade, pet-friendly areas, cycle hire, harbour-front restaurants and green lawns, the West Kowloon Cultural District provides everything you need for a fun day out with your children.
Located right on the harbour and readily accessible by public transport, including minibuses from Kowloon Station and buses from Austin station, the district also offers daily and hourly car parking — perfect for families with young children and pets. Our barrier-free facilities, which include bathrooms and baby care rooms, cater to the needs of families.
The Art Park is definitely the place to be: here visitors can marvel at the picture-perfect Hong Kong skyline and watch the setting sun, friends and family can catch up over a picnic or dinner at one of our many restaurants, pet owners can spend quality time with their dogs and cats, and everyone can enjoy the best local buskers — sights and sounds that are sure to pique the interest of your kids.
While West Kowloon offers a wide range of dining options, there is something special about sharing a leisurely picnic spread with the family. Before you head out, don’t forget to pack your favourite foods, tasty treats, drinks, cutlery and a picnic rug.
Afterwards play ball with the kids to burn off some energy, or go on an ecological adventure around the Art Park, home to hundreds of different plant species, including indigenous plants such as the Bauhnia and Incense Tree.
In addition to family-friendly events at our arts and cultural venues, West Kowloon also offers recreational facilities, such as rentable bikes and deck chairs and inflatable sofas. Or, simply take a walk down the Waterfront Promenade with your family, pick a spot on the harbour to sit, and admire Hong Kong’s beautiful skyline as the sun sets.
