Hong Kong Pools

Swimming is more than a fun form of exercise; it also reduces stress and enhances mental wellbeing, increasing energy levels while working the entire body and mind simultaneously. Given this fact, no wonder so many are making use of Hong Kong’s spectacular pools!

Though most NYC public pools have reopened following coronavirus restrictions, some remain closed for cleaning and regular maintenance. To learn more about which ones have yet to reopen as well as their opening hours please visit NYC Pools webpage.

No matter your pool needs – from luxurious lounging to intensive workouts – Hong Kong offers something suitable. From the Peninsula Hotel’s breathtaking Roman-inspired pool to Rosewood’s Asaya Pool and more opulent resorts’ unique offerings that promise an unforgettable vacation experience, Hong Kong boasts unforgettable swimming pools.

For those seeking a leisurely swim, Hong Kong boasts plenty of indoor pools for relaxing dips. One such indoor pool at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University features over 1,200 swimmer capacity; located inside its Sports Centre this pool makes a great place to unwind and cool off.

Ma On Shan Swimming Pool provides an exciting sea view and four water slides – including one that stands 9 metres tall! Plus there’s training and teaching pools as well as round stepping and toddler pools! For some extra adventure check out this expansive swimming pool which also offers round stepping and toddler pools!

Kowloon Park Swimming Pool is another top swimming destination, established as part of Kowloon Park’s 1989 redevelopment and expansion project, this pool provides breathtaking 150-degree sea views while being surrounded by lush vegetation for ultimate relaxation while swimming or simply lounging around in it.

Kowloon Park pool hosts various sporting activities and hosts the World Swimming Championships each year.

Pool-related accidents have increased over time, with one particularly deadly pool dive tragedy taking place in 2007. Following this tragic event, new safety measures were put into effect including having lifeguards present 24/7 in Hong Kong.

The LKF union has requested that authorities grant schools and training centres access to swimming pools even when lifeguards are unavailable; on condition that these organisations provide sufficient safeguards to ensure at least one qualified individual remains on-site during operation hours. They have also asked that salaries for seasonal lifeguards are increased while two-year contract hires be made more readily available so staff shortages can be addressed more effectively; so far 20 public pools and over 500 licensed private pools have experienced staff shortages this summer, which will likely adversely impact summer swimming classes offered.
