Hong Kong Pools – The Best Places to Cool Off in the Heat

As temperatures heat up in Hong Kong, many find themselves turning to swimming to cool off. Not only is it an effective form of exercise but swimming also reduces stress levels and increases energy levels – so many more people than ever are opting to spend their summer days at Hk pools!

Hong Kong’s public swimming pools are administered by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), consisting of 44 pools located across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories. There are also multiple water parks including Ocean Park’s Water Park which is sure to please even picky kids!

Victoria Park Swimming Pool, established in 2015, is the latest addition to hk pools family. Boasting outdoor leisure pool with waterfalls and rocks, training/teaching pool with four waterslides boasting some of the longest slides in town as well as children’s pool featuring fountains and games to keep little ones amused, Victoria Park Swimming Pool is sure to please all members of its patronage!

Ma On Shan Swimming Pool is another highly-recommended public pool for families, located near Tolo Harbour and boasting an expansive main pool and spectator stands that seat 1,200. In addition, this complex houses training and teaching pools and a toddler-specific pool with quirky water installations such as mushroom-shaped fountains.

If you’re seeking something luxurious, visit Rosewood Hong Kong Hotel’s Asaya Pool for breathtaking city views and relaxing waterslides. Although this pool is exclusive to hotel guests, it is certainly worth paying a visit if you’re feeling restless; whether lounging poolside with a drink in hand or diving into the waters for laps – it provides the ideal retreat from city life!

Recent video footage posted online depicted dozens of monkeys swimming at a private club pool in Hong Kong, forcing the facility to close for cleaning. While it remains unknown why so many were there at once, footage captures some of them swimming together and socializing among themselves – as captured by local resident who posted their footage online Monday morning.
