					The Harbour Park
維港公園

The Harbour Park of Hong Kong will be a unique top-class sustainable park in the world, lodging on Victoria
Harbour and the surrounding land and facilities of the harbour.
The Harbour Park will link to transportation hubs by electrical means.

In West Kowloon, The Harbour Park will occupy about 100 acres of land among which more than half is
currently used as roads. The marine shelter off Yaumatei will be used as a Marine Park which will also allow
normal non-polluting goods delivery sea vessels for serving Yaumatei grocery market. Electric sea vessels
will run from this marine park to suitable piers in Kowloon and HK Island.

The heart of the Park described below will extend to various parks of Kowloon, and to Hong Kong Island via
a cable car system. This HK side terminus will loge on a small park which is connected to the East and West
on HK Island along the harbour, with many polluting traffic paths covered by or redirected to covered
passages for pollution control. Clean Environment is basic to the Harbour Park.

The Harbour Park :
– Phase 1 – The heart of the Park
- The Integrated West Kowloon Sustainable Park Centre and Facilities for: Clean Environment, Art and
Culture, Sports, Fun and Recreation, Residence, Commerce, Hotels, Tourism, Education.

groups to collect views of the public from July to September, to come up with 3 designs for public comment
by end 2009.

The presented scheme is based on an optimized sustainable approach with a very strong clean energy
emphasis. In fact the presented scheme will, on top of the basic authority requirements, be enriched with lots
of other provisions including Clean Environment including Electrical transportation and clean fuel use, Art
and Culture, Sports, Fun and Recreation, Residence, Commerce, Hotels, Tourism, Education.
which are needed to address the growing population of HK, and to strengthen the 3 legs of sustainability,
namely environmental sustainability, societal sustainability, economic sustainability.

Summaries of the key provisions of this sustainable scheme for West Kowloon Cultural District are tabulated
below , which will be updated from time to time in the coming months.
