Hong Kong Pools – Fun For the Whole Family

While Hong Kong has a lot to offer, sometimes you want to just sit back and relax in the sun or splash around with your little ones. Luckily, you can do just that in one of the city’s many pools. With 44 public swimming pools across the city, it’s easy to find one that caters to your family’s needs. Many of the swimming pools have kiddie pools and water slides, making it a fun day out for the whole family. The price for adult admission is HK$17 during the week and HK$19 on weekends (and public holidays), and children under three are free!

Located right beside the Castle Peak Bay marina, this pool is perfect for kids. The palm-fringed pool offers one pool for adults and another for kids, with a small water park nearby featuring floor fountains, sprayers and kid’s water slides. Parents can sit back and enjoy a drink from the bar while the kids have their own splashing fun.

For adults, this pool is perfect for a dip with some gorgeous views. The rooftop pool is open to hotel guests, but you can also book a day pass and use the facilities, too. With lounge chairs, a bar and a fitness centre, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax while the kids splash around below you.

This pool is ideal for a quick swim or laps and is one of the busiest during the weekdays. With a large main pool, diving and teaching pools, and three outdoor leisure pools, it’s no wonder this is a favourite amongst locals. The pool is also heated during winter, so you can swim in comfort all year round.

If you’re looking to improve your swimming skills and compete in races and galas, this is the place to be. The pool hosts a range of swimming competitions throughout the year for members of the HKFC Swimming and Triathlon Society. It’s a great way to meet other swimmers and get in some early morning training before work.

A warning from the hk pools union: 20 public pools may only partially open this summer

The hk pools union said on Tuesday that about half of Hong Kong’s 45 public swimming pools have warned the city’s swimming training institutions to expect closures for some time this summer because of the lack of lifeguards. The union warned that the partial opening will affect the city’s sports development and swimmers.
