Family-Friendly Guide To Kennedy Town With Kids

Things To Do In Kennedy Town

Family Friendly Guide To Kennedy Town, Hong Kong

Kennedy Town is the seamless melting pot of old and new, and one of the hottest neighborhoods in Hong Kong! With MTR access, its easy to get to this waterfront haven of international food, spacious playgrounds and playrooms, modern restaurants, historical architecture, and local and international culture. K-Town offers a little something for the whole family. Go West!

  • Lo Pan Temple, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong


    The beauty of Kennedy Town lies in its harmony of old and new, local and expat. Look out for funky low-rises from the '60's, medicinal tea shops, Cha Chaan Teng, and more. Mini history enthusiasts will cherish the stunning Lo Pan Temple which was erected in 1884 for the patron saint of Chinese builders and contractors. Continue your history lesson by walking along the WWII remains at the Mount Davis Path. To learn even more about the fort ruins and secret bunkers, try the talks and walks tour with Jason Wordie or Walk Hong Kong’s WW2 Walking Tour.

  • Kennedy Town Swimming Pool, Hong Kong


    For a splashing good time, head over to the Kennedy Town swimming pool which includes heated indoor pools, an outdoor pool overlooking the Victoria Harbor, and a fun children’s pool, for enjoyment all year long! When kids need to burn off energy and parents want to relax, try a picnic at Belcher Bay Park – where the whole fam will enjoy the huge playground and grassy lawns. Or try the playground on Forbes Street, then cool down with ice cream and waffles at Summer Ice. For a little taste of old Hong Kong, hop on the tram directly in front of the Forbes Street Playground and head to town - always a hit for little and big adventurers! Rainy days call for FunZone, an extraordinary play space for toddlers and kids! Tiny tots will love the dinosaur-themed soft play area at the Smithfield Playroom, while mini-chefs will appreciate Sesame Kitchen’s classes which include gluten-free and vegan cuisines!

  • Waterfront Adventures In Kennedy Town, Hong Kong


    Kennedy Town is home to one of the last remaining undeveloped strips of waterfront in Hong Kong, but perhaps not for long. For a unique only-in-HK adventure, grab the kids' scooters and head to a newly developed area of Kennedy Town, the Western PCWA Landing no. 1. Although it doesn't have a great name, this is a great place to take the kids for a fun outdoor adventure. Other than a fun trip there are also many waterfront cafes and lunching spots to take the kids!

  • Breakfast And Brunch Spots For Kids In Kennedy Town, Hong Kong


    Early risers will love Waffling Beans especially since they specialize in scrumptious and savory waffles as their name suggests. But if you can’t resist the smell of freshly baked baguettes, croissants, coffees and pastries, then head over to Maison Keyser for an authentic artisanal French breakfast. And while a sit-down breakfast is lovely, sometimes families need a quick take-away for those rushed mornings (we’ve all been there) – The Cofftea Shop will give mums and dads their much needed caffeine-boost while kiddos can munch on their sandwiches and muffins on the go.
