Visiting Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park In Hong Kong

Waterfront Oasis For Families In Sai Ying Pun

Visiting Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park In Hong Kong

Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park has long been one of Hong Kong’s favorite parks by its residents, and for a good reason. The park covers an area of about 4.22 hectares, and the Park’s major facilities include one 7-a-side soccer pitch (artificial turf) and two basketball courts!

This piece of green is perfect for sunny days and comes complete with a harbor view. When it rains, take it inside to enjoy the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Center’s squash courts, public swimming pool, and changing rooms.



Dr. Sun was deported out of Hong Kong by the British colonial government due to the pressure of the Qing Dynasty. Dr. Sun played a leading role in the Chinese revolution. After his many returns to the mainland, he could only meet his friends and supporters aboard a boat at the present location of Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park, and the park is named after Dr. Sun as a result and to commemorate his contribution as the father of modern China.



  • The park includes an open lawn perfect for playgroup meetings, outdoor yoga, private trainer sessions, picnics, and more!
  • There are plenty of scooter-friendly sidewalks, and this could also be a good place to teach your little one how to ride their bike.
  • There is plenty of places for the sporty ones in this park/sports center; choose from a soccer pitch, basketball courts, squash courts, and a public swimming pool.
  • For the ones who are coming by car, you’re in luck, there is a fee-charging car park very close by that is for the park and the sports center.
