The Leisure and Cultural Services Department's newly opened Ma On Shan Recreation Ground provides various outdoor leisure and sports facilities for people of all ages.
Situated next to the Ma On Shan Sports Ground, the 4.1-hectare recreation ground is the first department recreation ground in the area with a mix of outdoor ball-game facilities.
The ground is equipped with an 11-a-side artificial turf soccer pitch, two outdoor tennis courts, two outdoor basketball courts and a seven-a-side hard-surface soccer pitch.
Also, there is a children's play area, elderly exercise stations and a pebble path.
"The range of facilities means there is something to suit everyone," a department spokesman said.
"The public will be able to keep healthy through regular exercises," he said.
The tennis courts, basketball courts and seven-a-side soccer pitch are open daily from 7am to 11pm while the 11-a-side soccer pitch will be open from 8am to 11pm.
