The Leisure and Cultural Services Departmentˇ¦s new swimming pool in Kwun Tong District commenced full operation this summer, giving swimmers another place to go in the swimming season.

The Kwun Tong Swimming Pool is conveniently located at 2 Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong (the former site of the Kwun Tong playgrounds and football pitch), adjacent to Tsui Ping Estates, It is now the largest swimming pool in Kwun Tong District, which offers a wide range of swimming facilities, including an indoor heated main pool measuring 50m x 25m, an indoor heated training pool measuring 25m x 30m, an outdoor secondary pool measuring 50m x 21m, two outdoor teaching pools measuring 25m x 12.5m and a sunbathing area.

The public swimming pool monthly ticket smart card is out now
 

Other than enriching the swimming facilities, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) also works to streamline the pool admission procedures. As the public swimming pool monthly ticket scheme has been well received by the public since its launch last July, the LCSD is issuing new smart cards to monthly ticket holders so that they could enjoy greater convenience for admission to the public swimming pools. This smart card is printed with the cardholder’s portrait and the validity period. Monthly ticket smart card holders can enter the swimming pool without having to present documentary proof of identity, which will make admission more convenient and easy.

Citizens can now apply for the use of smart cards free of charge at the 61 ticket outlets which include the LCSD’s district leisure services offices and booking counters of designated sports centres and leisure venues. The ticket is priced at HK$300. A half-rate concession is available for persons aged 60 or above, persons with disabilities and their minders (on a one-to-one basis), children aged between 3 and 13 and full-time students. Holders of valid swimming pool monthly tickets can also replace their tickets with the smart cards free of charge at the ticketing outlets mentioned above.
