Following the transformation of the former cargo working area into Kwun Tong Waterfront Promenade in 2015, the
newly-completed Music Fountain has enriched the promenade with water-friendly activities, and become a new focal
point in the promenade among the existing pavilions, landmarks and plazas.
To reinforce the connectivity of the waterfront to the city, the Fountain is strategically placed at the end of How Ming
Street – a main spine from Ngau Tau Kok Station to the waterfront. Its location at the vista has not only enhanced the
streetscape, but also signified the presence of waterfront at the end of the Street and attracted people to the
waterfront from the inland.
Place of Refreshment for All
The Fountain is a Place of Refreshment for all. The reflected pool under sunset and choreographed fountains bring
pleasure to visitors visually and acoustically. Benches with different heights around the fountains serve different
needs. Wet play features with various playing modes are designed for children of different ages. Kerb-less and
amiable circulation design tie in with the concept of barrier-free access. The Fountain has become one of the most
favourable attractions in the district for families during weekends since its opening in summer 2021.
Vibrancy in Kowloon East
The fountains are provided with interactive jets controlled by digital system, water performances with synchronized
choreography to music are scheduled regularly. During night time, with the panoramic view to Victoria Harbour as
backdrop, special lighting effects are added to the performances which further brings spectacularity to the shows.
With the synergy with the existing popular Kwun Tong Waterfront Promenade, new developments in the district, and
the enormous view to the Harbour and Cruise Terminal, the new Kwun Tong Music Fountain has further enhanced
vibrancy in the Kowloon East as “CBD 2” in the city.
