Does anyone know the exact location of this old amusement park? Wikipedia has this advert for it's grand opening on 22 Dec 1949, giving the address as 'King's Road, North Point'.

Hi there,

There is an entry in the Chinese version of Wiki.  It said the park folded in July 1954.  The park had been scaling down in it's last years.  There is a street name after it, called 月園街 Yuet Yuen Street.  The entrance of this short street is on Java Road, between Tin Cheong Street and North Point Road.  It's actually closer to the City Garden.  If you look up North Point Road in your map, Yuet Yuen Street is on its west.  It would be difficult to mark the exact area that Luna Park took up back then, but it should be safe to use Yuet Yuen Street as the focal point.

Best Regards,


Thanks T, I've updated the dates & location according to your findings.

Hi David,

Do we have a tag for similar establishments?  If not I guess we should create one.  There are earlier amusement parks\theme parks\entertainment establishments which might then be marked up on maps.

We might have to define what should be included and whiat should not though.


Good point. I found we already have the tag "Amusement park", so I've added it here. We have a few other Places with that tag:

Regards, David

Hi David,


I may create a few more locations with this tag later as I have some older entertainment establishments in mind.  Some of them are already listed in Wiki but they are all in Chinese only.


Accidentally I found this clip in YouTube of Luna Park.

That's a good find. The Luna Park section begins at 0:21:

My father took a lot of 8mm shots of me when I was small, which I had converted to thumbdrives/DVDs over the years. I divided the converted versions into small "shots" on YouTube.

I *think* this clip was when my baby amah, Ah Pah, and my folks took me to Luna Park in 1950  but ... big *BUT* ... it could also have been filmed at Laichikok's amusement park.  Would really love it if someone could either confirm it was taken on HK side or not!! heart
