One can also see a basketball court at lower left corner above street level which is next to a building at 19 Hok Yuen street. That building was originally planned to be an extension of the Kowloon Docks Memorial School. It was actually used as a campus for the Sir Robert Black College of Education 1962-1974. From 2006, it became an extension of the Saint Timothy primary school at 14 Hok Yuen street. The basketball court still exists today.
