Old cannon in Fa Hui Park [????- ]

Out for a stroll with Phil this morning, he showed me this old cannon on a low hill in Fa Hui Park.

There isn't any information about it there, so can anyone shed any light on where it came from?

Sometimes old guns have been found during construction projects and mounted near where they were found. This overlooks Boundary Street, so is there any connection with the old Kowloon - China border? Or was it found elsewhere and just set up here as decoration?

Hi there,

There are various pieces in Chinese/Cantonese out there mentioning the canon was discovered when the Government constructed the park.   On the other hand the design of the canon looked similar to those found in Fan Ling.
