Middle Road Children's Playground [1932-????]

Date Place completed: 
c.1932-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

I'm not exactly sure of its layout, but photos from the 1930s show an open patch of land bounded by Nathan, Salisbury, Chatham & Middle Roads.

12 Sep 2018 Update: Moddsey notes in the comments below that the playground was the eastern section of the land. I've updated the marker and outline.

Inspiration Lake, playground & park [????- ]

Date Place demolished: 

Last weekend some friends drove us and the girls out to Inspiration Lake. There's grass, and ... you're allowed to play on it! Quite a rarity for Hong Kong.

The car park for the lake is tiny, just 23 spaces. So while we were dropped off, our friend queued up until enough people left that he could get a space.

The area is part of the Disney development, but you don't need to pay to get in. There's a small 7-11 by the car park, but that's all in terms of shops.
