So Kon Po (Chinese: 掃捍埔) is located in the south of Causeway Bay and Victoria Park on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong, and neighbours upon Caroline Hill and Jardine's Lookout.

It contains the Hong Kong Stadium and the Tung Wah Eastern Hospital. So Kon Po was the burial grounds for the victims of the Happy Valley Racecourse fire in 1918. The remains were relocated to Aberdeen in 1953, when the Hong Kong Stadium was built on its grounds.
