West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade
West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade (traditional Chinese: 西九龍海濱長廊; simplified Chinese: 西九龙海滨长廊) is a promenade running alongside Victoria Harbour on reclamed land west of Kwun Chung on the Kowloon peninsula of Hong Kong. It opened to the public on 17 September 2005.
As the West Kowloon Cultural District project has remained stagnant after a long debate, the Hong Kong Government constructed a promenade on unused reclamed land. The promenade is decorated with pillars of wind chimes and illuminated paintings as well as calligraphy invarious styles.
The 700 metres (2,300 ft) section along the shore is covered with wooden strips made from construction waste.
Dragon of Lanterns
There are seventy 4-metre (13 ft) high triangular lighting towers on the 1-kilometre (0.62 mi) "Dragon of Lanterns" . Wind chimes are hung at the top of the lighting towers.
