History of Victoria Park

The park was originally a typhoon shelter, known as Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, which is part of Victoria Harbour and is used as a typhoon shelter by fishing boats and yachts during the typhoon season. In the 1950s, the sanctuary was reclaimed and the park was built there. The typhoon shelter then moved to the north.
The park has always been a meeting place for domestic workers on Sundays. They usually have a day off. Since the early 20th century, helpers from Indonesia have dominated the west end and surrounding areas of the park as their numbers in Hong Kong have increased relative to those in the Philippines. A similar tradition for Filipino domestic workers is to gather around the Statue Square in the center of the city.


At the main gate of Causeway park is a statue of Queen Victoria. The statue used to be in the Statue Square.
The park includes tennis courts, swimming pools, bowling courts and other sports facilities, such as the central lawn, basketball court, football field and multiple children’s areas and playgrounds. The tennis center court, surrounded by 3607 spectators, is often used to host International Tennis Championships, such as the Hong Kong Open and the Hong Kong Classic. There are several pools in the garden to operate the remote control boat. The Victoria Park Swimming pool, which opened in 1957, is the first public swimming pool complex in Hong Kong and has recently been rebuilt as an indoor complex
