Kowloon Walled City Park used to be the military base of the Qing dynasty. After a series of historic events, such as the lease of New Territories to British, the lost of Qing’ governing right for Hong Kong and the occupation of Japanese on the area, Kowloon Walled City became a vacuum of civil order and then a nest of social problems like crimes, population, bad environment and hygiene and so on. Until 1984 when China and Britain signed on the Joint Statement, a decision was made to clear the Walled City by Hong Kong Government, which took effect in1993. Then the Kowloon Walled City Park was built on the original area which was officially opened to the public in 1995. In the park, there are small bridges and running water, Chinese gardens and historic relics of Kowloon Walled City.
