Phase 2 of the Kai Tak Station Square has water features, a lawn, and a playground.

The new phase of Kai Tak Station Square spans across 8.5 hectares of what used to be the site of the former Kai Tak Airport. Visitors can now access an open plaza with spacious lawn and water features, as well as two children’s play areas, fitness equipment, and a Tai Chi plaza. The government also plans to open two lawn bowls greens here in early 2024. This area of Kai Tak Station Square is also an inclusive park for pets, and will have facilities such as dog excreta collection bins and hand-washing facilities.

The first phase of Kai Tak Station Square opened in December 2021, along with the neighbouring Kai Tak Avenue Park. Phase I of Kai Tak Station Square comprises a lawn and lawn spread across 3.2 hectares on the site of the old airport. The slightly bigger Kai Tak Avenue Park features thematic gardens, a children’s play area, fitness equipment, and a basketball court.
