Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The park is built on the old airport runway extending into the harbour, where you can enjoy the view of both sides of the harbour. The history of air transport in Hong Kong is also displayed in the park.

Perhaps the most isolated patch of green space in all of Kowloon is the small Runway Park at the end of the old Kai Tak Airport runway, just next to the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. This small park was opened in 2014 as part of the grand opening of the cruise ship terminal. It is a Phase I project with more scheduled green and leisure area to be added in upcoming years. The park is open 24 hours a day.

Basically, Phase I of the park is a grassy lawn about 1 hectare in size surrounded by a promenade area with views of the waters toward Kwun Tung to the east and into Victoria Harbour to the south. There are some flower beds that look nice at the moment in the early spring.

Perhaps most interesting is exhibition of the white and orange coloured Government Flying Service (GFS)'s Jetstream 41 fixed-wing aircraft that is resting in the park. The plane is now decommissioned and sits on display at the park.

In the future, this may be a better park option for visitors. However, at present, it is too isolated and with too little to offer to recommend for non-residents or those waiting to disembark on a cruise departure.

I first knew this area as Hong Kong’s original airport. Once the new airport was opened this area was repurposed as a cruise ship terminal, with an urban walkway along the top.

As it turns out, that was quite an inspired idea. Great views of both Hong Kong, looking across the Harbor, basically at North Point and then toward Causeway Bay, as well as Kowloon on the opposite side.

Not on the A list of what to do but it gives a great perspective on the city. Make sure to go when its not too hot because the walking park is a long open area.

A fantastic place to go and relive the history of the old Airport. A big grassed area to be enjoyed and a good path going around the outside on the waters edge. Great place to go for a walk or just chill

There are many different parks in Hong Kong which were more convenient to get by. I was at Kai Tak because there was an invitation which include shuttle bus services. I will not there myself.

It is a small patch of grass located at the end of the old kai tak airport runway. The place is rather remote and isolated (for Hong Kong standard), and it is next to the cruise terminal (also another isolated place). But the place is somewhat unique because it is built on the tip of an old runway. It may be a good place for a picnic and spend an afternoon with your family...

Love the big lawn and the magnificent view of both eastern Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Other than taxi, you can take bus and also mini bus here. But the most enjoyable way is to take the ferry from kwun tong pier.

I wondered down to the Runway Park because it is the only way to get to the rooftop park. It's nice that there is some public space for normal people to enjoy. I can't really give it a higher rating, because it could have been so much better. There is so much land by the cruise terminal that could be used, yet the Runway Park seems to to be a halfhearted gesture to the local populace. It takes a long time to walk down the runway to get there and if I'm supposed to be really excited when I get down to the other end, well I'm not.

This is the tip of the old runway in Kowloon. A place to reminisce for those of us who can remember flying into the old airport in Hong Kong. To be honest they could have made a lot more of this place and it does say it is phase 1, so hopefully there will be improvement. They do have some interesting facts on benches and other floor markings for timelines etc. I did expect more of a museum about the old airport. There is a large lawn to relax on and wonderful views of the harbour and Kowloon.
It takes a bit of getting to! Do persevere though because it is worth it. We got a taxi, but there are public buses which run quite frequently from Kowloon Bay MTR. The bus drops you underneath the new Kai Tak cruise terminal. is only a small place and can be looked at in about 30 minutes, but do walk through the gardens on top of the cruise terminal. These were empty when I went, very well cared for and a very peaceful place to get a wonderful view of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.
The cruise terminal is not yet functioning, but there are some shops with a few expensive cafes. Take a picnic if you want to spend a while there.
