Dog owners can now walk their pups along the entire Central and Western District Promenade

Grab the leash! Dog owners can now walk along the waterfront from Kennedy Town to Sheung Wan as more “Inclusive Parks for Pets” open along Hong Kong’s harbourfront.

February 2021 saw respective District Councils opening an additional 30 pet-friendly leisure venues across the city, with over 10 “Inclusive Parks for Pets” located across promenades and parks near Hong Kong’s harbourfront. One area that didn’t make the cut however was the Central and Western District Promenade – Western Wholesale Food Market Section to Sheung Wan. An extremely popular waterfront walk for families and joggers alike, strict security and large “no dogs, please’ signs meant that dog owners were forced to leave their four-legged friends at home or take the not-so-scenic route along Connaught Road West. Newly painted signs however have since appeared along the entire Central and Western District Promenade, starting from Kennedy Town (next to the cargo pier) through to Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park and marked all the way along to Sheung Wan dog park.

Editors note: Construction is currently taking place where Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park links to Sheung Wan, so for now, you will need to take an alternative route around the park (rather than through it), as the park itself is not marked as pet inclusive.

Dog owners can now walk along Central and Western District Promenade from Kennedy Town to Sheung Wan and Central.

Pet-friendly areas are clearly marked along the Central and Western District Promenade

Although seating areas, wooden piers and playgrounds remain off-limits to pets, inclusive areas are clearly marked along the route, and are open for dog owners to walk, run and play with their pets. Additionally, the middle section between Kennedy Town and Sun Yat Sen has been kitted out with dog waste bins – a seemingly popular spot for owners to gather and let their pups socialise.

Dog owners are now able to walk from Kennedy Town to Sheung Wan in latest addition to Hong Kong’s “Inclusive Parks for Pets”.

Until now, those wanting to walk along the waterfront had to start from Central and Western District Promenade—Central Section, towards Tamar Park. Although dogs are expected to be kept on a leash and under control, the recent addition means that dog owners can walk all the way from Kennedy Town. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department is yet to update the list on their website, however the inclusive areas are already clearly marked and pet owners out in droves!
