New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

Caspar Tsui inspects Victoria Park

Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui today visited Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to inspect the preparations for the reopening of some outdoor leisure facilities.   Accompanied by Director of Leisure & Cultural Services Vincent Liu, Mr Tsui was briefed on the Leisure & Cultural Services Department's preparatory work and special measures.   These include limiting the number of players permitted to stay in the courts or lanes, closure of spectator stands, placing disinfectant carpets, provision of alcohol-based handrub and stepping up cleaning measures at the venues.   The department also arranged staff at relevant venues to undergo COVID-19 nucleic acid tests once every 14 days to safeguard staff and public health.   Mr Tsui reminded people who exercise in the reopened outdoor leisure facilities to take note of social distancing. The number of people in group gatherings should not be more than as stipulated by the law and they must wear a mask before and after exercise.   They are also required to scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code or register their name, contact number and the date and time of the visit before being allowed to enter those sports premises, he added.   Mr Tsui also thanked staff for sparing no effort in preparing outdoor leisure facilities for use by the public as soon as possible.   Outdoor leisure facilities to be reopened tomorrow include running tracks in sports grounds (for jogging only), tennis courts, bowling greens, gateball courts, Ngau Chi Wan Park Archery Range, Shek O Obstacle Golf Course, cycling facilities, outdoor badminton courts, outdoor table tennis tables, and the sports climbing walls, archery range, golf driving range and practice greens at Tuen Mun Recreation & Sports Centre.   People are urged to download and install the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app in advance to avoid a delay in their visits. Those who opt for registering their personal information at the venue are reminded to arrive earlier as a longer time is required for such registration.
