Lai Chi Kok Bay

Lai Chi Kok Bay (Chinese: 荔枝角灣) was a bay west of Lai Chi Kok in Hong Kong. North of the bay is Kau Wa Keng. The bay was largely recreational during its history. In early and mid 20th Century, bathing pavilions were built on the beach of the bay for swimmers. Boats are rent for rowing around the bay. Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park, Song dynasty and theatres are built on the shore of the bay. The bay was later reclaimed for building KCR West Rail (now MTR West Rail Line) Mei Foo Station and recreational facilities like park, swimming pool, library and indoor sports facilities.
