Map of Water Challenge 2013
|Distance and Duration||Route length around 6 km. Walking
time around 3 hours.
A low difficulty route was deliberately chosen to allow parents to bring along their children.
Aberdeen Upper Reservoir and Aberdeen Lower Reservoir, which encircled by the country park, were completed in 1931. Totaling 12,500,000m3 of water storage capacity, they were the last two reservoirs built by the government in Hong Kong Island.
A good part of the country park was damaged during the Japanese Occupation. The beautiful scenery which we see today is the combined result of post-war reforestation and natural regeneration of woodlands.
Challenge yourself with puzzle games and fun competitions on the topic of water resource with the chance to win attractive prizes while enjoying beautiful scenery along trail.
For more characteristics of the trail, please visit Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department website.
