The Playgrounds of Commonwealth Crescent

Sharing is caring!

Commonwealth Food Centre and Market at Commonwealth Crescent is one of the few remaining examples of early markets in housing estates. Standing at the centre of a quadrangle lined with old-time shops on three sides, it is still popular for the food found on the second floor of its upgraded building.

The historic Chap Lau Chu or ten-storey flats at Commonwealth Crescent once epitomised the height of high-rise living. Today, it is a sleepy neighborhood where one can go to escape modernity. You won’t find gentrified, snazzy cafés here, but just some good, old-fashioned local fare, shops and businesses.

Ten Storey

Around Commonwealth Crescent are six children’s playgrounds. Some are minuscule while others are more up-to-date. They make for a fun playground-hopping experience. Play “seek-them-all” the next time you visit the Commonwealth Crescent Food Centre with the kids!
