Nestled within the heart of the Whampoa estate, Whampoa Park provides a green, open space with playgrounds, a pet park and even a ninja challenge course for teens and above.

Whampoa Park Playgrounds
There are two Whampoa Park playgrounds that cater to different age groups.
Enchanted Forest Playground
The younger age group can step into the Enchanted Forest Playground with a low play structure with slides and and climbing apparatus for their enjoyment.
There are a series of balancing beams for them to build up their confidence.
For some whimsical fun, how about riding an a unique dragonfly see-saw?
Or climb through a log tunnel.
There are also swings at the Enchanted Forest Playground, including one that parent and child can enjoy together.
Look out for little play features like a two-tone bell that is built into the playground equipment.
Forest Adventure Playground
Older adventurers can venture into the Forest Adventure Playground.
The highlight here is the Magical Treehouse. There are many different ways to play here and for kids to reach the canopy level.
Climb up the climbing nets or take a ladder.
Tunnel bridges connect the upper layers of the Forest Adventure Playground and exciting slides provide a way for kids to make their way back down.
Other play features around the Whampoa Park playground include a climbing wall and stepping stones.
There’s a multi-person see-saw that we haven’t seen installed for a long time (the one at West Coast Park is no longer there) and an arc see-saw too.
There are also swings, including a basket swing, at this children’s playground.
The Whampoa Park playgrounds offer plenty of fun for kids of all ages.
Ninja Challenge Course
A unique feature of Whampoa Park is the Ninja Challenge Course.
While it may look like a playground, it is not. It is a fitness challenge for those who are 13 years old and above who want to put their ninja skills to the test.
There are five stations at the Whampoa Park Ninja Challenge Course.
It starts with the Ninja Steps, a test of speed and ability. There are different coloured areas marking different skill levels.
Other sections of the Whampoa Park Ninja Challenge Course include a Traverse Wall, Balance Walk, Sway Steps and Agility Pods.
Next to the Ninja Challenge Course is Whampoa Park’s Pet Park.
It is where pet owners can take their pets to enjoy open space too.
Other Amenities at Whampoa Park
Other facilities at Whampoa Park include a 400-metre running track that encircles the park and a more conventional fitness area.
There is also a raised lookout area and platform next to Whampoa River as well as a therapeutic garden.
You can find Whampoa Park and its playgrounds and facilities along Whampoa Road.
