Kowloon Park Swimming Pool was opened as part of the massive expansion and redevelopment project that started with the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre construction in 1987.

Manhattan on the other hand boasts 21 locations. Perhaps this new map can encourage our government to make additional changes!
