The scenic views of Tsuen Wan are enjoyed by many. Taking a stroll from Tsuen Wan Riviera Park to Tsuen Wan Park, one can enjoy a panoramic view of Tsing Yi, Rambler Channel and Ting Kau Bridge from afar at the Tsuen Wan West waterfront promenade.

Tsuen Wan Sports Centre, adjacent to Tsuen Wan Park, provides diversified recreational and sports facilities that allow everyone in the family to enjoy the fun of exercising.

The Government strives to implement the about 82 km-long “New Territories cycle track network”, connecting the East and West of the New Territories for the purposes of leisure and recreation. As part of the network, the Tuen Mun to Ma On Shan backbone section was linked up last year, while the Tsuen Wan to Tuen Mun backbone section, about 22 km long, is being implemented in stages. The waterfront section in Tsuen Wan was opened on 19th July last year for public enjoyment. The newly opened cycle track is built along the waterfront, running from Tsuen Wan Riviera Park to Bayview Garden, and about 2.3 km in length. Apart from the cycle track, the project team has built two resting stations along the way, with spaces for parking bicycles and for cyclists to take a rest. Moreover, a cycling entry/exit hub is built near Hoi Hing Road with a cycle practising area, sheltered benches, a public toilet, cycle parking spaces, a drinking fountain, etc.

Cyclists can enjoy the stunning view of Rambler Channel and Tsing Yi Island while riding along the new cycle track, which passes through a number of public leisure and recreational venues in the district, such as Tsuen Wan Park, Tsuen Wan Riviera Park, Tsuen Wan Promenade, etc. The cycle track is located next to the MTR Tsuen Wan West Station and Tsuen Wan West Station Public Transport Interchange, allowing convenient access for visitors from other districts.
