Old Site of the Possession Point (Shui Hang Hau)
Hollywood Road Park

The site was originally named as “Tai Hang Hau” (Big Puddle). Before Hong Kong was developed into a city, Hang Hau was located at today’s main road and its water flowed into Victoria Harbour. In 1841, the British soldiers landed there and named it the “Possession Point”. As the area developed, the big puddle was filled up and a road called Possession Street was built there. The street is called “Shui Hang Hau Street” in Chinese referring the big puddle which was once there.
