Original Site of Tai Tat Tei
Hollywood Road Park

Once occupying a small hill on the shoreline, this site is where British soldiers landed and held a formal flag-raising ceremony to take possession of Hong Kong Island in 1841. Barracks were then built here, but later moved to Central. The site was turned into a market commonly known as Tai Tat Tei ('big piece of land') and later converted into Hollywood Road Park.
