     The Home Affairs Department (HAD) announced today (April 21) that the music fountains at Kwun Tong Promenade (near the entrance of How Ming Street) will be opened tomorrow (April 22). The music fountains belong to a project recommended by the fourth term of the Kwun Tong District Council under the Signature Project Scheme. The facility, built with the concerted efforts of the HAD, the Architectural Services Department and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, will further promote the Kwun Tong Promenade as a leisure hot spot and will enrich public enjoyment.     With an area of about 3 740 square metres, the site comprises music fountains, interactive wet play areas and an amenity lawn (location map). The computer programmed music fountains feature not only a background display with water jets in different patterns, but also the presentation of musical masterpieces during daily performance sessions, including one of the music pieces performed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. The night shows further synchronise the music with kaleidoscopic beams.      There are three interactive wet play zones equipped with sensory devices, through which visitors can interact with water jets of various effects, providing a fresh experience for the visitors.       The service hours of the music fountains and interactive wet play areas are from 8.30am to 10.30pm daily. Three music fountains performance sessions are available from Monday to Friday, starting at 1.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Apart from the aforesaid three performance sessions, additional sessions will be available at 10.30am and 9.30pm (five sessions in total) on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays (sessions may be adjusted subject to relevant circumstances without prior notice).      In view of the latest situation of COVID-19, the Government reminds the public to maintain personal and environmental hygiene, and maintain social distancing when enjoying the wet play area and the music fountain shows.
