Though, it’s important to bear in mind that pools may still be closed due to safety considerations, it’s wise to contact them beforehand in order to find out whether it will be open for public use.
Ma On Shan Swimming Pool offers an ideal spot for families looking to spend quality time together in the water, including four giant water slides (including an impressive 9m drop!).
