Grass to run on?

Hello everyone

I will be in hong kong holidays. I was wondering if there are any grass area I could run on near Tai po.

I want to find grass to run on because my coach forbids me from running on bitumen.

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Grass to run on?

It would be hard to find grass to run on in Hong Kong, especially near Taipo, as stepping on grass is prohibited in nearly all our government parks and gardens. Maybe you can ask your coach if you can run on the running track so that you can train at the sports ground in Tai Wo.

Re: Grass to run on?

that's what I thought....

What about in grass area inside the track. do you think I will be allowed to run on it

I'm afraid it's not allowed too.

Re: Grass to run on?

The LCSD has sports grounds and recreation grounds. In the recreation grounds grass running is usually allowed. The two types are listed on the LCSD website.
