A new education park in Tai Po will accommodate 10,000 young visitors each year. It was built with a $2.3 million donation from the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC). The HKJC Education Park, operated by the Hong Kong Award for Young People (HKAYP), is located at the Duke of Edinburgh Training Camp in Tai Po. It is equipped with various facilities including a training course, a watchtower, a stove for outdoor cooking and a camping site. The HKJC Charities Trust has been a long-standing supporter of the HKAYP and in recent years has donated more than $9.7 million towards the redevelopment and renovation of the camp in the New Territories. Recognising the importance of improving training facilities at the camp, the trust donated a further $2.3 million in 2003 to construct an education park. Completed earlier this year, the park consists of four sections: a military-style assault course which provides physical fitness and endurance training; a watchtower which serves as an elevated platform for studying the surrounding natural environment and running star-gazing activities; facilities for outdoor cooking; and a camping site which will give participants the chance to enjoy life outdoors. Prince Edward of the United Kingdom, also the chairman of the International Award Association Council, officiated at the park's opening ceremony last month.
