Penfold Park closes for Olympic construction

3 July 2006

The Hong Kong Jockey Club announced today that Penfold Park at Sha Tin would be closed from the end of July to next April for the construction of training facilities for the 2008 Olympic equestrian events.


John Ridley, Head of Racing Operations & Equestrian of the Hong Kong Jockey Club, said the move was to ensure public safety and minimise the impact on the egretary in Penfold Park.

He said that construction would start in August for a cross country training track, a bridle trail, four sand training arenas and associated drainage and irrigation works.

"There will be a large number of construction vehicles entering and leaving Penfold Park," Mr Ridley explained. "The closure is to ensure public safety. In addition, there is an egretary in the park. On advice from the Environmental Protection Department, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department and the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society, we need to finish the construction by the end of February to reduce the impact on the birds' habitat during the breeding season between March and August."

Penfold Park will also close in summer 2007 for the test events and during the Olympic and Paralympic events themselves in 2008.

As venue provider for the 2008 Olympic equestrian events, the Hong Kong Jockey Club will return the park back for use by the public after the Paralympic Games by the end of 2008.

沙田彭福公園暫停開放 進行奧運馬術設施工程

二○○六年七月三日

香港賽馬|今日宣佈,沙田彭福公園由今年七月底至明年|月暫停開放,以便興建二○○八年奧運馬術比賽訓練設施。

馬|賽事及馬術事務執行部主管黎達理表示,這是為了確保公眾安全,以及盡量減低工程對園內白鷺棲息地方造成的影響。

黎達理謂,興建工程將於八月展開,包括越野賽訓練跑道、策騎|、|個沙地練習場,以及相關的排水和灌溉工程。

黎達理解釋說:「工程進行期間,大量建築車輛|不斷進出彭福公園,所以關閉公園是為公眾安全著想。此外,現時公園內有一個供白鷺棲息的地方,根據環境保護署、漁農自然護理署和香港觀鳥|的建議,每年三月至八月是白鷺的繁殖季節,所以我們必須趕及在二月底完成建築工程,以減低對白鷺生態造成的影響。」

彭福公園亦|於二○○七年夏季暫停開放以便進行奧運試賽。二○○八年奧運|及殘疾人奧運|馬術比賽|行期間,彭福公園亦|再度關閉。

作為二○○八年奧運|馬術比賽場地的提供機構,馬|於○八年底殘疾人奧運|馬術比賽結束後,|把彭福公園還原,供公眾人士使用。

不知今年出生的鷺鳥是否已經全部離巢?

Have this year's egrets all fledged yet?
