Notes:

1 Facilities which may also be provided indoors. However, indoor provision within Sports Centres on a share facility basis is normally considered as a bonus and does not count towards the HKPSG. In the absence of outdoor space, indoor provision within dedicated, purpose-designed, facilities may be countable.

2 Facilities which are normally provided in public housing developments as outdoor provision. Informal facilities such as kickabout areas or basketball shooting areas, and courts of minor substandard size may be acceptable and countable towards the standard of provision for recreation facilities in public housing developments which have obvious site constraints.

3 Optional facilities to be provided in public housing developments where site conditions permit.

4 Facility to be integrated with open space/play areas for all age groups and persons with disabilities to foster a sense of community in public housing developments.
