    Parks with parallel bars in MK/Prince Edward?

    Hey, as the title suggests, looking for one of those local neighbourhood playgrounds which has horizontal bars (for doing pullups) and parallel bars (for doing dips etc)?
    I live in Prince Edward but can walk to MK, whereever there is a decent setup.
    Let me know thanks!

    A number of parks in the area have fitness equipment for elderly people (as they are referred to). For example, Fa Hui Park, Sai Yee Street Garden, and Shek Kip Mei Park. A little further afield is Nam Cheong Park in Sham Shui Po. Perhaps a stroll around your neighbourhood will enlighten.

    Thanks for the link. Seems like Kowloon Park in TST has a large setup so might go there and have a look.
    Will also have a look at the playgrounds around Boundary St in Prince Edward.

    Do you live in MK? Would love to know if you find a good body weight workout park around there!

    I'm just working in MK. I live in Tiu Keng Leng/Tseung Kwan O, but I could not find proper parallel bar there. So I just use some kids horizontal ladder to do pull ups.

    I just went to check the one in Yau Ma Tei (King's Park Rest Garden) : they got these good parallel bars but no other cool equipment nearby so if you got a specific routine with pull-ups its gonna be difficult. I'll go check the TST one someday, as it does looks well furnished.

    Have you seen Hannibal King videos? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8zpYw0m8sQ
    I want to start doing workouts like his hehe

    Thanks for letting me know about the Kings Park one. I'll advise if I find anything good.

    Hehe. Yeah Hannibal King seems to be pretty pretty strong ! Impressive !
    I can't yet do a proper pull-up (I have to jump and do negative pull-ups for the moment) but we'll get there I am sure...
    Add oil and Never Give Up !

    Anyone interested in doing a weekend calisthenics gathering? I'm an amateur who has been motivated by videos from bar brothers/strength project/bar starz/Ido Portal.

    I've been going to Victoria Park on the weekends but it would be great to find and train with some like minded fellows!

    Was travelling by bus along Cheung Sha Wan Road yesterday, looked over and saw a tiny park with both parallel bars and horizontal bars.. perfect setup.. But it's a bit out of the way for me, I'll probably have to catch a bus out if I wanted to get to that spot again..

    You can use the kids' playground equipment for pullups too. The crossbars are fatter, so I prefer them for pullups.
