Inspiration Lake (Chinese: 迪欣湖), officially known as The Inspiration Lake Recreation Centre (traditional Chinese: 迪欣湖活動中心), is a 12-hectare artificial lake located in Penny's Bay, Lantau Island, Hong Kong. The lake, opened on 16 August 2005, was created as part of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort as a dual-purpose project for recreation and an irrigation reservoir.

Inspiration Lake was built by the Hong Kong Government and managed by the Hong Kong International Theme Parks. It opens daily from 09:00 - 19:00; entrance is free.

Facilities

The entire Recreation Centre has a total area of about 30-hectares, and consists of the 12-hectare lake — the largest artificial lake in Hong Kong, a boat centre, arboretum, 1,500 m jogging trail with exercise areas and a children's playground. The lake has a depth of between 60–100 m; and features waterfall cascades and water fountains/jets capable of shooting up to 18 m in height; and decorated with natural and man-made boulders plus some 4,800 trees and 430,000 shrubs. Paddle boats are available for hire at the boat centre; also changing room, toilet and snack bar facilities are available on site.

The artificial lake of 12 hectares features water cascade, water jets, and aquatic plants.

The water jet at the lake with an illumination design can shoot water up to 18 m high. Apart from its recreational purpose, the lake water is a source of irrigation for the entire Penny's Bay.

Along a 1500 m jogging trail emanating from the boat centre and extending around the lake, there are fitness stations, gazebos and a waterfall bridge.

Transport

The lake is approximately 15 minutes walking distance from Disneyland Resort MTR station and the Disneyland Resort Public Transport Interchange. It is served by the following franchised bus route, jointly operated by Citybus and Long Win Bus Company:

  • R8 Disneyland - Lantau Link Toll Plaza (via Inspiration Lake) (from 09:00-19:00 daily)

Parking is available at HK$25 per hour for private cars. (2007 rate.)

Many Hong Kong residents take advantage of the beautiful waterfront scenery by having their wedding pictures taken there. On any given day you will see a myraid of Hong Kong couples taking pre-wedding pictures there in full white dress and white tux.
