Historically Significant – On The Border
Tregunter Path marks one of the borders of what was known in the late 1800’s as Victoria City, which was a far smaller area of what we now know as Hong Kong Island. In 1903, the boundary of the "City of Victoria" was gazetted by the Government and was labeled by 6 boundary stones. The stones were 1m in height, with words "City of Victoria 1903" marked on them. The stones to this day stand as they were placed. Although no longer significant as boundary markers they have historical significance and highlight how much the “City” has grown. The six stones are located at the Kennedy Town Temporary Recreation Ground at Sai Ning Street; Hatton Road near Po Shan Road; Pokfulam Road south near the pedestrian subway of Mount Davis Road; Bowen Road near Stubbs Road; Old Peak Road near Tregunter Path, and the pedestrian road of the car park opposite to St. Paul's Convent School at Wong Nai Chung Road.
