Tai Tam is large country park that spans down nearly the whole of Hong Kong Island, encompassing about one fifth of Hong Kong Island's land mass from Jardine’s Lookout all the way south to Stanley. At the heart of this expansive reserve of rolling green hills and peaks is the large Tai Tam reservoir from which the Park takes its name "Tai Tam" in Chinese meaning “Big Pool”.
The notable developments in Tai Tam is the Hong Kong Parkview and Redhill Peninsula estates near Tai Tum Tuk, both provide family oriented developments with great facilities and its own retail, these estates are essentially little self-sustaining satellite towns amidst this expanse of greenery.
Parkview is closer to the centre of Tai Tam, between the Tai Tam and Wong Nai Chung Reservoirs, it consist of a large ring of apartment blocks built around numerous facilities and amenities. If greenery is a primary concern for a place of residence then Parkview is a superb candidate with nearly all its apartments having unobstructed open views of the rolling green hills in the surrounding park.

The Red Hill Peninsula developments is a mix of multi storey apartment blocks and Townhouses and all are strategically positioned to take full advantage of its surroundings with fantastic sea views into the bay and the green hills of the Tai Tam Park.
