Tin Shui Wai (天水圍) is a sub-district in the North-Western corner of the New Territories region in Hong Kong. Tin Shui Wai lies on an area of reclaimed land which was once a site for fishponds and rice paddies built by the locals who used to live there. It was later developed into the residential town that it is today, in the early 1990s. In the late 1990s, the Hong Kong Wetland Park was built near Deep Bay (Shenzhen Bay) with the aim to educate the public on environmental protection and ecosystem conservation. If you take a visit there, you'll find mangroves and an array of wildlife from rare birds to freshwater fishes. There are a few public and private housing estates in Tin Shui Wai, as well as several Home Ownership Scheme estates. The two private housing estates are Central Park Towers and Kingswood Villas - comprising of 58 residential blocks that make it one of the largest private housing estates in Hong Kong. Tin Shui Wai is described as a picturesque and tranquil environment with a sleepy and rural feel. But like Fairview Park, it has a full range of community facilities ranging from libraries, swimming pools, parks, numerous schools, hospitals etc. Serviced by the Tin Shui Wai MTR station on the main MTR network (purple West Rail line), the area of Tin Shui Wai also has a light rail system.
