Kennedy Town (Chinese: 堅尼地城) is at the western end of Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong. It was named after Arthur Edward Kennedy, the 7th Governor of Hong Kong from 1872 to 1877. Administratively, it is part of Central and Western District.

Due to its distance to major commercial cores and lack of MTR access, town development is not as vigorous as other parts of urban Hong Kong; this is expected to change when the MTR extends to the area.


堅尼地城(英語:Kennedy Town)位於香港的香港島區居住區的最西端。堅尼地城地區行政上屬於中西區。它是香港最早期被開發的地區之一,是維多利亞城的一部分。堅尼地城來自香港第七任總督堅尼地。他任內積極開闢土地,填築了西區岸邊土地。由於堅尼地城處於香港島區最西陲,地緣因素使該區在二戰後的發展較中上環區、灣仔、銅鑼灣和北角都要緩慢。堅尼地城一直被視為港島區之中較為偏僻的住宅區。而且,很多較為擾民的社區和工業建設,如焚化爐、水泥廠、屠房、殮房和廢物轉運站等。
