城門水塘 Shing Mun Reservoir

城門水塘(英語:Shing Mun Reservoir)是香港新界西南部的一個水塘,位於荃灣區城門谷一帶(城門郊野公園),為第一個把所儲存的水由新界區輸往港島區使用的水塘。為區別下城門水塘,城門水塘又稱為上城門水塘。亦因如此,廣義上,城門水塘是指上城門水塘及下城門水塘;而狹義上,城門水塘則是上城門水塘的真正名稱。由於興建時是正值英國國王佐治五世登基25年(1935年),上城門水塘亦名為銀禧水塘。由於整個城門水塘群剛好處於新界東與西的分界線上,上城門水塘被劃屬界線以西(屬荃灣區),下水塘則劃入界線以東(屬沙田區),所以,從廣義而言,城門水塘地既處新界西,亦處新界東。而貫穿兩地者便是1990年通車、同樣以該地地名「城門」命名的城門隧道,其共兩組隧道之間均以高架橋連接,並正正在下城門水塘和城門峽上方跨過。
