Locating in Yuen Long District, the northwest of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Wetland Park is a 61-hectare park featuring board walks, mangroves fields, bird hides, flora and fauna found in Hong Kong, and a large indoor education centre. The park was intended as an ecological mitigation area (EMA) to compensate the urban development of this area which was rural villages and fish ponds. Now, it is a showcase of bio-diversity in Hong Kong.
Bird watching, butterfly garden, and Learning center
The park was well designed with various facilities to showcase the bio-diversity of Hong Kong. There are freshwater marsh, ponds, wooden, mangrove boardwalks, bird hides, and butterfly garden. It is a great outdoor classroom to learn about the variety of flora and fauna, and observe the mudskippers, crabs, birds, butterflies and dragonflies up close.
Find the Origin of Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a phonetic translation of “Fragrance Harbour”. Back in the old days, Hong Kong was a major port for trading Agarwood which resin was used to make fragrance. Today, there are not as much Agarwood cultivation in Guangdong and export through Hong Kong. There are a couple of Agawood in the Park. The flowering season is in spring.
