Located at Albany Road in Central, the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens is the oldest park in Hong Kong. Built in 1860, the Gardens was fully completed and opened to the public in 1871.
The Garden used to house an assemblage of native plants for collection and research in its early years, and had therefore been known as the Botanic Gardens. Since 1876, the Gardens expanded its zoological collection comprising birds and mammals, and was officially renamed as the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens in 1975.
The Gardens covers an area of 5.6 ha. The eastern part of the Gardens, known as the Old Garden, provides children’s playground, aviaries, a greenhouse and the fountain terrace garden, whereas the western part, or the New Garden, is mainly home to mammals and reptiles. On top of the zoological and botanical attractions, visitors may also enjoy a stroll down the heritage trail and savour the stories of the Gardens.
