Situated on Mount Parker Road in Quarry Bay, Woodside Biodiversity Education Centre was originally named as Woodside (also known as Red House). Built in the 1920s, the building was initially senior staff quarters of the Taikoo Sugar Refinery. After the closure of the refinery, the building became a Government property in 1976, and was once leased to the Institute of Cultural Affairs. Woodside was rated Grade 2 historic building in 2010 and was revitalised into the 1st biodiversity education centre in Hong Kong in 2012.
With an area of around 3 400 sq m, the Centre has 3 themed exhibition galleries, a nature garden, a resources centre and an activity room, etc. Public seminars, workshops and guided tours, etc. are held regularly. Visitors may also visit the Quarry Bay Tree Walk nearby to appreciate the native tree species.
