The Wetland

The original site of the park is located at an ordinary wetland of Tin Shui Wai. With the acceleration of urbanization around Tin Shui Wai, a large area of precious land was used for developing new cities and towns.

In 1998, to compensate for the ecological environment around Tin Shui Wai, Hong Kong Fisheries and Conservation Department and Hong Kong Tourism Board conceived to build a park there as a way to preserve this precious wetland.

In 1999, the park had been under construction with a total investment of HK$500 million. The park was developed for two consecutive periods. The first exhibition hall was completed and opened in December 2000, and later the second exhibition hall was finished on May 20, 2006, and was opened to the public as well.

As far as I know, there are many migratory birds here, but no big wild animals, like lions and tigers. It is very safe.
