Located at the northern tip of Tin Shui Wai, the wetland park is the largest man-made ecological area ever built in Hong Kong.
The park, a 60-hectare swamp for birds and wetland creatures, was built to compensate the loss of natural habitat during the development of Tin Shui Wai new town.
The compound also features a large visitor where visitors can learn about preserving the natural environment.
It is also home to crocodile Pui Pui – which was found in northwest New Territories in 2003.

Even though the park currently charges a small admission fee to subsidise its operations, it is worth paying a visit as it provides a rare look into Hong Kong’s ecological diversity.
The Wetland Park is also linked to the rest of the city via light rail to increase accessibility.
