Located at the heart of the city, nestled among towering and densely packed commercial and residential buildings, the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens (HKZBG) is the oldest and most popular park in Hong Kong which occupies an area of 5.6 hectares. It was first opened to the public in 1871 as the Botanic Garden, and was renamed as the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens in 1975 to reflect its increasing commitment to the display of zoological exhibits.
This year is the 150th anniversary of the HKZBG. Having served the public for one and a half centuries, the HKZBG carries the collective memories of Hong Kong people. To commemorate the event, the HKZBG will launch a series of celebratory programmes, including horticultural and zoological education exhibitions, guided visits, roving exhibitions, thematic talks on greening and conservation, music performances, etc., for public enjoyment.
