About this place

The Hong Kong Wetland Park is a park highlighting the unique ecology of the wetlands in the area. It was set up as compensation for wetlands lost to the development of the Tin Shui Wai new town development, and the nearby industrial estate.

The park is also home to Pui Pui, a crocodile found in the nearby Shan Pui river in November 2003, and finally caught in June 2004. This crocodile is suspected to be a pet, whose owner released the animal in the wild.

It comes with a 10,000-square-metre visitor centre and a 60-hectare Wetland Reserve showing off various types of wetland, and allowing for bird watching from two purpose built shelters.

The Wetland Park is best visited at low tide as then the mudflats are exposed, and common critters like fiddler crabs and mudskippers can be observed.
