Twelve new parks in Hong Kong welcome pets

Starting Friday (July 1), another 12 government-run parks will welcome pets, bringing the total number of pet-containing venues to more than 110.

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department announced on Wednesday that more waterfront park sites, such as Tseung Kwan O Waterfront Park and North Point Pier Promenade, will be converted into pet-friendly parks under the Inclusive Park Project.

The new Inclusive Pet Park locations are as follows:

Central and Western District

Kwun Tong District

In order to allow park visitors and pets to use park facilities together in an inclusive environment, the LCSD launched six parks for pets to use in 2019 and launched the “Pet Inclusive Park” pilot scheme.

After the success of the pilot, from February 6 last year, “Pet Harmony Parks” have been added in various districts to standardize the arrangement.

The LSCD will provide additional basic amenities such as dog poop collection boxes and hand washing facilities to facilitate pet access to the park.

Members of the public are required to follow the LCSD’s guidelines when entering the Inclusive Park, including keeping pets on a leash and under proper supervision to avoid nuisance to others, cleaning up pets and keeping the park tidy.
