Enjoy a stroll around the Nursery Park at the West Kowloon Cultural District and get a taste of the new waterfront park we will be building over the next few years. Get up close to some of the trees that will be in the future park, enjoy the open air, hire a SmartBike and ride along the promenade, bring your pets or a picnic or just lie back on the lawn – this is public space to be enjoyed.
Alongside the open space, there will be regular Freespace Happening events taking place on every 2nd Sunday of the month. Each Freespace Happening will bring together street performers, market stalls, music and other specially programmed events giving you a chance to experience what you can expect in the future cultural district and at the Freespace venue that will lie at the heart of the park. Visit the What’s On section for details of upcoming events.
If you are interested in trees and plants and want to know more about the species in the Nursery Park, please come and join our Nursery Park Tree Tour and Workshop. The Nursery Park provides a testing ground for the park tree planting. The trees are selected based on their growing habits, tree forms, foliage shape and seasonal colours and are grouped under the following four categories:
- Waterfront: a number of salt-tolerant plants which can be commonly found along the waterfront and in areas close to the water.
- Woodland: a number of native plants that are commonly found in the countryside of Hong Kong. The species are selected for their seasonal colours in terms of foliage, flowers and fruits.
- Urban Forest: mostly shade-tolerant plants, with beautiful shapes and excellent branching habits to allow sufficient space for pedestrian circulation and other activities under the tree crown.
- Orchard: fruit trees commonly found in Hong Kong and the Southeast Asia. These species are proposed in the Tree Nursery for trial planting and educational purposes.
