Hong Kong Park organises guided tours for "Exhibition on Aquatic Plants"

     The "Exhibition on Aquatic Plants" currently being held at Hong Kong Park has been well received by the public. In response to patrons' feedback, the Park will organise guided tours to boost the interest of members of the public and let them understand more about aquatic plants.

     Aquatic plants are well adapted to the water environment. These plants usually have fresh green petiolated leaves, while some even produce beautiful blooms. They may be free-floating, rooted in water or grown in wetland.

     The guided tours will be held on Saturdays and Sundays once every hour between 1pm and 4pm from August 23 to September 28 for free. Each tour will last for about 30 minutes.

     During the guided tours, the guides will introduce some common aquatic plants including the Indian lotus, the common rush, the galingale plant, the water hyacinth and the parrot's feather as well as showcase their characteristics and growth habits and share rarely known and interesting scientific information.

     Interested parties can assemble at the entrance of the Forsgate Conservatory of Hong Kong Park, 19 Cotton Tree Drive, Central. Places in the guided tours will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

     Park-goers are also invited to visit the exhibition, which will be open to the public free of charge from 9am to 5pm daily from now until September 30 at the Forsgate Conservatory. For details, please see the website:
