Hong Kong has designated 60 additional parks as pet-friendly.
To address public demand for pet-friendly parks in the city, the Recreational and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced on April 21 that more than 60 leisure sites around the territory would be classified as 'Inclusive Parks for Pets.' In 2019, the LCSD launched a six-park trial program called Inclusive Park for Pets. These parks were followed by 35 more in 2021 after their successful installation.
Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park, Victoria Peak Garden, Wing Lee Street Rest Garden, Aberdeen Promenade, Ap Lei Chau Park and Waterfront Promenade, Hung Shing Street Rest Garden, Shek O Headland Picnic Area, Stanley Promenade, Bowen Road Garden, Kai Tak Sky Garden, Sheung Li Uk Garden, and others will be among the parks.
In these facilities, extra cleaning will be done, and dog excrement collection bins and hand-washing facilities will be introduced for the convenience of dog owners. Dog owners must keep their dogs on a leash, watch their pets to avoid bothering other park visitors, and clean up any mess made by their pets to keep the parks clean.
