The Kai Tak Sky Garden is an elevated landscaped deck located atop Shing Fung Road, a carriageway running along the centre of the former runway. Not only does the landscaped deck act as a noise mitigation measure, but it is also a “green connector” that links up the landmarks in the vicinity. The Sky Garden will be connected to the future Metro Park to the north, the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, the Kai Tak Runway Park and the future Tourism Node development to the south, as well as the planned developments on both sides of the garden and the promenade on both sides of the former runway. The architecturally innovative and aesthetically unique deck is the first sky garden in Hong Kong that is situated on noise barriers designed with a curved and wavy pattern. It also creates a top-quality public space and serves as a place-making icon, emblematic of the vision for Kai Tak to become “a distinguished, vibrant, attractive and people-oriented new development area by the Victoria Harbour”. The theme of aviation The Kai Tak Sky Garden is designed by the Civil Engineering and Development Department. Encapsulating the theme of aviation, the Sky Garden brings visitors the nostalgia of the former Kai Tak Airport. Let’s take a look together! “Time-limited” AR and “check-in spots” A “time-limited” 3D augmented reality mobile application game and suggested “check-in spots” are available in the Sky Garden, providing visitors with opportunities for unleashing photographic inspiration and enhanced recreational experience.

Nicknamed as 'Bing Tau Fa Yuen' by locals ('Bing Tau' means the head of soldiers and 'Fa Yuen' means garden) and located close to the central business district of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens is the oldest public garden in the territory. Apart from housing century-old historic monuments, old and valuable trees and other exotic flora, the Gardens is also the home to a number of endangered species of birds, mammals and reptiles. Since its founding in 1871, the refine scenery of the Gardens has appeared in different works of literature, movies and television production, and wonderfully captured by tourists and photography-lovers through camera. The provision of interactive experience with flora and fauna also marks the significance of the Gardens, where urbanites can enjoy a moment of peace and a mindful appreciation of nature. In exploration of stories about the Gardens and the relationship between human and nature, the Art Promotion Office will launch the 'Hi! Flora, Fauna' art project featuring 17 artists/ artist groups*, together with our Curatorial Partner (Image Art) Lumenvisum and Music Collaborator Hong Kong New Music Ensemble. Drawing inspiration from the history, collective memories, cultural imagination as well as natural attractions of the Gardens, the artists will present their creativity via a variety of art mediums and organise a series of site-specific activities, offering a one-of-a-kind experience. Throughout the artistic journey, you are invited to explore meanings and treasures of the Gardens — let's share new memories and continue to grow with this place we all love. *(17 artists/ artist groups includes, Nadim Abbas, Chan Hay-ching, Enoch Cheung, Eunice Cheung, Deep Food, Impromptu Projects, Human Ip, Sharon Lee, Leong Ka-tai, Leung Mee-ping, Ng Hoi-chi, Gretchen So, Tung Wing-hong, Dio Wong, Morgan Wong, Wong Wo-bik, and &dear.
