Nature Discovery Park is Hong Kong’s first urban biodiversity museum and sustainability-themed education park. Showcasing Hong Kong’s ecological importance and global value, it plays host to a variety of rare tropical and native plants, an aquarium, and naturally attracted butterflies.
Nature Discovery Park promotes a more sustainable urban lifestyle. It champions farm-to-table dining, vertical farming, and plastic reduction, all the while supporting local social enterprises and environmental conservation. Part of the bigger K11 Musea regeneration project (dubbed the ‘Silicon Valley of Culture’), it’s the final piece of a 10-year regeneration of the Victoria Dockside in Hong Kong. Inspired by the vision of Adrian Cheng, it was designed as a space to incubate creative talents and propagate culture, art, architecture, design, and sustainability. The Head of Sustainability behind the project is none other than our very own Green Warrior, Ellie Tang.
The Nature Discovery Park workshops and events aim to promote the UN Sustainable Development Goals endorsed by the New World Sustainability Vision 2030 (in particular UNSDG 3; health and wellbeing, UNSDG 4; quality education, UNSDG 11; sustainable communities, and UNSDG 17; partnerships). Workshops offered include an urban farming experience, farm-to-face beauty product making, mindful meditation, and more. It also works with sustainability influencers in order to drive positive social and environmental impacts and create shared value.
In addition to K11 MUSEA’s green building certifications (including the Hong Kong BEAM Plus Provisional Assessment Gold Level and the U.S. LEED Gold Level Certification), Nature Discovery Park helps preserve the city’s rich biodiversity and calls for a more sustainable urban lifestyle by promoting farm-to-table and vertical farming and plastic reduction for marine health, as well as supporting local social enterprises and environmental conservation.
