Hong Kong will increase the number of “Parks for Pets” by 50 next Tuesday, bringing the total number of pet-friendly parks to 170.
Rather than providing cordoned-off areas for pets, the scheme opens up entire existing parks for Hongkongers to visit with their furry friends.
“When identifying suitable locations as Inclusive Parks for Pets, the department has considered different criteria, including the demand of the public for these facilities, size and location of the venues, ancillary facilities and their usage,” a Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) spokesperson said in a Thursday press release.
Excreta collection bins, hand-washing facilities and extra cleaning work will be rolled out for the new areas, the spokesperson added.
More details can be found on the LCSD website.
