LCSD launches brand-new website to facilitate flower appreciation
The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (December 29) launched a brand-new flower viewing website (www.fa.gov.hk) to enable the public to keep abreast of the latest information on occasions and locations for flower appreciation.
There are over 1 500 parks and gardens under the management of the LCSD across Hong Kong. Featuring green canopies and seasonal blooms all year round, such parks and gardens draw crowds of flower viewers during flowering seasons.
On the new website, information like photos and videos for eight particularly beloved species, including red leaves (sweet gum, bald cypress and water pine), rosy trumpet tree, cherry blossom, yellow pui, camel’s foot tree, rhododendron, Queen crape myrtle and lotus flower, will be shown and updated regularly throughout their blossoming periods in selected LCSD parks for flower viewers’ reference.
The new website will also become a one-stop platform for flower appreciation, enabling members of the public to easily obtain relevant information of flower viewing at the LCSD venues such as the Hong Kong Flower Show, Blossom Around Town, Flower Appreciation 101, Flower Express and Photo-Gallery of Hong Kong Ornamental Plants.
The debut plant of this new website is red leaves in Tsing Yi Park, North District Park, Jordan Valley Park and the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Members of the public can check the foliage changes in these parks and seize chances to enjoy the seasonal beauty. The flowering status of the remaining seven species will be updated in due course.
