Reply To: Keep off the Grass in Hong Kong parks


I emailed the Leisure the Cultural Services Dept re the keep off the grass signs
Just been phoned by a lady who’s [deputy manager] of the ZBG.]
She told me the grass in the ZBG is an ornamental kind, fairly readily damaged by people working on it. Plus, they’re working on new flowerbeds.
May later open grassy areas, so people can take photos of flowers; and in future will consider my suggestion to allow people on grass.
I said that not too high intensity use would seem fine to me; and I reckon people could stand seeing some damage – lawns don’t have to be like fine paintings.

The dep manager also mentioned Victoria Park, where have grassy areas people can use; different grass type (as Yuen Long park I figure).
