From April 19 to May 1, families can take their first dive into the new experience this Easter as nature explorers embarking on a fun-filled adventure during the Park’s Animal Discovery Fest. 14 different interactive animal workshops and backstage explorer tours will be open to the public, including the all-new, limited-time ‘Meet the Walrus’ programme and the first-ever open house at the Park’s veterinary center. Guests will learn about animals spanning the sky, land, and sea whilst advocating the Park’s exemplary efforts and achievements in animal care and conservation.
The Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel
Located at Ocean Park, the new Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is the city’s first-ever urban resort hotel. Officially opened in February 2019, the hotel is reachable in just a few minutes from the city center and offers convenient transportation links. The eco-themed facility is comprised of three towers – The Pier Wing, Club Wing, and Marina Wing, offering a total of 471 contemporary rooms and suites, including 14 themed rooms featuring the Park’s adorable mascots, Whiskers, Bao Bao and Redd – a terrific choice for families to enjoy a holistic journey at Ocean Park.
The hotel lobby features a series of oceanic theme décors with a sustainable green concept. Between 19th and 28th of April, parents can enroll their kids into a three-hour educational lesson by booking the hotel-exclusive ‘Kids Discovery Club Package’ where they will visit animal exhibits, led by the Park’s education ambassadors, to learn about marine conservation in a fun-filled way.
Animal Discovery Fest
To enhance guests’ understanding about green living and environmental protection, a series of new educational initiatives will be open for guests to learn about the Park’s animals and understand the importance of the Park’s work in animal care and conservation during Animal Discovery Fest. Headlining this year’s festival is Meet the Walrus, the all-new, limited-time Get Closer to the Animal programme in which guests can observe the gigantic, mustachioed creature up-close, feel their skin, feed it and get a snapshot to capture the remarkable encounter.
13 other interactive animal workshops and backstage explorer tours, including a fun-packed moment with the adorable kinkajou and the extraordinary steppe eagle, as well as exclusive tours to the back-of-house facilities at The Grand Aquarium and Shark Mystique will also be staged during the festival. Sharing by the veterinary team during the first-ever guided tour inside the Park’s veterinary center will further deepen the learning of young explorers, inspiring them to play an active part in conservation.
