Blossom Around Town for anniversary celebrations (with photos)


     To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR)’s establishment and allow wide participation by the community in sharing the festive joy, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will run the Blossom Around Town programme from June to October for enhancing the public appreciation of gorgeous landscape displays and beautiful floral arrangements. This programme is under the exclusive sponsorship of the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), and is one of the many initiatives supported by the HKJC’s approved donation of $630 million to the Government of the HKSAR to mark the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, demonstrating that the HKJC is resolute in pursuing its purpose of acting continuously for the betterment of society, all in support of creating stronger communities together.

     The beautification works will be carried out in phases at parks and locations in various districts. Works include displays of colourful flowers and attractive plants with ornamental value to create a cheerful community atmosphere and enhance the cityscape across the territory.

     Phase one will be implemented from today (June 1) to July 31. To beautify the environment, enhancement of 21 roadside amenity areas, including flowerbeds at roundabouts and central medians with colourful flowers will be conducted by the department.

     Phase two will be from June 13 to August 7. Twelve prominent parks and locations with easy accessibility will be covered by colourful flower seas, flower walls with local characteristics, a maze garden suitable for all ages and “birthday” themed garden plots in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the HKSAR’s establishment to encourage appreciation of flowers and public amusement.

     Phase three will run from September 9 to October 16. The department will set up themed garden plots in Oriental and Western styles at designated parks in the 18 districts for public appreciation and photo-taking.

     People of all ages are welcome to join the programme and the admission is free. Apart from visiting the venue in person, the public can also visit the LCSD’s Blossom Around Town webpage ( for details.
