Lion’s Nature Education Centre in Sai Kung isn’t so much a farm, but is more like a sunny, sprawling park. Strolling through on a spring Saturday, you’re likely to see plenty of families playing badminton, chasing the dog, bird-watching or simply lying on the grass. The 16-hectare centre is also home to a large lotus pond, an insectarium, a rock academy, shell museum, Chinese medicinal herb garden and a butterfly valley − all of which provide a great opportunity for science-curious kids to explore nature. A large part of the centre consists of natural woodland with a conveniently marked trail. As one sign notes ‘more you walk, more you learn!’ There’s a small cafeteria as well, but Lion’s is a perfect place to enjoy a big picnic, so pack ahead. Daily 9.30am-5pm, free.
