Rotary Park Nature Trail
The Rotary Park Nature Trail is the perfect place for children to get close to nature. A walk with barbecue sites at the start point, the trail is easily accessible and suitable for families. The lush woodlands along the trail give some welcome shade in summer. Together with the humid environment, it provides a habitat for many insects, including interesting-looking Owlflies, which have long antennae on their heads like dragonflies although they are not classified as dragonflies. Since they are attracted to dark, humid spaces, they can be found in bushes. Insects like Dung Beetles may also be spotted by the sides of the trail with careful observation. In early spring, Chekiang Machilus puts out bright red young leaves, which are pleasant to look at. The viewing point commands vistas on the south, including Steep Island, Lamma Island, Tsing Yi, and as far as the summit of Victoria Peak and Mount Davis on the western part of Hong Kong Island.
