Nice and quiet on weekdays (unless there are group tours from local schools), but very busy on the weekends. Facilities and (multi-lingual information) displays geared towards families and kids. Nice short walks outside; but can get pretty hot during the summer months. Large crowd not conducive to serious bird watching (noise and crowded conditions) so avoid the holidays if possible. Worth taking the trip and spending a few hours there particularly if you can string together other attractions in the vicinity.

Easy to go by light railway, there is a small cinema keeps playing BBC wildlife movies.
Some places for visitors to see or to take photos for wild birds.
Entry fee is reasonable, a good place for kids education and for leisure.
But I strongly recommend people to come at weekdays. At weekends, there maybe group tours.

I knew Hong Kong Wetland Park was far but expected it to be this vast nature reserve where I could relax away from more urban parts of Hong Kong.

Instead, the parts where you can actually walk around were underwhelmingly small, seemingly no larger than Kowloon Park. And on a sunny Sunday afternoon, the half of the park closer to the entrance was noticeably crowded and full of screaming children.

The highlight of the park was definitely the "hides", these lookouts throughout, where you could see through wooden windows to bird watch from a distance. It had decent educational exhibits on wetland ecology, too.

However, how good it was relative to location was underwhelming, unless you live nearby so it's like your closest city park.

Alternate experiences I would recommend, most of which also have lots of kid visitors:
Shenzhen skyline: Ha Pak Nai beach
Plants, animals and education in the New Territories: Kadoorie Farm & Botanical Gardens
Afternoon out in the park: Hong Kong Park, Kowloon Park or any of Hong Kong's many other amazing city parks

You can get to this park by light rail (West Rail) Tung chung line, from central. Surprisingly not a lot of people. you can walk for an entire afternoon in there. Bunch of birds depending the seasons.

Enjoyed our day here although bird life not massive in amount or range.
Very clean and tidy and well laid out. Lovely surroundings. Good pathways suitable for less mobile or wheelchair users.
Great to be in gardens in this busy city.
Surrounded by greenery and then high rise in the backgrounds.
Mangrove boardwalk closed, This was a shame. Lots of other area to cover and we meandered and sat in hides for a good few hours. Slow day.

Spoonbills seen flying over and resting in mud scrape area.

Very few other visitors so quiet about spot.

Food available in the restaurant. Sandwiches ordinary
