    Zoo in Yuen Long

    I heard that there is a private zoo in Yuen Long - does anyone know details?

    Huh? That would be the best-kept secret ever. There is a Wetland Park in Tin Shui Wai.

    Guess this is in the news (SCMP) about a man who may end up in court after running a "private zoo" in Yuen Long for 18 years. Seems a bit suspect to me. I haven't visited there and wouldn't.

    Lychee Valley near Yuen Long perhaps?

    I think you are probably thinking of Lychee Valley. My child really liked it as his kindie went there on a field trip. There was strawberry picking, a huge climbing net, animals and fish to feed and pony rides, but I'm not sure it is operational anymore since part of it (including the toilets for the park) were found to be on Government land and knocked down in recent enforcement action.
