Ocean Park was established in 1977. Under the Ocean Park Corporation Ordinance (Cap. 388), Ocean Park is to be managed by the Ocean Park Corporation as a public recreational and educational park. The Ocean Park Corporation is required to apply all its profits towards the promotion of its statutory functions. With more than 40 years of iconic history, Ocean Park has become a Hong Kong brand cherished by the Hong Kong people. This home-grown theme park in which we take great pride has received more than 156 million visitors since its opening some four decades ago, offering Hong Kong people and visitors from afar a great venue for leisure and entertainment. Apart from being the park of our own, and a key tourist attraction of Hong Kong with significant economic contributions, Ocean Park has all along made outstanding achievements in the fields of education and conservation.
