Seoul Forest is a massive park dotted with over 400,000 trees and 100 different animals. The public establishment is divided into five areas: Cultural Art Park, Ecological Forest, Nature Learning Field, Wetlands Ecological Field, and Han River Waterside Park. A range of environmental and ecological programs for kids, teens, and adults will entice visitors of all ages. Rent a bicycle or rollerblades from the rental stall located by Gate 1. It is open year-round, and admission is free.
A small Chinatown prospers in the park’s vicinity near Konkuk University Station.
The best-known Chinese specialties here include grilled lamb and hot pot dishes.
The nearby Ttukseom Resort is the site of one of the nation’s largest weekend flea markets, held from March through October.
Springtime visitors will be delighted with the park’s enhanced customer program charged with organizing rock concerts, painting exhibitions, and sporting activities.
