It was not like a forest. Just a park. But you can rent bicycles and ride along the river banks of Hangang River.

We dscovered Seoul Forest about 6 years ago when our children were quite young and it has remained a firm summer favourite. There is plenty to keep kids busy for a few hours from climbing frames and slides, feeding of the deer, followed by a cool off in the play fountains (don't forget your bathers). Now that our kids are... More

We went here in November so the surroundings are orange-gi. A perfect place to rest and avoid the city noise. It's kinda big and you need hours..... We had a lot of pictures here. I love nature, so I really enjoyed a lot. I want to visit the forest again in Spring and see the beauty of "green" Seoul Forest.... More

This place is my favorite place to relax in Seoul. With a big patch of green you can lie down on the grass and chill out kids play on bikes and families have fun. It's also large enough that it's not often overcrowded. The other attractions aren't all that like the butterfly garden. Don't come for that. Bring a ball... More

I visited the forest, which is really more of a park, with my girlfriend on an overcast, autumn/fall afternoon. We had a walk around in the cool weather and loved it. The colours were amazing. The forest also has an insect house, filled with butterflies, other exotic insects, some peculiar-looking fish, as well as a few large tortoises. Overall, despite... More

the place I like best is the playground where the very long slide is installed. Many kids line up to go down the slide and it's really fun and exciting. After you have fun at this playground with your kids, you go to the wide lawn for eating your lunchbox. And then you look around the forest. If you want... More

Seoul Forest is a nice park in the center of Seoul, with a nice environment. The park is big enough to make you forget that you're in the city. Nice playground for kids. However, although clean overall, it wasn't as maintained as other parks I visited. Also lacked cafes, restaurants shops or other "great" attractions to make this a "must-go"... More

I had a free morning before meetings and decided to check out Seoul Forest. It recevied great reviews and seemed promising. It was a let down. Perhaps it wasn't the right time of year (I visited in mid-October). It didn't seem that well taken care of. There were some flower beds still in bloom. I didn't think it was particularly... More

This would be an excellent place for kids to hang out. Playgrounds and ecoforest where they get to feed the deers. Excellent weather for visit in autumn. Free entrance and children can easily spend half a day without getting bored. The train station "Seoul Forest", on the Bundang line, is the nearest station to this place. Once out of the... More

Location: easily reach by bus or underground. (center part of Seoul, beside the Han River) Good Complex: with children facilities, jogging paths, wetland, animals and biking paths beside the Han River. There are also some cafe and convenient store in the park.
