This is a relief in the bustle of the town. A nice walk along a stream with waterfalls and many plants and trees.

If you’re out of things to do this a nice break from the commotion. It’s a peaceful area to walk in. With flowers and a stream. They turned an old canal in to a lovely walking park.

Nice to escape to this perfect place and stroll the full length at whatever pace takes your fancy. Take in the atmosphere, people watch or track your pace and do it as a workout. There is something for everyone and I loved it.

Seoul is an absolutely fabulous city full of fun, excitement, beauty, culture, but it is hectic. This stream in the middle of it all is an amazing escape and peaceful oasis where you can walk, sit and people watch and just recharge.

These days it is hard to imagine how this space was before the previous road was demolished. It was worthwhile overcoming the various objections raised to thwart this project that has now clearly much improved the urban environment

Nice view for photo and nice place to visit. Good to learn about the historical and community environment. In the past, this area was a railway. But in the present, this is a nice park in the central of Seoul.

We stayed a bus ride away from the stream so we appreciated the nature amongst the bustling city when we arrived. The Stream is set lower than the streets surrounding it which separates the area a little better and as we walked down on a...More

Hi - I don't know about a lantern festival. The stream and walkways, including bridges and stepping stones, looks nice at night because of the lighting along the pathways.
