Yeouido Park is a large recreational area, a long rectangular park, located in the central part of Seoul. The park is divided into four themes mainly the Traditional Korean Forest, Grass Square, Culture Square, and Nature’s Ecosystem Forest. My main highlight to this park is for the cherry blossom trees, which are mostly 30 to 40 years old, all planted along in a stretch of about 6km long path.

There is a few ways to go Yeouido Park
1. Yeouinaru Station (nearer to Yeouido Hangang Park), exit 1, walk towards SBS TV Station.
2. Yeouido Station, exit 3, walk towards the National Assembly Building.
3. National Assembly Station, exit 6, walk along the path with trees.

On the other side of Yeouido Park and is the Yeouido Hangang Park, basically this part of the park is located along the Hangang River which explains the name.

Depending on what you are looking for. This park is for many things or activities. Walking, running, cycling & other activities. It is along the Han River and surrounding the Parliament House.
Try to go to the park in the early morning or evening. If intend to take photo of the cherry blossom, then it is best early morning with a quiet walking path without people to have a nice shooting.

Visiting Yeouido Park was the highlight of our holiday in Seoul. The cherry blossoms were the reason why we came in April during spring time. We have heard that it’s not easy to predict when the cherries will bloom. But on this day, the 19th of April 2013, we came, and saw with our own eyes what we had only previously seen in pictures. We were told that the cherries started blooming 5 days before we came. To see the cherries still blooming when we were there, was a lucky day for us. Indeed, we actually saw the black and white magpies a few times at Yeouido, which are known in Korea as the bird that brings good luck.

We started our tour of Yeouido Park from Yeouinaru Station at 9 am. It was cool and sunny, and a great day for a stroll. We admired the pink canopy of sakuras all the way to the National Assembly. There are many sakura trees in Seoul, but here in Yeouido Park, there must have been a thousand. We felt like we could walk forever, strolling tirelessly with the Han River flanking on one side and the commercial Seoul skyline on the other.

Words just cannot describe how wonderful and serene we felt. We love the weather, the trees, the crowd, the couples, the school children, the performers and the stall vendors. It was marvelous when an unknown group of locals wanted to immersed themselves with us in a group photo. If there is paradise on earth, we may have got a glimpse of it right here in Yeouido Park.

With many theme-based sections, this park has so much to see. And while you're in each section you'll feel secluded enough like you're in a separate park each time. We went walking through the park from 9 - 11pm and it was wonderous. The night time views were magical as we ended by the river front. It felt extremely safe late on a Saturday night and lots of people were still out and about, even after midnight when we made our way back to our guesthouse via subway which closes by midnight. This midnight park visit was really a gem from my first visit to Seoul.

You can find the I Seoul U sign here. It's in the middle of an open area so it's not hard to miss. And, it's right by the river, so you get an amazing view of the water and of Seoul! Also, there are grassy areas to lay in and benches to sit on to enjoy the view.

Not just my favorite park in Seoul, but my all time favorite. Better than Golden Gate Park in San Francisco (though it is much bigger). And New York Central Park can't even compare. I say this mainly because this park is keep very clean and in great condition. Lots of beautiful views and connecting to Han Park as well.

April is the best time because of the cheery blossom trees blooming. The last time we were here, it was April, but really crowded because everyone else wants to come see the beautiful views. It is also a time of year when it is not hot and humid.

There are places along the way where you can buy some drinks and snacks, and you will see many people on rented bicycles. Some locals bring their bikes. We have never seemed to have trouble parking. There is a fee in most areas at the park, but I consider it cheap.

Just plain to spend a whole day there and have a picnic.

We specifically chose to visit Korea in the spring so we could catch the famous cherry blossoms in their full splendor, a decision that paid amazing dividends.
With our son and daughter-in-law living in Korea, we were fortunate to have the best guides show us the best things Korea has to offer. We made it a whole day event, and luckily, we had the best weather for a long and pleasant walk through the park. The welcoming scenery was incredible! We've seen Washington DC during the cherry blossom season, and although it is a experience to cherish, Yeouido Park will by far always be second to none. What a magnificent site! We got there during the peak time and every tree and every bush was covered in blossoms. Pinks galore, whites and other colors were a true feast for our eyes. We chose to get a map, which you can pick up at the entrance, so we could find our way around. It was so wonderful to see how Koreans truly make use of such a stunning facility, we saw hundreds of local residents in sports attire taking to the numerous trails around the park. They obviously love to hike and enjoy the outdoor, and th. Are with which park official manage the park ought to be applauded. The park is very clean, it's kept in the most amazing condition, there are all kind of facilities throughout, clean restrooms in multiple spots, and even food stands to pick up light snacks.
This was truly a wonderful day and the experience will last a life time. Beautiful park! We went in April, so be sure to take a light jacket or sweater, temperature can change rather quickly, so be pr pared. There are excellent sidewalks and flat parkways for parents pushing strollers, this is a great choice for families to visit. The park is huge!
