Nothing very special with this place but just quiet and small park with some history in it. Worth to visit in case you are near by chance.

This park was near where we stayed and also not too far from jongmyo shrine. We walked here during our walkabout of the Jogno neighbourhood. There is a pagoda and monument here. It is just a small park.

It was a very small park. Good for resting tired feet and toilet break. The most significant artifact is the old pagoda. Very well preserved.
