Early spring visit, where trees and flowers just started to blossom. This is one of the best parks I've ever visited. Fresh air and cool breeze! I call it Forest in the middle of the city. 😍😍

It’s still pretty cold in Seoul and the park was full of dead trees and grass. The winter chill has prevented anything from growing and no one but a few elderly were walking in the park. I trust the reviews of my fellow TripAdvisor users...More

If you're staying somewhere along Apkujung or Cheongdam, this park is just across the river on Seong-su bridge. Nice place to go for a run.

We enjoy walking in city parks and this one has sculptures, a deer consul, insect and butterfly gardens (although the latter sections are bare bones in October.) If you have children, there are some good play structures, slides and lots of free space to run...More

This park is well managed and a great place to enjoy autumn of South Korea. If you want a silence from the busy city of Seoul, this place is where you should be. Check out pork BBQ shops nearby as well.

I really wanted to see a deer as I've never encountered one before. I went to the park and the weather was perfect. There were also children on a trip the day I visited. We fed the deer via a vending machine that sold food...More

This is a park and not really a forest as the name suggested. There are many areas to sit around and have picnic, This is a park where locals will go and have their week end family picnic or gathering. Nothing much for the tourists.
