This is a place to chill at night, sunset is beautiful, you can picnic with loved ones, have dinner on one of the boat cruises, enjoy street performances! Best of all, rent a bike and cycle along the Hangang with the locals.

Bike rental is affordable and the bikes are very new and comfortable to cycle on! One thing to remember is the river is quite long, so if you would like to complete the entire cycling route, you might want to rent the bike for one whole day, or at least 4 hours (which is still rather inexpensive), considering that you would need time to travel back to the rental shop.

If you get lost, the good news is that bikes are allowed onto metros, you can easily find the nearest metro station and take the metro back to the Yeouido station, which is only a few minutes away from the rental shop.

Bring a photo ID along, you'll need to deposit it with the rental shop and will get it back when you return the bike.

PS couples, young families and friends will definitely enjoy picnics here

Yeouido Hanggang park is one of the three popular Hangang parks along with Banpo and Jamsil. This park will be extremely crowded during the Spring Flowers Festival (early April, about 10 days) and the Firework Festival (September or October, but only a few days.) Other than that, it won't be crowded that much except weekends.

Many locals bring a tent or a mat (there are many rental places too) to the park, and drink (yes, you can drink in public in Korea) and eat fried chickens (they deliver it to you) here. (The regulation about the tent and trash is recently tightened) But, please noted that it will be almost empty during Winter and extremely cold to be here.

Visit Friday and Saturday nights(18~23), and try international cuisines from food trucks (called Toggaebi-Yasijang) Toggaebi-yasijang won't open during Winter either.

whether you like to walk, bike, skate, or run you can do all there here at the Hangang park. Amazing place to come with family or with friends. you can ride pedal boats or even have lunch or dinner in a boat. if you want to make things more romantic you can go on a dinner cruise on the Hangang. or if you just want to breathe in the fresh air and walk around you should make sure to visit the convenience store and get your self some ramen!!!

We popped by Yeouido Hangang Park on a weekday afternon in November, hoping to hire bikes to go for a trundle. Unfortunately the bike rental places were closed despite us checking the opening hours before. With cold and grey weather we walked for a short while exploring the trails in the park but it wasn't that pleasant beacuse of the poor conditions. We spent some time watching the river before calling time and heading back to the Metro. I imagine it could be very lovely in full sun, but our experience was dissapointing.

Yeouido Hangang Park is located on the huge Yeouido Island, home to Seoul’s main financial district. This is a huge, popular park on the river featuring scenic views and my family and I were here on a sunny Friday late morning during autumn. While the park attracts scores of locals and tourists for the annual Yeouido Spring Flower Festival displaying the beautiful cherry blossoms, I found that Hangang Park also held its own wonderful stage during autumn.

Getting there: We were at Hangang Park once we came out of Exit 3 or Exit 2 of the Yeouinaru Station (Subway Line 5). It is that accessible. As a public park, there is no entrance fee. And once out of Exit 2, walking on the huge open space toward the river brought us to the 3 words “I SEOUL U”.

The Park (Attraction): Besides walking (as most people do), cycling is a faster and flexible way to experience the beauty of the Han River, the 3 bridges – Wonhyo, Mapo, and Seogang – that link Yeouido Hangang Park with the north of Han River, surrounding landmarks and the seasonal flora (for us it was the brilliant autumn hues of red, orange and yellow).

We rented two bicycles at a bicycle rental kiosk that is about 4 minutes’ walk from Exit 2. It opened at 9 am and charged affordable rates of ₩ 3,000 for single bike per hour with ₩ 500 every 15 minutes thereafter and ₩ 6,000 per hour for tandem (couple) bicycle followed by ₩ 1,000 every 15 minutes thereafter.

While the 16 km route round the Yeouido Island takes about 2 hours, we spent 2 hours on a ride-rest-take photographs route that took us west past Mapo Bridge and Seogang Bridge to the westernmost part of the Park or Island and then back again all the way to just before Wonhyo Bridge. At the westernmost part, you could look across and see the Dangsan Railroad Bridge, Yanghwa Bridge and the Jeoldusan (“hill of severed heads”) Matyrs’ Shrine at Jamdubong Peak.

We enjoyed the wide cycling pathway or track along the promenade, and these tracks transforms into huge spaces when cyclists and pedestrians share the activities. One classic space contains the 3 words “I SEOUL U” after a short walk from Exit 2 of Yeouinaru Station. To me, what’s more enjoyable were taking in the contrasting yet fabulous views on either side of the Han River. Within the Park are some of the famous glassy skyscrapers in the financial district - we saw the LG Twin Towers, Conrad Hotel and the under construction maroon-lined Parc 1 Tower A and Tower B (when completed, Tower A at 333 metres will become South Korea’s 5th tallest building) and of course the 63 Building (the world’s largest gold-cladded building).
The other side of Han River is more densely populated and there are countless buildings. What stood out from the clutter is the N Seoul Tower on top of the hill. And along the Han River, there’s the Floating Stage which hold concerts, outdoor performances and night movies.

We then bought lunch from Lotteria (one of the several floating restaurants) and ate it at one of the unique “springy” benches in the Park – really relaxing! After that, we recced the Park for direction to the Eland Cruise terminal so we would not be lost when we came back later in the night.

Nevertheless, it was the first time that my family and I did cycling on our Seoul vacation. We enjoyed the exercise and the sightseeing especially along the beautiful Han River without the weekend crowd. I recommend cycling for a unique experience, otherwise walking is just as enjoyable for those who cannot cycle.

Legit, one of the best places to stop - wish we had done it earlier in our trip. There's a guy who rents tents out to people, the little ajummas are basically waiting for you to come out of the subway so they can sell you delicious fried chicken, beer, soju, maekgoli, or tteokbokki... bring your appetite! We got some drinks, walked down toward the Han River and just picked a spot to watch people. Young, old - everyone was out in the sun and it was a great time outside the hustle of all the markets and sight-seeing.

You can have a really good time here with your friend and spend quality time together. You can have a picnic with bringing your own food or just buy in the stores that provided in this place. You can also rent bike and this place is where the firework festival event for every year.

My boyfriend and I hired two shopper bikes in Yeouido park. We headed off along Mokpo bridge, along the other side of the river and back across Yanghwa bridge, then back down to the park along the under-road cycle highways. It was a fantastic experience and we really enjoyed the privacy of the cycle highways along with being able to test the outdoor gyms that were dotted along the route. The park itself is lovely apart from the hawkers...the old women shoving flyers for fried chicken in our faces...however you can avoid them once on the actual bikes. The rental was cheap and the bikes worked, that is all I can ask for.

The place actually made me feel Happy! Made me feel peaceful , thankful and filled with emotions.
Guess it is easily confused with Yeouido Park or Hangang Park. Look for Conrad hotel and youll know this is the one.
The pictures I’ve seen here do not make justice.
You have families and young couples or friends relaxing over the day with their tents , you have young talented singers doing an amazing job.
The sunset really changes the vibe and best to observe it is while riding a bike around the place
