Quite a Climb

Basically is an island with sea of green. Good for hiking / walk around the island. Very peaceful and good environment with fresh air. Alternatively, you can hop on to the Danburi train that will bring you to each attractive place among the island.

We took a cab to the north gate, walked up the hill in this park to the tower, pavilion, flower clock and bell tower. Its still a worthwhile park to get away from the crowd in the city despite the presence of many Chinese tourists and some Falungang protestors. The flower clock is disappontingly small though. The escalators from this... More

A good place to visit to get nice views of Busan. Not much of a park but nice place to just sit and chill and enjoy the view. There is a tower that you can visit for a fee. The small park has a bell pavilion, a statue of an admiral and a flower clock. The escalator is towards the... More

To get away from the rush of busy and sometimes hectic Busan simply take a taxi to this wonderful park. It is kept immaculate. Really a place to relax and clear your head. Plus you get sights of Busan to be remembered. The park entrance is free, however there is a fee to climb on the top of the tower.... More

The stairs to the park is too steep but escalator is functional on my day of visit. We reach there late evening around 4 or 5 so we didn't went up the Busan Tower. The park is well kept and very nice for evening walk / exercising. After sightseeing, you need to walk down the stairs. You can continue with... More

After hours and hours wandering around BIFF Square and Gwangbokro Fashion and Culture Street in search of the entrance to the park, my boyfriend and I finally stumbled upon it sandwiched between two buildings. The escalators weren't working at the time, so it was up the stairs we went! It was quite a trek, but the views at the top... More

It is a marvel how such a park can be nestled so near to the bustling shopping district at BIFF. This is my second visit, this time round we went to the park from a different entrance as we explored the 40 steps culture street. From the other entrance you would have to climb steps to get up to the... More

The park is too steep for ols folk. Our tourguide van were parked at the foothill and my mum gave up half way walking up the hill. When reached, we saw busses were parked up the hill. Then we realized only certain vehicles are allowed to go up hill. So if travelling with elderly, try ask permission at guard house... More

I visited Yongdusan park on 22 May 2016, which coincided with the 12th Busan international dance festival. Really hype festive mood! Strongly recommended to visit in late Spring period.
