We went as a way to fill a spate day in the city. Yes it is free, but from Seoul station it's a long metro ride with many changes. We got there and the animals were all in tiny enclosures with visable signs of distress. Most animals clearly looked unhealthy with fur missing, sores on their skin or visable infections. The animals had little or no water, Was disgusting and we left.
Armament park wasn't open.
Give it a miss!

The amusement center in the park is closed for renovation, should be closed for another 6 more months at least by the looks of it.

The kids play facilities are quite decently maintained considering its free.

Zoo have quite fair variety of animals on display.

Worth a visit if there is a spare slot in your time schedule.

My niece was so excited when visiting this park. She could see, touch and play with animals in a huge space. There are some that she had never experienced, such as Camel Riding. It should be one of the most memorable in her childhood.

From the subway station exit, the main entrance to this park is just a short walk away. Entrance is free.
Even before entering the park, you will be immediately amazed by wonderful flowers on the way to its entrance gate.
There were lots of school children when we went here but it did not feel crowded at all owing to the park's large space.
The zoo was great. It had a lot of animals.
The restaurants' food were ok and reasonably priced.

This park has a lot to see and do. There is a zoo, amusement rides, and botanical gardens. There is also a children's museum on the grounds. It is definitely geared towards the younger kids but there is plenty to see and do for all ages~~
