“If you're coming here, you must go UP the Busan Tower for the View!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a park where there is a building tower that you can take an elevator to go up to the top to see a panoramic view of the entire city. Pretty high (but not high enough that I got uncomfortable. Don’t like heights too much. ) If you are going to this place, you must go up the tower to see the view!

If I’m not mistaken it’s around 4000 W (or $4USD). Some interesting places in the park. Not that much, however.

Near it is a bridge with a lot of padlocks of sweethearts. It’s similar to some other European bridges. The padlocks are attached to the bridge to show or wish for unbreakable love. Keys are then thrown. (At least that’s what they do in Europe.) However, I’ve never seen a bridge like this in Europe. This is jam packed with padlocks!

“Busan Tower”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Visit here and go the top of Busan tower. You can get a pretty good view of the whole city that might help you get your bearings when you're exploring.

“바둑 Baduk and 장기 Janggi Played Here”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

The elders play these two games around the benches at the top of the hill and seem to be very competitive, but friendly, when playing. Baduk is the same as the game "Go" and Janggi is "Korean Chess". The statues of Admiral Yi and the dragon are impressive. There are also several areas for sweethearts to congregate and the views of the city are nice. Take the escalator up and walk one of the paths down to truly appreciate the area.

“Best views over Busan”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This park is located centrally and is an easy walk within town. From the back (brown street signs indicate direction), follow the wandering paths up through the trees to the top. From the front (city center), take the escalator to the top. Although there is a tower with a fee (about $4 US) to an observation area, the regular platform at the top of the park gives great views and lots of photo opportunities. Be aware that the escalator only goes up, so the descent involves a long stretch of stairs that may be a challenge for mobility impaired visitors. Of course, a taxi also is an alternative. The park appears safe.

The park features a huge ceremonial bell in a gazebo; unfortunately, it is not possible to swing the timber and ring the bell. Great place to take a photo. The week we visited for the second time, they were preparing for a festival, featuring lighted larger-than-life figures of people from an earlier time.

Tip #1: Up the stairs from the gift shop by the tower, there are very clean, free rest rooms - better than those just out in the park.
Tip #2: For navigation, note the large statue of a historical figure: his nose points at the entrance to the escalator going down.

“Must-see park”

This park is situated just off the main shopping street . A lovely oasis with walks , interesting statues and temple. Celebrations were under way for Buddhas birthday with music and many lanterns put up for the 17th may. Panoramic views of Busan. There are areas in the park with outdoor exercise equipment .
