Seoul Forest Park

Seoul Forest Park is one of the best places to see plants, flowers, trees, wetlands, and glimpses of nature amid Seoul's bustling city. It is located in the Ttukseom area and accessible by subway and bus.

Citizens and local residents regularly stroll around the spaces to relax, exercise and enjoy nature's way of providing oxygen and positive energy to everything within their spaces.

Seoul Forest Park was created with four unique themes or spaces for all guests and regular visitors. These are...

  • Culture and Arts Park
  • Experience Learning Center
  • ecological Forest, and
  • Wetland Ecological Park

In addition to the grand spaces, Seoul Forest Park is accessible or in contact with the Han River, the more expansive area for all sorts of relaxation, exercise, cultural, and entertainment facilities and activities.

Seoul Forest Park is considered the first to involve people's initiative in creating and promoting plant program operations.

Seoul Forest Facilities

Since Seoul Forest is a public facility, it offers facilities accessible for free except for some items or activities the guest would procure.

So, you will find benches, tables, spaces, washrooms, potable water fountains, and such facilities found in most parks.

However, when you do more than just relaxing and spending quality time, such as anything commercial in value, you need to ask for permission.

For example, if you do any filming using the facility, you need to register in advance to ask for approval. Check out the official website to apply for any authorization for the use of the facility.
