Let me describe briefly the amusement resources you can find at Seoul Grand Park below.

Features of Facilities

As a 'grand' park, Seoul Grand Park offers various entertainment and relaxing services and facilities amidst the daily toils of busy people in Seoul and neighboring areas.

The Zoo
This Seoul Zoo aims to provide a livable place and environment for animals from around the world of various species.

The Seoul Zoo does not only do it for a show but also to conserve and research the rare and endangered animals and help educate the public about them.

Theme Garden
Theme Garden is one of the most exciting parts of the Park. It is most attractive during the Spring and Summer seasons. You will see a myriad of roses at its Rose Garden.

Besides the Rose Garden and seasonal plants and flowers, children can also have fun at a Children's Zoo nearby. You can take part in any special events during the warmer seasons of the year.

Healing Site
This healing place is a forested area located at the foot of Cheonggyesan Mountain. The verdant mountain cloaked with pine and other tree species envelops that border of Seoul Grand Park.

The Healing Site offers 'healing' gardens and zones, including the Forest Pathway, Water, Wind and Sunshine Zone, Barefoot Road, Aroma Garden, and Forest Plaza.

Forest Walkway
The Forest Walkway is a strolling pathway lined with beautiful trees of various species.

The trees compose the lush forest that is home to all living creatures that roam within, including squirrels, raccoons, birds, bats, rabbits, wild boars, and more.

The Forest Walkway stretches around 8 kilometers and is composed of 4 sections. The shortest section takes 30 minutes to accomplish while the full one needs 3 hours to complete (it could be faster if you walk quicker, though!)

Seoul Grand Park has a friendly space for campers. You can enjoy camping, picnicking, and have fun with your friends or family through any activity you want to hold.

The Park opens its camping ground from March to November except for days with bad weather. You can enjoy its facilities at this campsite, including the volleyball court, basketball court, washroom and shower facilities, snack food shop, among others.

Above all, as this article is more on the Park's Botanical Garden, let me describe some of its features.
