Yuseong Hot Spring Park is a popular destination in South Korea for relaxation and natural beauty.
Located in Daejeon City, the park offers visitors a chance to soak in hot springs surrounded by lush greenery and local wildlife.
The area also features an onsen, or traditional Japanese bathhouse, where visitors can enjoy the therapeutic benefits of hot springs. Guests can also explore nearby walking trails or take a boat ride down the river that runs through the park.
Yuseong Hot Spring Park is the perfect spot to relax and take in the beautiful Korean landscape.
Located in Daegu, South Korea, it is the oldest hot spring park in the country. The park is home to various amenities and activities, including hot springs, a swimming pool, jogging paths, and more.
Visitors can also explore traditional Korean temples, enjoy recreational activities such as mini golfing or ride a ferryboat at the nearby river. With its unique combination of nature and culture, Yuseong Hot Spring Park is sure to make your visit unforgettable!
Yuseong Hot Spring Park is at the heart of Daejeon City in Yuseong District. The hot spring of Yuseong is its most priced attractions since many years ago.
If you are already in town, you may stroll around for an hour to see which facility is enjoyable. You won't regret it, I should say!
Some of the worth seeing facilities are the light square (better at night), children's fresh pools, grass garden, fountain areas, hot spring foot bath, and flower gardens.
Let me describe a bit and with photos below...
I could only imagine the colorful spotlights and the reflections during evening and night time at this square.
You can either stand or sit down on the bench nearby while watching the harmonious dance between the lights and the fountain.
Children's Pool and Fountains
I was attracted to the noise ahead made by the excited children playing in the shallow pools. It was summer, and so it must be the solution to bit the heat in Daejeon.
As you can see (in the photo), children were accompanied by adults or parents. Tents and shades are obviously allowed in the area. Large parasols offer enough shades to parents waiting and watching patiently their excited kids playing in the pool.
Yes! It seems to be that this whole facility is a garden in the middle of the city. Green grasses, shrubs, and tress are the soothing sights you will encounter in the middle of the concrete structures and busy roads.
There are two fountain areas in the park, but they were turned off at that time. The area looks very serene and peaceful. You can sit here for a while to relax in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city.
This facility was my original destination, while the rest of the park's facilities were secondary!
That's because I was wondering if the hot spring was real. Yes, it exists, and people are enjoying its usefulness.
In fact, it is one of the most popular places in town. Visitors and locals enjoy the shallow spring foot spa facility. You are required to wash up your feet first before getting inside the facility.
Here are the healing effects of foot spa as described:
It alleviates pains due to cardiovascular diseases because the hot spring (and its elements) help improve blood circulation and activates the capillaries of your feet.
Second, by increasing your metabolism, the Yuseong hot spring spa will help release salinity and wastes from your feet and also causes to lower down serum cholesterol.
Third, it will help you concentrate and relieve stress, thus promoting a healthy body and soul.
Last, the warm temperature can normalize your body temperature and physiological functions.
100% natural hot spring water!
7:00 to 10:00PM on Summer
7:00 to 09:00PM on Winter
I was lucky that the summer flowers were blooming. Yes, they are mostly tropical flowers and are lovely to look at and take photos as well. Couples and anybody take pictures with the facilities in this garden area.
Doodeurim Theater (Round-shaped Structure)
I suppose any kind of shows and public entertainments are being held here. It could also serve as a shade during the hot summer or when it rains.
You can easily find restaurants, convenience stores, and various shops in the area.
Yuseong Subway Station is a few minutes away from Yuseong Hot Spring Park. Buses and taxis are accessible as well.
