Yeouido Park (not to be confused with Yeouido Hangang River Park), is a little inland from the Han River and is an ecological refuge within this urban jungle. There are swamps, forests, grass fields and many trails that cut through each area to get you connected back to nature. Many local office workers stop by Yeouido Park during their lunch breaks to get some fresh air and to recharge. Couples can be found walking hand-in-hand, and you’ll find inline skaters cruising through at a leisurely speed. It’s one of the greenest spaces in all of Seoul, and it’s the perfect place to go for some greenery that’s right in the middle of the city.
This is also one of the best places to come for the Cherry Blossom Festival in Seoul.
