This relatively new park, a 15-minute walk from Ttukseom station (don’t get off at Ttukseom Resort station!), is a very pleasant area to enjoy some time in natural surroundings. It’s large, so it’s best to hire a bicycle or rollerblades from the rental stall (open from 9am to 10pm) located by Gate 1. Lockers cost W500. The park used to be a hunting ground in Joseon times, then became a horse-­racing track and sports fields, but is now a regenerating forest. Among the trees and lakes are deer enclosures, eco areas, an insect exhibition, a plant nursery, a Lotteria overlooking a pond and fountains that shoot up from the ground, which kids love playing in. You can also cycle through a tunnel down to the Han River and along the cycleway that follows the river in both directions.
