Marronnier Park has at its center a
symbolic marronnier (horse chestnut) tree, and all kinds of outdoor
cultural event centers, sculpture exhibitions, and art centers are
congregated in the area. The area began to develop in
1975 when Seoul National University was relocated away from here,
and some 50 small theaters and 500 cafes concentrated in the area
make this place a greatly beloved meeting and relaxation place for
young and old alike. The park gets especially busy on the
weekends when crowds gather to share cultural
events. Bands and singers, as well as dance groups and
comedians gather here and give on-the-spot performances.
Fortunetellers and street artists also sit here and tell your
fortunes or draw portraits of you. The park has many
trees and benches to sit and relax on, making it an ideal place for
relaxation and leisurely walks.
Marronnier Park is a part of
Daehakno, the famous street known as the 'mecca of
plays'. Beside plays, there are many cultural
performances here, and interesting restaurants and cafes that make
this place a favorite hangout destination for many young people.
