Description
korea apartment
Yeouido Park is a huge park created to provide recreation, located on Yeouido Island at the center of Seoul.  Originally the spot was covered with black asphalt, and people frequented the place for bicycling and rollar skating.  The construction to make it a green area began in 1997, and opened officially in February 1999.  it is now the place where many city people come to rest and enjoy strolling around, play sports, and cultural events. The park is divided into theme-based sections: Traditional Korean Forest, Grass Square, Culture Square, and Nature's Ecosystem Forest.  In Traditional Korean Forest, only traditional Korean trees are planted, and it has a pond and an octagonal pavilion, with a trail walk that completes the feel of an elegant Korean garden.  Grass Square has a low hill, with grass field and trail roads, and nearby there are evergreens and deciduous trees to show the changing seasons.  Many performances and events are held at the Cultural Square, and because there are many zelkova trees lined up nearby, it is a great place for people to come and rest. An especially beloved part of the park is the Nature's Ecosystem Forest ? it is where you can observe nature and learn from an ecologically sensitive pond and forest, right in the middle of the city. Composed of a swamp area, waterline area, grassland area, and a forest, you can observe various kinds of life forms living in these areas.
One of the must-see areas when you are visiting Yeouido Park is the Yunjunro Street, behind the National Assembly Building.  This place is famous for being the loveliest cherry blossom street in Seoul.  Cherry blossom trees, 30 to 40 years old, line up for about 6 km, and is a very popular spot in the spring.
