The Dalki Theme Park and Shop is 12,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space in Heyri Art Valley in the city of Paju in Kyungki Province, that opened on June 12th, 2004.
Invented to market fashion products, Dalki is a cartoon character inhabiting a garden with her friends. As you may know, the main character is Dalki, which means strawberry in Korean. She lives in a fruit patch with her friends; all of whom are also characterized by vegetable and fruit qualities. Dalki Theme Park is a beautiful place where these characters interact with visitors in a space for shopping, playing, eating, lounging and exhibits dealing with scale and nature. There is an outdoor garden area with natural gardening activities and giant artificial fruits and vegetables, a giant house interior (Dalki’s house) with enlarged furniture and appliances, a theater and several rooms for interactive exhibits.
After experiencing all the great inside playgrounds, exhibitions, ball pools and bouncy castles, take your time and have a cup of coffee or just spend the rest of the day wondering around the very artistic and design space of Heyri Art Valley.
Within this community, there are about 40 museums, exhibitions, concert halls and bookstores where Artists make a living by opening exhibitions, trading or selling their art.
And if you still have some force, don’t forget to stop by the Ikea importer shop located at the first floor of the main building…
