Seoul Forest

Family park at the confluence of Jungnangcheon and Han rivers, ideal for picnics, stroller-friendly walks, feeding deers and rabbits, watching horses or just great fun at its playgrounds

Seoul Forest is one of my favorite places. It’s beautiful in every season of the year.

If your kids love cycling, this is just the right place. You can even rent bikes for the entire family very close to the information center.

On your way to the Deer Coral, don’t forget to stop by the Insect Garden and the cage for rabbits and the guinea pigs. The kids love to feed them with the fresh grass.

Bring along some old bread as the main lake is full of hungry fish!

Besides 4 different playgrounds (Children’s Woodland playground, Sand playground, Water playground and Environmental playground), you can stop by the sports park, watch horses at the equestrian training center, splash water in the Jumping Fountain or just have a picnic on the grass.

The cherry blossoms in the cherries alley in april are beautiful too!
