Autumn in Korea

Olympic Park in Seoul

Built for the opening of the 1986 Asian Games and 1988 Seoul Olympic Games, the Olympic Park covers an area of 1.5 million square meter with six indoor and outdoor sporting venues. Today, the park continues to be a popular place for various events and sporting activities.

Other than the sports facilities, the park is indeed a very big park. I think it takes a whole day to walk through it. The park is beautiful. The landscape is well-designed with lots of trees, grass areas covering 33,000 square meters, artificial lakes connecting the natural stream, rose garden, wildflower deck, and various jogging/walking trails. The park has a mission to become a eco-friendly one. Smoking is prohibited in the park. And you will see birds and small animals such as squirrels and rabbits around.

It is a beautiful place to visit in fall. It is very colorful with various kinds of trees and reeds along the lakes.

And the park is conveniently located in download with direct access through subway, not far away from the Lotte World.
