Han River Park
Only a 15-minute walk away from the COEX complex, the Jamsil Han River Park is located on the south side of the Han River between the Jamsil Rail Bridge and the Yeongdong Bridge. With the Jamsil Sports Complex, Lotte World, and Olympic Park in the vicinity, it’s quite convenient to use the sports and cultural facilities located inside the park. And with wildflowers, farms, and other natural learning areas inside the park, there are plenty of options for an educational field trip for kids or outing with your family.In particular, the Jamsil “Sujungbo” waterway for fish is a chance to see the Han River ecosystem in action, and you can also take part in ecological programs. Aquatic plants that serve as a shelter for fish around the waterway, pinwheels spinning in the wind, and walking paths are some of the main attractions at the park. For an impressive night view of Seoul, go to the Riverview Bom café and observatory on Jamsil Bridge or take the Nue Naru cruise ship.
