Introduction

"Located in the middle of Yanghwadaegyo Bridge, Seonyudo Park is the first ecological water park in Korea, repurposing a former water purification plant.

Built on area of 114,000㎡, the park consists of Water Purifying Botanical Garden, Aquatic Botanical Garden, an eco-friendly water playground, and more attractions where visitors can appreciate various aquatic plants and an ecological forest. There are also various things to see and areas to take a rest in the park, offering a great chance for visitors to learn about the ecosystem and to experience nature.

A pedestrian bridge connecting Seonyudo Island to the Yanghwa area is an ideal place to enjoy the beautiful views of the Hangang River, including the World Cup Fountain and World Cup Park. With colorful lights, the area is gaining popularity as a tourist spot to enjoy the nightscape near the Hangang River. An exhibition hall in the park displays photos of the Hangang River and has various convenient facilities including a computer room and restrooms.
