  • From Seoul Station about 30 minutes by Metro. In the large park, amusement park, Zoo, botanical garden and Museum of art. In one day all around and was going, but when it comes to imagine more peaceful first surprised. I first went to the Zoo, but ended up only in the Zoo one day I spent. The Park had many animals. The restaurant was simple. A simple dish such as naengmyeon and bibimbap. Was during the week, but was quite crowded. Few foreign tourists, often were South Koreans.

  • Composed of a zoo, theme park and garden... If your into hiking or outdoors activities, this is a nice place... If you just want to hangout and relax, it has many picnic areas. If your on the budget, not going to any of the attractions is free. The only expense you will have is transportation costs which is cheap. It has a big lake in the middle with nice views... Also has two ski lifts
  • For something called 'Seoul Grand Park' it seems like there should be more to it - a center of the city, community gathering and play and exercise space - that cities like New York have with Central Park. This park is way out of the city, and is mainly notable for the attractions it has in it: the big zoo, a children's zoo, an art museum, an amusement park, an indoor children's play area, and gondolas that take you over the lake and to the zoo. There are also trails around the valley, and it is quite beautiful. In the end, it is more of a destination park than a lifestyle park, but definitely worth a visit.
  • One of the largest arguments used to support keeping wild animals like dolphins and whales in captivity is the fact that they would never be able to survive in the wild after life in a tank. Sambal was illegally captured along with three other dolphins for display at Jeju’s Pacific Land theme park and the Grand Seoul Zoo in South Korea. Nearly three years later and Sambal is thriving in her wild home! She was recently spotted off the coast of South Korea with a healthy calf in toe!
  • My kids enjoyed this place very much. Zoo full of exitment
  • I think it is real zoo. It is peaceful and you can relax here. But don't go greenhouse inside in summer. It is so smelly.
