  • great zoo in summer very big takes all day to see wonderful dolphin show but make sure to get there before 3 pm or you will miss it cheap to enter sky lift very cool but you have to pay for that all k...  more »
  • To see the animals often goes. The price is also nice and is well managed. Prices, congestion, in all aspects, such as the State of the animals near Everland is better than Safari.

  • 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.
