Haneul Park, Seoul

4.5
#13 of 57 in Parks in Seoul
Part of a larger site built to commemorate the 17th FIFA World Cup, the lofty Haneul Park affords panoramic views of the site and mountains beyond. The park was actually built on a 15-year-old landfill site, which held 92 million tons of garbage. Haneul Park was built on the highest mountain of trash, which has been utterly transformed into a verdant hill, covered in various trees and flowering shrubs and grasses. Check out the various viewing platforms as you take the walkway to the top of the hill, and look out for the five wind-powered generators that feed the park its energy.

  • Lovely park that was created on a landfill. I went there on a national holiday together with relatives. This is a popular spot for families and tourists alike. It's also a good spot for taking pictures with the various types of flower fields that were planted here.
  • Haneul Park is the most popular of the five parks situated in World Cup Park. "Haneul" actually translates to sky since it is situated on the highest part of World Cup Park. Silver grass (a.k.a. eulalia grass/ cogon grass) is a must-visit place! Climb up a 291-step stairway or take a ride on the park's electric car (it costs 2,000 won and 1,500 for kids). It's right on top of Haneul Park, it offers breathtaking views of Seoul including the Han River (Hangang river)✨
  • Beautiful in autumn with eulalia... If going there with kids, best to get the tram ride at the bottom of the hill
  • Beautiful silver grass, river and mountain view for those that are able to make the hike to the scenic top
  • Very pretty place for photo taking and nice view up here. However do note that there’s quite an amount of stairs to climb if you’re not going from the slope.
