    Don't forgot to bring your picnic
    Visiting Seoul Forest did not disappoint, the tulips were in flower, it was such a pretty destination, my only mistake was that we did not know to bring your own food and drink, I expected there to be vendors inside the forest. So my only advice is to make sure you bring a picnic so that you can take as long as you like exploring these extensive grounds. Regardless, I am so pleased we ventured out to the forest, saw the beautiful tulips, water features, outdoor art and natural space in this large city.

    We wanted to go out of city to witness the fall foliage but didn’t have the time and energy. So we went here instead. Came around 10 to 12-ish and the park was not yet crowded. You will still find little spots that is quiet despite the busyness of everyone wanting to see the leaves. What I like about this is you can tie it up with a trip to hip Seongsu with lots of cafes. Had we gone to Nami or elsewhere out of town, we would not be able to pick our lunch and would have been forced to eat in a tourist trap. And oh, as in pretty much all of Seoul, easy subway ride.

    Deers
    Went to see the Sika Deers… funny thing when asking local’s about the park and deers, the response 100% of the time was that there are none…well I have the pictures to prove them wrong:). Beautiful park in the snow, kids enjoyed themselves pelting their parents (me in particular ) with snowballs. There’s also bunnies to see.

As the name suggests, this is a lovely green area near Han River.

Trees, flowers, play areas and wide open sauces are plentiful and there are lots of great food and beverage options surrounding the forest.

Free to enter.

It's alright, a quiet place to get away from the busy city. The kids seemed to love the water feature. We preferred Namsan park - get the cable car to the top and walk down. The walk down is amazing. I think there are two walks down - one has stairs and one doesn't.

Beautiful park with several different areas - my favourites were the bee garden and butterflies greenhouse, but just wandering around is great.

Nice for a rest
to get the local flavour
not many tourists mostly local
it is my fault for not walking very far in .. but the impression I had the moment I walked in was that the fringe was more of the Seoul forest … I came in after visiting the cafes at Seongsu and was
Probably quite full … sat next to some local Korean housewives and sketched

Grab a coffee on the way into the park and stroll around the various sites. There are flower gardens, sculptures, and places to exercise.

If you want to experience a genuine local daily break, I'd suggest trying to go to Seoul Forest. These days, the tulips are in bloom, and There are a variety of trees and plants. When the weather is clear, you can see the reflection of trees and buildings on the lake. Seoul Forest also has a large park which is a great place for families or friends to take a walk. What's more, there are many delicious restaurants and cafes around Seoul Forest. I think it's well worth a visit if you want to take a break in the city.
