Olympic Park is the legacy of the 1988 Seoul Olympics and houses South Korea largest sports arena. It is now a place for locals to relax and unwind.

 

Olympic Park encompasses the land that was once Mongchontoseong Fortress and Mongchonhaeja (man-made lake) from the early Baekje period. The large park would take probably over 3 hours to explore and is divided into several zones, including a Leisure Sports Park, Cultural Art Park, Environmental Eco-Park and History Experience Park dedicated to the area’s rich historic heritage.

The Park includes top 9 beautiful photo-taking spots for visitors:

2.7km Golden Ginkgo Tree Road in Autumn (Oct - mid Nov)

Rows of rich yellow Ginkgo Trees lined the park's perimeter (1.4km) from Mongchontoseong Station/Olympic Park South Gate 4 to Olympic Park South Gate 1 (also referred as Olympic Park East Gate 3). The Ginkgo path stretches another 1.3km onward on the straight road beyond Olympic Park.

Olympic Park Ginkgo path is extremely popular with the locals especially when the leaves fall and covered the ground in golden yellow in autumn. It provides an unique walking experience and a hot photo-taking spot right in Seoul.
