Seoul Forest is a very large park and immensely popular with the locals for its cherry blossoms in Spring and Ginkgo Tree Forest in Autumn.

Seoul Forest has gone through a number of transition from hunting grounds for the kings to the first water treatment facility in Seoul, horse racing tracks, golf course, sports park and to the present eco-friendly city park.

SPRING Highlights - Cherry Blossoms

Compared to the more well-known Yeouido Spring Flower Festival and Seokchon Lake Cherry Blossom Festival packed with visitors, cherry blossoms viewing at Seoul Forest is more relax and fun.

AUTUMN Highlights - Ginkgo Tree Forest

Autumn foliage can be enjoyed around the park. Ginkgo Tree Forest is probably the favourite for many. Tall, thick and yellow ginkgo trees lined the path, creating a beautiful sight that you want to capture in photos!
