Haneul Park

Are you a fan of Anne Curtis? Well, she had her pre-nup photos taken at Haneul Park with Erwan Heussaff. If you’re not a fan, then here’s the translation of the Haneul Park in English – it’s “Sky Park” 😛 This park is located within Seoul World Cup Stadium which was built for the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
Address: 487-48 Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Operating Hours: 9AM – 6PM daily
What we did:

  • Ride a multicab going up and down to the Haneul Park
  • Walk around the park
  • Visit the resting areas
  • Enjoy the sight of the Eulalias

The Eulalia

Haneul Park is popular for its grass called “Eulalia” or Silver grass. I admit that it was only when I got home from our Korea trip that I knew what they are called. We just refered to them as pretty “damo” (grass). Eulalias are everywhere in the park in different sizes and fluffiness. I mean, take a look at these photos!

Approaching the middle part of the place, you’ll find an observation platform offers a nice view of the Haneul Park. It’s made of metal and has an interesting stucture, defenitely worth visiting.
This is what you can see at the top of the observation platform. Haneul Park holds “Eulalia Festival” early October every year so this place can be very crowded at that time of the month. We went in November, so there are very few tourists. 🙂
There is a place at the end of the park where in you can take a rest or eat your snacks. It also has a nice view of Seoul and Han River. There are a total of 5 wind turbines which provides power to the park and its maintenance office.
