There are plenty of places to visit and sights to see when you are in Seoul. But when you are visiting with family sometimes you want a slow day where the children can play to their hearts’ content and the adults can sit back and relax. Time to head to a park.

1. Hangang Park
The quintessential park experience in Korea is by the Han river. It has become very commercialized but if you haven’t been there before, check it out.

2. Seoul Children’s Park
If you are staying at a hotel near Myeongdong station you can take the subway to visit Seoul Children’s Park which is not just for children but for adults as well.

3. Haneul Park
If you are looking for a park with unusual walking trails Haneul Park is the place to go. There are windmills, wooden swing benches and a dome-shaped observatory. It is a famous feature in Korean dramas and would be highly recommended by hotels like Travelodge Myeongdong Euljiro.

4. Songdo Central Park
Songdo Central Park is where you can get involved in water activities, visit a deer farm, the rabbit island and plenty of space for picnics.

5. Seoul Forest
Seoul Forest is full of decorative flower beds, themed flower gardens, a skate park and plenty of walking and cycling trails.
