Geumhak Ecological Park

  • Opne hoursOpen year-round


In front of the Geumhak-dong Community Center, there is a signpost depicting a family of bears that marks the entrance to an ecological park. There is a wetland below the parking lot of the park and two catchment basins above. There is a small outdoor stage near the parking lot serving as a venue for diverse cultural events and performances. From the observatory situated near the basins, you can take a look at Jumisan Mountain, which is reminiscent of an Eastern painting with a harmonious blend of mountains and waters. We also recommend visitors to go trekking on the Gongjudaegan Mountain Range between Duribong Peak and Bonghwadae Beacon Mound.
※ Tip: Geumhak Ecological Park is a relaxing area surrounded by a splendid natural environment, crystal clear waters, ecological wetlands, ecological observation facilities, hiking trails and an outdoor performance stage. It is expected to attract even more visitors after 2015 with the establishment of the wood experience center, recreational forest and botanical garden.
