Outdoor fun Editors' Note

Suitable for jogging or other open air sports activities, Seokchon Lake Park is a favorite place of Korean office workers or young people, populating the area in the afternoon or during the weekends.

The varieties of trees and plants in the Seokchon Lake Park make it a beautiful place to admire the changing seasons. A 1500 seats outdoor theater, Seoul Norimadang, is located just west of the park, both of them offering plenty of activities for a lovely afternoon.
