Northern Seoul's Dream Forest

It's Children's day today in Korea and since I have a niece, my sister and I decided to take Chloe to the Dream Forest located near out house... just a 15-minute walk. Dream Forest, a massive green park located in northern Seoul, is the 4th largest park in the city before Seoul Forest, Olympic Park, and World Cup Park.

The main entrance

Visitors will find that the landscaping works, such as Wolyeongji (Moon Reflecting Pond) and the Wolgwang Falls (Moonlight Falls), were designed after traditional architecture of Korea. At the top of the 49.7m tall observatory.  Dream Forest Arts Center, Concert Hall, Dream Forest Museum of Art, Restaurants, are all conveniently located within the park, making Dream Forest one of the most accessible cultural venues in Seoul.

I guess since it was a holiday, there were so many people and children around and some events were also held. We only stayed in the forest for 1 hour but Chloe sure had fun walking around the grasses, seeing so many children, and enjoying the scenery.
