Yuldong Park
Open Spaces and Fields

Yuldong Park is an excellent recreational area surrounded by hills and consisting mostly of a lake. With these geographical elements, it one would think it is a bit hard to also include any sort of open space. However, those looking for an open field near Bundang are in luck. It may be a small field, but it is a field nonetheless---perfect for small-scale sports and/or a nice pleasant picnic.


The Scouting Report

Yuldong Park in Bundang does not bill itself as a place in which you can spread out and have lots of room to yourself. That is not the primary reason you should visit this wonderfully scenic park. However, at one end of the park's lake, there is a small grassy field that does provide just that thing for those visitors who insist on enjoying open space in a confined park. So while this plot of land is suitable for enjoying a bit of space, it is not ideal.

One thing this park does have is a relatively large paved area. The paved area is adjacent to the grassy field. The two spots together make for a popular place to relax and have fun--especially for the younger ones. The grassy field provides a place to run around without worrying about falling down and getting hurt. The pavement provides a place to ride bicycles, which can be rented from across the street.
