Cheonho Park

Even though Cheonho Park is a small park, do not make the mistake of underestimating it. This park in southwest Seoul makes the most of what it does have. While you probably wouldn't want to make a trip from other parts of Seoul specifically for the reason of visiting Cheonho Park, if you happen to be in the area, it is quite a pleasant spot to see.


The Scouting Report

As mentioned above, Cheonho Park is small. But like they say, "Dynamite comes in small packages." And just like dynamite, the explosiveness of Cheonho Park isn't fully realized until it's too late. Don't forsake this little bitty park. Give it a chance. Enjoy the sucka.

Cheonho Park

It's not the best spot to park a bike, but it makes for a nice picture.

Basketball

The two basketball courts in Cheonho park are in great shape. They are both "full" courts, but one is a little shorter than the other.

Although the games are uber competitive, they are a decent spot in which to find pick-up games.

The courts have all the necessary markings you could want.

Gardens and Water

Although the park isn't big, it is surprisingly scenic. A musical fountain complete with dancing water puts on a show at regular intervals throughout the day. Also, there are a few paths that loop around the park.

The park's scenery is truly rather nice and provides a nice reprieve from the din of Seoul.

The Stage

A stage in the middle of the park is a popular gathering spot for the park's visitors. It is also home to various festivals that are held throughout the year.

Meet your friends at the stage. Or, meet them elsewhere. It really doesn't matter that much.

Things to Do

Cool Down

Cheonho Park is surrounded on all sides by big-city living. All you have to do is cross the street to find a convenience store or restaurant of some kind.
