Mullae Neighborhood Park
Immediately outside of Mullae Station on line 2 is Mullae Neighborhood Park. It's not a place you would want to spend a day or even an entire afternoon. However, it's a nice spot to go for a stroll, have a quick picnic, play badminton, or if you're up for it, play the East Asian version of croquet, GATEBALL! (What is gateball?)
