Unjeong Health Park
Unjeong is a "small" community that lies about an hour west of Seoul. Many of Unjeong's smaller neighborhoods have small parks. All of these small parks are marvelously woven together, eventually connecting at what is called Unjeong Health Park. At this nexus of neighborhood parks lies a wealth of athletic facilities. Unjeong Health Park has everything needed to satisfy any sports junkie.
The Scouting Report
Unjeong Health Park lies off the beaten path but is very much worth visiting. It is spacious and scenic and has a wealth of things to do. Basketball, futsal, soccer, lots of open space, and plenty of place for younger children to play....it's all in fabulous Unjeong Health Park in Paju.
Unjeong Health Park has one of the best skate parks you'll find in Paju. Rather than having separate features such as halfpipes and boxes, the park is a pool-shaped area. It's like skating in a large, shallow pool.
There are plenty of courts in Unjeong Health Park. Only one is a legitimately full court. There are other smaller courts and goals that are just as good for smaller games of ball, though.
There aren't many full-sized 400-meter tracks with easy access. However, Unjeong Health Park has a great one. It is in great condition and is a wonderful place in which to run. Make like Forrest and run, run, run.
Things to Do
There is a bathroom on site. However, the nearest convenience store or restaurant/cafe is a bit of a trek away. Be sure to pack your energy bars and fill you water bottle before heading to the park.
