Unjeong Lake Park
Unjeong Lake Park is one of the great unheralded parks in Korea. The city of Paju has recently invested heavily in developing its parks and recreation, and Unjeong Lake Park has benefitted nicely. The park is quite big. There are enough areas of the park to allow for a large number of visitors while at the same time allowing all of its visitors to enjoy a sense of personal space and privacy.
The Scouting Report
Unjeong Lake Park, formerly known as Gaon Lake Park, is not a "sports" park. It is an R & R kind of park. If you are looking for a place to rest and relax, Unjeong Lake Park is one of the best places you'll find in the area.
The park actually contains two lakes. With each lake having walking paths that lead around them, there is no shortage of good scenery. As such, it is one of the finer places to visit if you are wanting to enjoy a relaxing picnic in Paju.
Enjoy the small but scenic lakes at this popular park in Paju---there are two of them. Bring food and spend a few hours outside. You won't regret it.
If you want to find a place to play sports in Unjeong, you might find what you are looking for at Unjeong Lake Park. Across the main road from the lake, there are a few futsal fields that double as basketball courts. The fields aren't ideal for basketball, but at least there are goals to shoot on.
The park is a great place for easy cycling. An excellent path loops around the lakes and is very scenic. It is not strenuous at all. Bring your significant other to the park and enjoy an afternoon of biking around the lake.
The old section of the park, Ubi Park, has been around a few years longer than the newer section. There is a small exhibition hall which hosts events on occasion. There are also a few places to grab a bite to eat or a drink at Ubi Park's exhibition hall.
