Boramae Park

Boramae Park is an enigma. It is one of the more impressive parks in Seoul, yet it remains extremely unheralded. One of the things that makes the park so great is its X-Games section. There is a great skate park that is very popular.


The Scouting Report

Southwestern Seoul has a great place to skate and get your BMX on. Boramae Park has a great scene. It is good for a variety of skill levels. Best of all, you don't need your own equipment. An on-location shop rents equipment and gear.

The Park's Features

  • Halfpipe
  • Quarterpipes
  • Boxes
  • Kickers
  • Rails
  • Ramps

An oval skate track is next to the skate park obstacles.

The X-Games Skate Park

Prox

Great vibes. The atmosphere is awesome. Boramae Park's skating short-track, rock climbing wall, adn basketball courts surround the skate park. All the action packed so close together creates a lot of energy.

A "pro" shop is located at the entrance to the park. Bicycles and skateboards can be rented here.

Cons

There isn't much shade. There's nowhere to hide from the sun while tricking out.
