Pine Tree Garden: A Harmony of Different Pine Trees and Rocks
  • At the highest area of Hwadam Botanic Garden grow some 1,300 pine trees of different speices, including straight Geumgang pines, red pines, beautiful Haesong pines and Yuksong pines are together with rocks, forming a wonderful garden.

    Evergreen pine trees have long been loved by Koreans because of the changeless green energy and resisntace to the freezing cold winter.

  • That is why the trees always appear in traditional Korean landscape paintings. From the Pine Tree Garden starts a downhill path where strollers can enjoy an easier, effortless and more leisurely walk.

    At the end of the Pine Tree Garden is a small pond. Take pictures of your reflection in the water and leave special shots and memory. Monorail platform 3 is found nearby. From here to the entrance takes about seven minutes monorail or 40 minutes on foot. There are two shelters to escape from lightning and rain, along with drink vending machines and trash bins. A restroom is located next to the first shelter. The other restroom is about a 20-minute walk away.
