Anyang Art Park: A playground of public arts with cultural assets
  • Opened in 2005, Anyang Art Park is a public art park that displays about eighty artworks by artists from Korea and overseas in various public spaces including Anyang Valley, the Forest Walking Path, and a public square. The Park was originally established as the Anyang Amusement Park, whose attractions included the clear pure water flowing through the valley and dense forest between Gwanaksan and Samseongsan Mountains, as well as a nearby Buddhist temple and other cultural heritages.

  • Anyang Art Park also contains the Anyang Museum, which exhibits relics discovered in and around Anyang and at the site of Anyangsa Temple, the Special Exhibition Hall, the Education Hall, and the Kimchungup Architecture Museum. The park is also the main venue for the APAP (Anyang Public Art Project) which is held every three years. Visitors can appreciate various artworks including the Anyang Pavilion designed by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza, and the Observatory designed by Dutch architects MVRDV.

    Located in the vicinity of the Park is Anyangsa Temple, Yeombulam Hermitage, the Flagpole Supports at Jungchosa Temple Site (Treasure No. 4), and the Rock-Cave Bell in Seoksu-dong (Gyeonggi-do Province Tangible Cultural Heritage). Visitors who collect stamps on the tour map distributed by the Anyang Art Park, Anyang Museum and other places are eligible for a discount on a meal or drink at the designated restaurants and cafes on Food Street located next to the park.
