Path with Traditional Fences: Path of Hydrangeas, Roses and Tradition
  • Over the pond with water lilies and a water wheel lies a path decorated with seasonal flowers, Korea's traditional stone walls and giwa roof-tiled walls, followed by the Rose Garden, a black bamboo forest, a 50-seat shelter and a restroom, which are arranged for a break.

    There is a lawn with special sculptures, a great photo spot, and a firefly stream too. A special reservation-based program is held here every June to observe fireflies: a great chance to see the insects, which are known to inhabit unpolluted areas only, and are hardly found in cities.

  • Passing through the Firefly Habitat is the last destination, the Nostalgic Garden, which display fun miniatures depicting rural Korea in the 1930s: witty figures performing samulnori, dancing ganggangsullae, riding traditional swings and playing neoltuigi, together with a barbershop and other shops.

    Just outside the Nostalgic Garden is a traditional restaurant serving traditional Korean rice wine, tofu and kimchi, seafood pancakes and acorn jelly (opens from 10:30 through 18:00), as well as a teahouse in a traditional Korean building and Healing Ville restaurants behind the ticket booth.
