South Korea Opens Largest Greenhouse, Seoul Botanic Park

Seoul’s newest park and the country’s largest greenhouse, the Seoul Botanic Park, has soft-opened on October 11 and will be accessible to the public for free during the trial period until its grand opening in May 2019.

The size of roughly 70 soccer fields, the Seoul Botanic Park currently houses 3,100 species of plants with plans to get up to 8,000 species. It combines the “park” and “botanic garden” concepts where citizens and visitors can both enjoy the recreational facility and learn from the exhibitions.

Seoul Botanic Park features areas such as the Open Forest, Themed Garden, Lake Garden, and Wetland. The Themed Garden, open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and closed on Mondays, consists of an outdoor garden and Plant Culture Center that exhibits a greenhouse with plants from twelve different cities abroad. Other gardens and attractions are open 24 hours.

Seoul Botanic Park is directly connected to Magongnaru Station of Line 9 and the Airport Railroad (Exits 3, 4), which allows for fine accessibility. The park is located 30 minutes from Gangnam (Sinnonhyeon Station) and 40 minutes from Incheon International Airport.
