Information of Tourist Attraction
Seonyudo Park
Long, long ago, Seonyudo Island was a favorite place for scholars to paint or write poetry. In more recent times, it was a water purification plant before being transformed into Seonyudo Park in 2002. Park designers used features from the purification facility to create an environmentally friendly park. For example, the clean water reservoir was turned into a habitat for water plants, lotus, and salmon. With a water plant garden and forest children’s playground, Seonyudo Park is the most unique park in the city. It also offers a great view of the Hangang River and its surrounding landscape. Don’t miss the arched Seonyugyo Bridge for a beautiful view of the World Cup Fountain and World Cup Stadium. The night view is particularly striking with its spectacular lighting displays.

The building has 7 floors in total, 6 floors on ground and 1 floor underground. Now it is facilitated with a shopping mall, restaurant, gym, and worldcup memorial hall, so it is used as a cultural complex.

Upon the breakout of Korean conflict the people of Gaeseong (the origin of ginseng) refuged to Ganghwado island and began to cultivate the ginseng on a full scale in 1953. Ginseng is sensitively influenced by the weather and the earth soil with a severe environmental difficulties and so Korea is considered the most appropriate land of the world and Ganghwado island is confirmed of the best cultivation land for a 6-year-root of ginseng.
