About

Dream Forest, located in northern Seoul, is the 4th largest park in the city after Seoul Forest, Olympic Park, and World Cup Park. Neighboring six surrounding districts including Gangbuk-gu, Seongbuk-gu, and Dobong-gu, the park was built on the site where Dreamland amusement park formerly existed. 

Surrounded by densely forested mountains of Byeogosan Mountain and Opaesan Mountain, Dream Forest provides a variety of attractions to visitors, together with an abundant amount of natural vegetation. The Cherry Blossom Path in the spring or the Maple Tree Forest in the fall are especially beautiful. Visitors will also find attractions designed after traditional Korean architecture such as the Wolyeongji (Moon Reflecting Pond) and the Wolgwang Falls (Moonlight Falls). At the top of the observatory, visitors are treated to a panoramic view of the whole park and a view of Bukhansan Mountain, Dobongsan Mountain and Suraksan Mountain. Dream Forest also accommodates various cultural venues. The Dream Forest Arts Center, with its Performance Hall and Concert Hall, the Sangsang Toktok Art Museum and several grassy lawns and plazas offer concerts and performances throughout the year. Several restaurants and cafes are also conveniently located within the park, making Dream Forest one of the most comprehensive parks in Seoul.

  • Underrated and a great place to stroll
    It's amazing that few people talk about this place. It's a big park with a lot of grass, a hanok, a fountain, a museum for kids, a cafe, and the best part: an observation deck where you can get a...
