How To Get There
Where: Seoul-si, Mapo-gu, Sangam-dong
From Line 6 - World Cup Stadium Station (월드컵경기장역):
- Exit 1.
- Walk to the south gate of World Cup Stadium. The south gate leads directly into Pyeonghwa (Peace) Park.
- Once in Pyeonghwa (Peace) Park, you should notice a hill to the right. Look for the zig-zagging stairs that go up the side of the hill.
- Climb the stairs (all 290~ of them), and then follow the path to the right until you get to the park.
- Walk to the complete opposite side of the park. Descend the steps.
- Walk up the mountain opposite you. Noeul (Sunset) Park is at the top of this mountain.
Alternatively, make your way to the Nanji Camping Ground in Nanji Hangang Park. Climb the zig-zagging stairs that go up the mountain on the opposite side of the freeway.
As you can see, getting to this park is a bit complicated. Perhaps its best to just look at the map below and do the best you can on your own.
Once you do find your way to the park's main entrance on top, veer to the right upon entering the gate. You will immediately see the clubhouse on your right.
