Information current as of August 14, 2016

Over in north Seoul, one can find Danggogae Park. Not only does it provide access to Surak Mountain (Suraksan), but it also houses some top-notch sports facilities. Considering the park is in a relatively dense area, it is surprisingly sprawled out. There is room for quite a few visitors, all the while being able to provide a sense of privacy through its many walking trails.

Empty Mugs of Coffee

Empty mugs of coffee

An empty mug of coffee is not a mug of coffee. Is it?

Basketball? Check. Badminton? Check. Climbing wall? Check. Access to hiking on a mountain? Check. Danggogae Park sounds like a good place, right?

Danggogae Park is not flashy, but it has plenty to offer. Take a look. Try it out.

Space To Race

The main area offers a large concrete open space. It's a great place for kids to burn some energy while running around or riding their bikes.


A walking trail can be found around the edge of the park. There are actually multiple paths. Some lead to Suraksan, while other lead to a stage and a pagoda.

Climbing Wall

The rock climbing wall is the main feature of Danggogae Park. It's tall, wide, and a true crowd pleaser. If climbing isn't your thing, there are also multiple badminton and basketball courts.


Exercise machines are scattered throughout the park. There is a children's playground for children. If you're an adult, you'll have to go to Las Vegas for your playground.

Surprisingly, there is a small area for simple gymnastics exercises. There are a few balance beams as well as gymnastics rings. Use them freely, but use them safely.
