Information current as of August 17, 2016


Beside Hyochang Stadium sits Hyochang Park. Members of the Korean royal family used to be buried at this site. In 1940, the then-ruling Japanese decided to start converting the 'cemetery' into a park. After independence, Korean revolutionary members were also buried at the park. Along with the well-maintained tombs and shrines, the park also offers excellent walking trails, picnic areas, and sports facilities.

The Scouting Report



Hyochang Park doesn't get much attention. It sits in an older part of the city and doesn't receive a lot of upkeep. However, it has plenty to offer. Walking trails, badminton courts, basketball courts, etc. Good stuff!

Get Out And Stretch Your Legs

The walking trails are quite pleasant. There are three walking trails, and they all differ by length. Red, yellow, or blue? Choose wisely!

Benches

Benches are scattered throughout the park. Don't be afraid to sit down and use one. It is a big park!

And why are you reading about the benches at Hyochang Park? Huh?

Playground

Are the kids getting a little restless? Well, bring them down to the playground. There is room for all!

Library

Do you want to borrow a book? Would you like to make a phone call? Do you need some shelter? Would you like to get the blood flowing? If you answered yes to all those questions, then Hyochang Park is the place for you.
