Yuldong Park. Some have heard of it. Some have not. Regardless of whether you have heard of the park, it is in fact there. If you are in Bundang and looking for an excellent park in which to relax for a few hours, Yuldong Park is the place to be.
Yuldong Park is an excellent 'nature' park on the outskirts of Bundang. It is a popular quick quick escape from the big city. It is easy to forget just how close the big city is to Yuldong Park. The park does a fantastic job of shielding itself from its urban setting.

Yuldong Park is not in Seoul. It's in Bundang. However, it is very worth the time and effort it takes to get there from Seoul. While you are there, enjoy the scenic walk around the lake. Enjoy the badminton courts. Enjoy the book-themed park. Best of all, enjoy the bungee jumping.
The centerpiece of the park is a beautiful lake which is surrounded by a walking path. Enjoy a walk around the park. There aren't many like it.
A popular attraction in the park is the 45-meter bungee jumping platform. It is a great place to get an adrenaline rush close to Seoul.
Yuldong Park seems to be a popular place for strange sculptures and other oddities. Walk around. Find them. Stare at them. Wonder what they are. Then move on to the next one.
A number of burial sites can be found in the park as well. While it would be a wonderfully beautiful place to be buried, don't cross your fingers. You will probably never be buried here.
Things To Do
Cycling is not permitted on the main path circling the lake. However, there is a wide promenade near one entrance to the park which is perfect for young kids to ride bikes or skate on. A bicycle rental shop is directly across the street from this promenade.
Near the northeast corner of the park, across the street, there are plenty of coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. Consider getting a "wapple" at the coffee shop seen below. Whatever a "wapple" is???
