Danggogae Park

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.

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.
