Rose Garden in Olympic Park

Did you get the chance visiting Seoul rose festival and other rose gardens which started on the third week of May?

Good news! It isn’t late for you, sweet roses are in bloom to mid of June and certainly if you love these flowers you still have time to check it out.

After the longest rose tunnel from Taereung station, I found time revisiting Olympic park rose garden in Olympic park station.

Both are located in Seoul yet in opposite direction and both displays hundreds of roses varieties. It so happen that the day I went to Olympic Park, just last Saturday, it holds a Jazz festival. A lot of people falling in line from subway to the venue. 

Well, if you aren’t aware this park is often a venue of concerts and festivals in Korea and year round it’s wonderful to go around especially fall, so love the scenery here.

Rose garden isn’t that big here, but roses are in beautiful display and lesser crowd. In addition in front of rose garden, there awaits an English poppy hill, which in fall is a home for cosmos flowers.

You see, this garden is well managed in seasons, thus a nice place to visit year round. The 146 species of roses in this garden is admirable in May-June.

Never miss it out this month!

  • Direction: Seoul subway line 5 Olympic Park Station, exit 3. Walk towards the direction of the park and turn left after the crescent moon like sculpture. Walk untill you see the small bridge. It will lead you to the entrance. Will take you 15minutes on foot from the station.
