Semi-forest, insects, birds and wetland, these are what comprises the Saetgang Ecological Park at Singil Station. The famous Saetgang bridge in addition, lighted at night is what made this park popular too.
To locals, biking and walking paths are most likely what keeps them coming back, to some tourists and foreigners it is the landscape scenery of the bridge especially at night where the bridge connecting Singil and Yeouido is brightly and colorfully lit.
Trees and grasses are in luscious green. There were also some wooden foot bridges around the park and a boardwalks. Birds were a common sight.
We were in the park for a photo shoot, a common event of our group, FILIPOS. As I, explore the area they were also busy doing the fun shoot. The park was tranquil, fresh air and only a few people passed by so we definitely had a nice location.
Most probably, autumn would be a great sight too and it’s sooner as the leaves these days started to change color. Another season to look forward to.
