The latest, most popular place to visit in Northeastern Seoul ─ Dream Forest ─ is offering exciting winter activities to dispel the winter chills, Seoul City announced.
An outdoor snow mound for activities and a sled-riding ice rink can be found at the Ball Plaza housed within the Culture Plaza of the Dream Forest. They are open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. until Feb. 13.
The outdoor activity area located at the Ball Plaza occupies a combined area of 1,900 square meters. The snow mound alone measures 800 square meters and the sled-riding ice rink 900 square meters. The sites can hold up to 600 people. They are also equipped with a resting area, a public locker room, and other public facilities.
Another exciting program available is the “Unusual Sorts of Christmas Trees” exhibition on show at the Dream Forest’s Culture Plaza until the end of January 2011. A must-see is the 4-meter-high Christmas tree designed by industrial designer Lee Sang-jin, a professor at Seoul National University of Technology.
Seoul City said 50 people who register will be able to take part in a program for various activities, such as making Christmas cards and snowballs, on Dec. 24 and 25 at 10:30 a.m. Also, anyone interested in meeting New Year’s Day at the Dream Forest can register by telephone beginning on Dec. 9.
