Hang-dong Railroad & Pureun Arboretum
The Hang-dong Railroad had been used to transport military supplies since its opening in 1959. The landscape of the surrounding area is comparable to the beautiful Gyeongam-dong area in Gunsan which is a famous railway travel destination. Many photographers visited the site soon after it became famous. Today, it is a popular destination for family outings and a frequently visited date course for couples. Thanks to a coconut-matted pedestrian road located near the railway with a width of 2 meters, wheelchair users can also access the site.
The entrance to the Pureun Arboretum is 200 meters ahead of the railway. The arboretum, which was completed in 2013 by the Seoul Metropolitan Government, is an excellent example of a barrier-free facility. Most passageways can be accessed by wheelchairs and are easy to navigate. Gardens are composed under various themes include aquatic plants, marshland, silver grass, and autumn foliage. Pay a visit to the arboretum this spring.
Directions: 500 meter walk from Exit 2 of Cheonwang Station (Line 7)
