The Seoul Metropolitan Government will expand the nighttime opening hours of Seoul’s major parks and their amenities during the summer months of July and August.
Seoul Grand Park in Gwacheon will operate for extended nighttime hours, as will key amenities at major parks throughout Seoul City, including barbecue sites, baby carriage rental centers, and convenience shops and stalls, as well as various experience programs.
Seoul Grand Park will be open for a further four hours, with the closing time delayed from 6 pm to 10 pm from July 16 to the end of August. The opening hours of the zoo, Elephant Tram, Sky Lift, four cafeterias, baby carriage rental center, and souvenir shops will also be extended. In addition, the park will offer customized nighttime programs, including “Camping at the Zoo,” a family-oriented camping program, and a nighttime zoo exploration event.
Children’s Grand Park in Neung-dong, Gwangjin-gu will maintain its ordinary operating hours through to 10 pm, but will extend the opening hours of its theme park to 7 pm on weekdays and to 9 pm at weekends. Additionally, it will extend the opening hours of the water park (by two hours to 6 pm), which is highly popular among children, and the music fountains (by five hours to 9 pm).
Other major parks, including Dream Forest, Seoul Forest and World Cup Park, are always open 24 hours a day so there are no limits on their admission hours. However, the operating hours of various facilities will be extended during the summer.
