    In light of the spring season, a time for enjoying the great outdoors, Seoul is set to host various programs at Seoullo 7017.

    ① Seoullo Volunculture 7080 Play Park
    Seoul will host the Seoullo Volunculture 7080 Play Park at the upper Seoullo 7017 Magnolia Stage on every third Wednesday between March and June, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    Adults and children can communicate and freely play games of the past
    that were played in backstreets, such as marbles, doodling on walls, and more,
    at the upper Seoullo area.

    The word, volunculture, in the title Seoullo Volunculture 7080 Play Park is a compound of “volunteer” and “culture,” and the said programs will be managed by the thirty volunteers that include staff members and university students in the Seoullo 7017 vicinity. Those wishing to participate are free to do so at no charge or site reservation.

    ② Seoullo Weekend Market
    Seoullo Weekend Market will open at the upper Seoullo Rose Square from March to June.
    Every second Saturday will offer Korean dance and belly dancing performances while
    handmade crafts markets will open on the second and fourth Fridays and Saturdays of the month with
    goods, including soap, candles, calligraphy, and flower tea.

    ③ Seoullo School, Seoullo Story Classroom
    The Seoullo School program offers people of all ages a new experience in the city through the use of Seoullo trees that is scheduled to run until June and is expected to welcome over 120 participants. Little Botanist is a program for childcare centers near Seoullo where Seoullo 7017 selects a plant each month for plant breakdown, observation, and illustrations as way of promoting an increase in the interest of plants among children.

    The Family Gardening Classroom requires participation from the whole family, and is structured around teaching Seoullo’s status as a city park through pot-making centered around upcycling and gardening activities.

    The 2019 Seoullo Story Classroom (Guided Tour) program is comprised of a walk with Seoullo storytellers while hearing about the history, culture, and ecology of Seoullo and is schedule to be held until June.
    * March 18 – June 17, every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, 10:30 a.m – 12:00 p.m., 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

    ④Busking Safe Zone
    The Seoullo Busking Safe Zone operates to help compensate for civil affair issues, concerning noise or intoxication in other busking areas. This zone has recently grown popular among buskers thanks to the management of safe, pleasant performances, and audiences.
