  • Seoul City Operates Waterparks and Summer Programs Free of Charge

  • SMG 2209

    Seoul City will be operating waterparks in 50 different parks and plazas in 17 districts from July to August, in order to offer residents an opportunity to enjoy playing in the water with their children to endure the scorching heat that will come right after the rainy season.

    The hours of operation will differ depending on the place, however from about 10:00 a.m.-12 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. guests will be allowed to enter free of charge.

    All the facilities have safety guards, separate shower stalls, and fitting rooms, except the waterscape facilities made for playing in the water. Water quality control is conducted every day for preventing the spread of summer diseases. For healthy use of the waterpark facilities, visitors are required to wear a swimming cap and goggles, as well as to take a shower after playing in the water for personal sanitation.

    Some places are operated with flexible hours according to weather, facility checks, and other conditions so it is imperative to check whether or not the facility is open before visiting. In addition to the waterparks, the city of Seoul will also be operating summer festivals and programs, such as water gun games.

    When the tropical nights arrive, visit Jungnang Camping Forest, World Cup Park, and Oil Tank Culture Park, where visitors can watch movies while enjoying the cool evening breeze.

    Jungnang Camping Forest will be operating the Family Cinema from August 8 to 10, where families can enjoy watching movies and listening to music together. At World Cup Park on Fridays and Saturdays between August 2 and 10, visitors can watch movies at 8 p.m. Oil Tank Culture Park will be operating the Forest Theater at from August 9 to 11 8 p.m. at T2 Outdoor Stage.

    Namsan Park and Jungnang Camping Forest will be running Evening Exploration, a program for searching for nocturnal insects. Gyenam Neighborhood Park in Yangcheon-gu and Seoseoul Lake Park will be running Evening Forest Walking for family participants.
