    Seoullo 7017 is an elevated linear park and pedestrian greenway made as a part of Seoul’s city-wide urban regeneration project to bring happiness to citizens with a space to enjoy greenery and promenades in the city. The number ‘7017’ in its name is a combination of two separate years signifying its construction in 1970 and rebirth in 2017. Moreover, ’17’ also refers to its 17 pedestrian path connections that create a walking tourism network. Along Seoullo 7017, pedestrians can enjoy a path of hydrangeas in bloom as well as gain easy access to Culture Station Seoul 284, Seoul Station, Malli-dong Plaza and other day-to-day scenes of downtown Seoul. Seoullo 7017 has been reborn as an attraction filled with flowers and trees to serve as a place of communication that connects neighborhoods for visitors to enjoy the history and culture of Seoul together with nature.
