Seoul is introducing 「180 Beautiful Spring Flower Roads」 for the spring season. Seoul has selected 180 spring flower roads found in big and small urban parks, roadsides, riversides, alleys, and more.
In 2018, 10 new beautiful spring flower roads were added, including the Gyeongchun Line (Railroad) Forest and Seoullo 7017. Flowers and trees are also being carefully planted on the spring flower roads selected previously in preparation for spring.
Seoul’s ‘180 Beautiful Spring Flower Roads’ can be checked on Seoul Metropolitan Government’s website (http://www.seoul.go.kr/story/springflower/).
On the other hand, according to K-weather, the bloom of spring flowers in Seoul is expected to come one or two days earlier than the last year.
Forsythias are expected to start blooming on March 26, and azaleas on March 27, reaching full bloom around April 2 and 3. Cherry blossoms are expected to start blooming on April 8 and will reach full bloom around April 15.
|○ Seoullo 7017||The Seoullo 7017, which was created by transforming an overpass located next to Seoul Station into walking paths, is a new tourist attraction with a variety of plants that give it the appearance of a small urban arboretum.|
|○ Jungnang Camp Ground||In this area, which had a pear tree orchard before being transformed into a park, white pear flowers bloom along the walkway since the middle of April, showing a great spectacle.|
|○ Dream Forest||Along this park’s main road, the bloom of wild flowers and Yoshino cherry blossoms is expected the most. Seize the moment to have lunch at the grassy square while enjoying the observatory and different cultural performances.|
|○ Namsan Mountain||Forsythias, azaleas and cherry blossoms color the mountain one after the other. The Hannamdaegyo Bridge is the best place to appreciate the full bloom of wild cherry blossoms in the Namsan Mountain in the middle of April.|
|○ Children’s Grand Park||This park is filled with old and huge Yoshino cherry trees, which makes it the most spectacular park to visit during the full bloom of cherry blossoms. It is also good for spring outing as it has a zoo that children love.|
|○ Seoul Grand Park||Yoshino cherry trees in Seoul’s beltway are just impressive. Seoul Grand Park’s cherry blossoms are perfect for those who missed the time for cherry-blossom viewing, as they bloom one week later than in other places.|
