With dense woods that are hard to find in the middle of the city, Yangjae Citizens’ Forest offers a great green space in which citizens can relax. The park was created as part of the park construction plan for the amelioration of the environment surrounding Yangjae Tollgate, the gateway to Seoul, with the Seoul Asian Games in 1986 and the Seoul Summer Olympic Games in 1988 just around the corner. The construction started in 1983 and was completed in November 1986. With Maeheon-ro as its border, the park is divided into the northern area, which is frequented by promenaders, and the southern area, where visitors can find various memorials. The northern area is loved by many citizens as it houses the Maehun Yun Bong-gil Memorial Hall at the entrance and a thick forest.
