    The Seoul Metropolitan Government will run an ice skating rink and a sledding slope in Yeouido Park in 2016, for the second year since 2015, to revitalize the use of the park in winter.

    In 2016, it will also run a sledding slope, snow playground, food markets and food trucks to provide a variety of activities and food. The name of the place is Yeoui Ice Park, with more expanded features.

    The Yeoui Ice Park will be open from 10 am to 9:30 pm everyday for 71 days from December 9th, 2016 to February 17th, 2017. It will be open from 4 pm on the opening day due to the opening ceremony.

    People can play at the snow playground for free when they are waiting to use the sledding slope or even if they don’t use the facility. They also can visit exhibition booths installed together. However, the skating rinks and the sledding slope can only accommodate up to 400 people at a time in order to prevent accidents.
