Yeouido, an alluvial island of the Hangang River in Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul, is the result of a land reclamation project of the 1968 Yeouido Development Master Plan. Yeouido Plaza was open to the public in 1972 after an embankment was built around Yeouido, and became what we now know as Yeouido Park in 1997. Yeouido Park comprises four spaces: Korean Traditional Forest, Grass Field, Culture Plaza, and Ecological Forest. In the vicinity are office buildings of companies that specialize in broadcasting and securities, such as Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), Dong-A Ilbo, and LG. Yeouido Park serves as a place of leisure and culture for citizens; there are bicycle and pedestrian paths that circle the park and visitors can rent basketballs and inline skates as well as electric cars for kids.
