    Don't forgot to bring your picnic
    Visiting Seoul Forest did not disappoint, the tulips were in flower, it was such a pretty destination, my only mistake was that we did not know to bring your own food and drink, I expected there to be vendors inside the forest. So my only advice is to make sure you bring a picnic so that you can take as long as you like exploring these extensive grounds. Regardless, I am so pleased we ventured out to the forest, saw the beautiful tulips, water features, outdoor art and natural space in this large city.

    We wanted to go out of city to witness the fall foliage but didn’t have the time and energy. So we went here instead. Came around 10 to 12-ish and the park was not yet crowded. You will still find little spots that is quiet despite the busyness of everyone wanting to see the leaves. What I like about this is you can tie it up with a trip to hip Seongsu with lots of cafes. Had we gone to Nami or elsewhere out of town, we would not be able to pick our lunch and would have been forced to eat in a tourist trap. And oh, as in pretty much all of Seoul, easy subway ride.

    Deers
    Went to see the Sika Deers… funny thing when asking local’s about the park and deers, the response 100% of the time was that there are none…well I have the pictures to prove them wrong:). Beautiful park in the snow, kids enjoyed themselves pelting their parents (me in particular ) with snowballs. There’s also bunnies to see.

    A Spring Journey at Seoul Forest: Tulips and Wildlife
    If you're only staying in Seoul for a little while, you should probably visit Seoul Forest. During my visit in April, I enjoyed their tulip festival, which was a lovely experience. Watching and feeding various roe deer and sika deer in the eco-forest area was also quite enjoyable. Spring is the perfect time to capture beautiful photos along the cherry blossom path and take a leisurely stroll to the nearby Sowon Waterfall. What’s more, there are plenty of cafes with unique atmospheres near Seoul Forest, ideal for relaxing with a cup of coffee. For anyone seeking a peaceful escape into Seoul's greenery, it’s well worth a visit.

We enjoyed visiting Seoul Forest and learned it’s really four parks that make up Seoul Forest. It was a nice, cool fall Monday that made it very scenic everywhere. Colorful fall leaves everywhere.
A leisurely walk around the forest took about two hours which for us was around 2.5 miles.
Plenty of places to get snacks and drinks.
And it’s very close to Under Stand Avenue…

Love going to Seoul Forest. I have visited both during the spring, summer and fall. This past April, I went to see the sea of tulips and wasn’t disappointed, even during Corona Virus, the colorful tulips brought happiness and hope. But you can visit this place at any time and there will be some sort of flowers to enjoy. Peaceful for walks, picnics, dates, and activities for the whole family. I will definitely be back in the future. Lots of cafes and restaurants near by to enjoy.

A park rather than a forest, but still a nice place to go for a peaceful wander. Lots of things to see, including the 'Invisible Giants' area, deer enclosure, etc. On a hot day the trees drop the temperature. There are toilets and cafes. Lots of seats which are placed in areas that will protect you from the sun, rain and snow.

The park is big and has a good walk path, so it's convenient for taking a walk.
There are many beautiful cafes around, and it's fun to visit them.
Also, there are many trees. feel like one is in the woods of the city.
It's a good place to come when you want to rest, and to come with anyone, your boyfriend, family or friends.

It's alright, a quiet place to get away from the busy city. The kids seemed to love the water feature. We preferred Namsan park - get the cable car to the top and walk down. The walk down is amazing. I think there are two walks down - one has stairs and one doesn't.

Quiet, park-like "forest" in a mostly residential area, near to lots of nicer restaurants. 5-10 minute walk to the nearest subway stop. Some trails, benches and, of course, trees.

OUr daughter took us here and it is one of her favourite places to enjoy some fresh air and greenery whilst she works in Seoul. Easy to walk around, lots to look at, we saw deer and lots of birds etc. Looks like a popular spot for locals.
