Yongin Agricultural Theme Park 용인농촌테마파크

June 6th is Memorial Day here in Korea and Clark and I both had the day off, so we decided to spend it at Yongin Agricultural Theme Park. The park has a little bit of everything: wild flower garden (my favourite), small (very small) petting zoo, insect and farm tool/equipment exhibits, restaurant, walking/hiking paths, small pond, and a stream. There's also a children's play-gym area including an interactive fountain and "tu-ho" (투호), traditional Korean arrow throwing.

One of the highlights of the park is the "lookout sheds" or "weon-du-mak" (원두막). Arrive early enough and you can claim one for your very own; the perfect place to picnic, relax, and stay out of the heat. The park really is a haven for picnickers.

Undoubtedly though, the real draw to the park is the flowers.

If you have time, I highly recommend checking it out! Parking is free and admission is only 3000won (free for residents of Yongin - just show your ID). It opens at 9:30am and if you can, get there early. It starts to get crowded around noon.


  1. Thanks for this, I really appreciate what you have done here. Keep it up, and I will be back for more.
