South Korea have lots of garden and you can’t put down any of these garden. An hour drive from Seoul, there’s a heavenly place, where you can experience a Greek mythology atmosphere, this is the First Garden, located in Paju, a city of Gyeonggi-do.
Before the main gate you can see these fountains, a restaurant and a souvenir shop.
They also have BOSCO Café and Maison de Bon Restaurant where you can have a drink and food with an amazing view outside.
It is composed of different theme gardens, “Flower Garden”, “Water Garden”, “Festival Garden” and “Light Garden”. You can also find the Toscana Square, Rose Garden with the love story of cupid and psyche, and the Byeokcheon Fountain that looks like Zeus pouring water.
I love roses… so Rose Garden will always be my favorite same when I went to Seoullo 7017. Though the roses aren’t in bloom but still lovely.
They have also the Amusement Park where kids can play with variety of exciting rides and games. You can buy your ticket separately using the machine inside the garden.
Some of the facilities are Garden Train, Bumper Cars, Carousel, Gyroscope, Trampoline, 4season Sled and Spaceshot.
Gaudium Wedding Hall is usually is for events like weddings or parties. Honestly, I like this place for outdoor nuptial photos. This is also great for a garden wedding. This was also featured in the drama “Return of Bok Dan Ji- 돌아온복단지” (Episode 3) of MBC.
There’s a big cage with different kinds of birds inside. And on the other side you can find the Green House.
At the Green House they also have different species of plants, flowers, birds and hens.
A lovely cage to rest if you got tired walking around. They also have the picnic garden but I forgot to take a photo.
You will fall in love in every corner of this place due to its ancient Greek theme. It’s like you were in a fairy tale when you enter this place.
White Garden is composed of this big heart with a statue and a carousel just like in fairy tales.
I enjoyed this place because it came all at one place. My son loves to walked, play and run around the whole place. (That was so tiring honestly). One thing came out from my mind after visiting this place, this shouldn’t be named as First Garden, it should be “Secret Garden”, cause it’s not been discovered by many people.
Make a special memory with you family and friends in this place. If you are living in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do this is good place to check out. But for those who are traveling Korea, this is not advisable to add in your itinerary due to travel time. But if you still want to see, it’s always be your choice. ❤
