Snow Fun at the Ttukseom Park

Ttukseom Hangang Park is  a park located on the banks of the Han River in Seoul. Easily accessible by the Jihachul or The Korean subway (Line 7 to Ttukseom Resort Station and exit 2 or 3, it is located right beside the station),  it is a public park that transforms according to the seasons. The huge park encompasses a swimming pool, ice-skating rink, tennis courts, soccer fields, motor boating, water skiing, wind surfing activities according to the season. This place also houses a cafe and serves coffee and basic Korean dishes like Ramyeon (noodles in spicy broth). There were also a lot of cotton candy and ice cream to keep the kids filled up.

This winter, it was just a huge field of white dedicated for snow play. The main attraction were the two sliding area -one for adults and other for kids. The idea is simple. Climb all the way up to the slide with the tyre-like thingy and slide sitting on it. (There were helpful staff who kept a watch and let sets of people slide together to prevent collisions) It was the most fun time i had in a long time. Especially since there was none of the usual crowds that is synonymous with Seoul was present because Seoulites were busy with their own family celebrating the Seollal (Chinese / Lunar New Year).
