A park in harmony with nature with many sports facilities
The mountain is called Bongjesan Mountain (meaning "crying phoenix") as it looks from above as if a crane is sitting on top of her eggs. The main peak of the mountain is Maebong Peak. This mountain is also known as Neungdongsan Mountain, Maebongsan Mountain, Sudangsan Mountain and Hwagoksan Mountain. The name Neungdongsan Mountain can be found in the manuscript of Haedong Map made in the 1760s. The name Maebong comes from the name of its main peak. The name Sudang originates from Seonangdang, the shrine to the village deity where residents prayed for peace and health. This mountain has been called Hwagoksan Mountain since 1967.
The park's name was first Baekseok (white stone), following the story that white stone is produced near Baekseok Middle School and Deungchon Elementary School, Deungchon-dong.
