Banghwa Neighborhood Park was named after Banghwa-dong, which means the village next to Gaehwasan Mountain with the fragrance of flowers all year round. The place was designated as a park in December 1990 and created as a park linked to the Banghwa housing development project.
The park has various amenities including sports facilities with a multi-purpose stadium, round squares, ponds, fountains and waterwheels. The park has many shelters and green spaces, including pergolas and service areas. Along the trail are various plants and trees including cherry blossoms. Connected with Gaehwasan Mountain, dense forests and Kkwonggogae Neighborhood Park, this park is a great place for family outings.
In summer, the park's fountains show off their splendor, while in winter, a round square is home to an ice sledding slope, which is a favorite with kids. While climbing Gaehwasan Mountain along the trail that is linked to the park, you can find sports facilities and mineral springs. At the top of the mountain is the famous Yaksasa Temple, which offers a commanding view of the Hangang River and Gimpo Plains.The park also runs a plant craft class in which you can learn topiary and pressed flower and mini-garden making. The program is held from July to October, every Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The spring brings cherry blossoms that line the trail, while visitors can enjoy inline skating as well as ponds and fountains. In autumn, one can appreciate the lovely colors of the leaves, and in winter, enjoy the ice sledge made on the rink in a round square especially for families. The park is run in connection with the adjacent Gaehwasan Park and Kkwonggogae Neighborhood Park.
