    Introduction
    Wolhwawon Garden at the west point of Hyowon Park, located in Paldang-gu, Suwon in Gyeonggi-do, features elements that are heavily influenced by the traditional gardens of Guangdong Province in China. Wolhwawon Garden was established as a result of a special memorandom of agreement (MOU) made in 2003 between the provincial governments of Gyeonggi-do in Korea and Guangdong in China. In appreciation of each other's friendship and cultural heritages, both parties agreed to build a traditional garden that represents the other within the city. The construction of Wolhwawon began on June 15, 2005 and became open to the public on April 17, 2006.

    The components and overall design of Wolhwawon Garden was inspired by traditional gardens of ancient Guangdong. The view of the garden was made to be enjoyable from inside buildings through windows. Other features include an artificial hill made of soil with a man-made waterfall and lake. The garden has a total area of 6,026㎡ (1,820 pyeong) and was established with the help of 80 Chinese workers who came to Korea to build this garden and financial aid of 3.4 billion won from Guangdong.
