    Introduction
    Gangwon Provincial Arboretum, which is operated by Gangwon-do Provincial Government, was opened in 1999 to provide a recreation forest for the community to relaxa and learn about nature in the middle of the city. It comprises about 30 themed gardens, such as the four-season botanical garden, subtropical plant garden, succulent plant garden, and topiary garden, and holds some 1,800 species of plants. Visitors can appreciate a variety of seasonal flowers, exotic scenery, and interesting attractions. Furthermore, visitors can also enjoy flower-viewing on the cherry blossom trail and at the royal azalea garden in spring; avoid heat at the fountain plaza and in the metasequoia forest in summer; enjoy the chrysanthemum exhibition in autumn; and escape the cold inside a glass greenhouse in winter. Within the arboretum is The Forest Museum, which comprises the permanent exhibition hall designed with the theme of Gangwon-do's forest, including animals, plants, and mountain village life, the special exhibition hall, the 4D theater, and others. Other charming places include the Botanic Garden, consisting of an aquatic botanical garden, which is in harmony with a pond, artificial falls, and a pavilion, as well as the Children's Garden that serves as a nature playground for children.
