Weeping cherry blossom tree at Jeongdok Library

With the arrival of spring come beautiful blooming flowers, including cherry blossoms, forsythias, and azaleas. Even in Seoul, a large city filled with skyscrapers and cars, there are places to enjoy the sight and scent of spring blossoms. If you are eager to discover a different side of Seoul, visit some of the following parks to be greeted by blossoming spring flowers.

Spring Blossom Paths in Seoul

Seoul Forest

Tulips at Seoul Forest

Recognized as one of Seoul’s premium city parks, a magnificent sight of giant cherry blossom trees and tulips can be found at Seoul Forest. Visitors to the park can enjoy walking beneath the gently fluttering cherry blossoms or relax with a picnic on the grass. Don’t miss the chance to see deer and butterflies at the Ecological Forest while at the park.

Address: 273, Ttukseom-ro, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
(서울특별시 성동구 뚝섬로 273)

Jungnangcheon Stream Cherry Blossom Road

Jungnangcheon Stream Cherry Blossom Road

Most cherry blossom attractions in Seoul draw in a huge crowd of people. If you’re looking for a more intimate setting, then head to Jangnangcheon Stream’s cherry blossom road, a hidden attraction! The path follows Jangnangcheon Stream and is lined on both sides with forsythia and a cherry blossom tunnel overhead.

Address: Janganbeotkkot-ro, Dondaemun-gu, Seoul (Huigyeong2-dong Citizens Center - Gunjagyo Bridge section)
(서울특별시 동대문구 장안벚꽃로 / 휘경2둥 주민센터~군자교 구간)

Seokchon Lake

Seokchon Lake

Every spring, Seokchon Lake boasts a splendid view of cherry blossom trees in bloom. In particular, the sight of Lotte World appearing to float in the middle of Seokchon Lake creates a fairy tale-like picture. The cherry blossoms viewed at night are also spectacular.

Address: Jamsil-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul
(서울특별시 송파구 잠실동)

Seoul National Cemetery

The cherry blossoms cultivated at Seoul National Cemetery resemble willow trees with their branches hanging down towards the ground as they age, giving one an image of a waterfall of flowing flowers. Although Seoul National Cemetery is popular for its fascinating cherry blossoms, other spring blossoms such as forsythias and fringe trees serve as welcome sights.

Address: 210, Hyeonchung-ro, Dongjak-gu, Seoul
(서울특별시 동작구 현충로 210)

Jeongdok Library

 Jeongdok Library in Samcheon-dong

The entire area of Bukchon becomes vibrant every spring, but the sight of the white Jeongdok Library glimpsed through the blooming cherry trees is a special attraction. You can also find a large weeping cherry tree if you follow the path to the left of the library! If you’re looking to take a break, there are plenty of great cafés lining Samcheongdong-gil Road.

Address: 48, Bukchon-ro 5-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul
(서울특별시 종로구 북촌로5길 48 )

Cheonggyecheon Stream Hadong Plum Path

Cheonggyecheon Stream Hadong Plum Path

The Hadong Plum Path along Cheonggyecheon Stream is one of the first places in Seoul to bloom each spring. Their pure blossoms are a sure sign that spring is on its way! Walking along the path, you’ll be able to see plenty of plum blossoms as well as forsythia and sansuyu (cornus fruit). The path starts near the pedestrian overpass in front of Yongdap Station, used as a filming site in the drama “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (2016).”

Address: Yongdap-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul (Sindap Station – Yongdap Station section)
(서울특별시 성동구 용답동 / 신답역~용답역 구간)
