|Geumgang Park (금강공원)|
|Located at the foot of Mt. Geumjeong (alt. 801.5m) Geumgang Park stretches over a plot of land 3,094,215 meters square filled with lush forests and craggy cliffs and broken up by winding creeks. Regardless of the time of the year, a constant stream of people come to visit the many historical and cultural sites in the region, which once served as a base of operations for the government during the Joseon Dynasty. The area was referred to as Geumgangwon before becoming a park in June, 1973. On July 1st, 2004 the park once again made the news as the entrance fee was abolished and the park was made free to the public.
In addition to more typical sports facilities like badminton courts, the park also boasts carnival rides such as cable cars, bumper cars, and more. Visitors are also encouraged to stop by tourist sites such as the Busan Folk Tradition Arts Center, the Busan Marine Natural History Museum, and the Busan Botanical Garden.
