|Imsil Cheese Theme Park (임실치즈테마파크)|
|The Imsil Cheese Theme Park was established in 1958. At the time of the park’s origin, Imsil had no local specialty or unique color of its own; this changed when Ji Jeong-Hwan, a Belgium priest, came to town as a missionary. The town leader asked the priest to work for the general public, not just for Christians. After long thought and consideration, the priest opted for cheese production as a backbone industry for the town. The Imsil cheese industry, which started with a mere 2 mountain goats, has become a major industry in the town, even inspiring a theme park with its local flavor.
At the Imsil Cheese Theme Park, you may encounter the past, present and future of Imsil Cheese through a wide variety of programs and events including the Cheese sampling center, show room, dairy product processing factory, and local specialty market. In the Cheese Science Lab, an R&D department makes a continuous effort to produce the highest quality cheeses. Against the backdrop of sprawling green pastures, the park offers a wide variety of events and activities inspired by locally produced fresh cheeses.
