|Julpo Ecological Park (줄포자연생태공원)|
|The Julpo Natural Ecological Park is a quiet park in the southernmost end of Buan. The park naturally turned into an ecological marshland after an embankment was built 15 years ago to protect the surrounding low-land areas from inundation. The embankment allowed reeds to overgrow and a freshwater wetland to be formed.
The total surface area of the park is 163 acres, with a 40-kilometer long reed field, wild flower bed, and a ginkgo forest path. In the fall, the views of golden reeds and yellow ginkgo trees are splendid. The Julpoman Foreshore near the park was designated a Ramsar wetland in January 2010. The foreshore offers a habitat for 50 or so bird species, salt plants, and wetland animals. Also, there is a large colony of Suaeda japonica, which turns stunningly red in early autumn. This is also a filming site of the Korean drama ‘Lovers in Prague’.
