As summer draws near, swimming pools and water play zones at Hangang Parks throughout Seoul are planning their opening. This year, the swimming pools and water play zones will be open from June 28 to August 25. Unfortunately, Mangwon Outdoor Swimming Pool will be closed due to construction nearby.

Located in the middle of the city, enjoying the outdoor swimming pools and water parks at Hangang Parks is a great way to cool off in the summer. With amenities such as shower facilities, snack bars and more, visitors will be able to enjoy a day at the pool without any worries.

Swimsuit and swimming cap are required to enter the swimming pools in Gwangnaru, Ttukseom, Yeouido, Jamsil, and Jamwon, while the water parks in Nanji Gangbyeon and Yanghwa do not have requirements. The operating hours are from 9:00 to 19:00 with free admission for children 5 years old and younger.
