Welcome to Seoul Botanic Park.
Seoul Botanic Park organically integrates a botanic garden and a public park. It is continuously
growing with the goals of proposing a future for Seoul as a sustainable green city and possessing
at least 8,000 species of plants through proliferation and exchanges with domestic and international
Seoul Botanic Park largely consists of four areas: Open Forest, Lake Garden, Wetland Garden, and
Themed Garden. Each area is unique with four distinct atmospheres. In particular, Themed Garden
boasts the world’s only greenhouse that has the shape of a concave plate. It showcases native
plants from 12 cities in the tropical and Mediterranean regions. You will be able to explore botany
and learn about the unique plants from different climate zones.
In addition, with the aspiration to become the center of plant education and gardening culture,
Seoul Botanic Park offers plant education and experience programs for all ages and skill levels
from gardening beginners to expert gardeners. The park also plans to host unique exhibitions and
programs in each season to revitalize citizens’ lives, and raise Seoul’s status as an ecological city
through plant exhibitions and conservation activities.
The park will create an environment where people, wild animals, and plants can coexist by
protecting biodiversity and keeping a balance in the ecosystem through the protection, restoration,
multiplication of endangered wild plants as well as education and publicity. We will also continue
to invest in plant research and conservation to multiply plant species that are difficult to reproduce,
secure genetic resources of plants, and develop new species through crossbreeding.
Seoul Botanic Park may be small, but it will continue to grow based on our visitors' love. We ask
for your support and interest to help us grow into a global botanic garden and a hub for
conserving and studying plant resources to be passed down to future generations for hundreds of
