Yongji Lake is a great place to enjoy Changwon’s lovely scenery. With its soft track, foot massage path, and of course the light show, Yongji seems to have everything. But did you know that there are two parks next to the lake where a person can also sit, relax, and enjoy the sweet music of the cicada?
Yongji Park, and Yonji Culture Park are two of Changwon’s hidden gems. Yongji park, which is to located closest to the lake, is a lush green area, even in the high heat of summer. It is a place to take off your shoes, and sit under the numerous trees. There is a pagoda in the center of the park, which makes for a great backdrop for selfies or instagrams.
This park seems to be empty most of the time, so you will find yourself alone with your thoughts.
Yongji Culture Park is a bustling park with a track for running or walking with exercise equipment dotted along the way. In the center of this park is an amphitheater and a fountain, which shoots water into the sky.
While this park does not have the luscious green grass of Yongji Park, it does boast many benches for sitting, and a play structure for playing. There are also bathrooms. This park has many events. You will find it busy most weekend and weeknights, either with walkers and runners, or live music, food, or crafts. Why don’t you take a look?
