Few days ago, I visited Seoseoul Lake Park located in Sinwol-dong, Yangcheon-gu, Seoul. In October 2009, the park was opened after the Sinwol Water Purification Plant, was remodeled into an eco-friendly park involving the theme of water and regeneration. The plant was transformed under the themes of “water” and “recycling” and reused some of the existing piping and filtering tanks. When making the park, the designers recycled many materials from the old water plant facilities, particularly the water pipes.
The park entrance signpost, bicycle racks, benches on hiking trails, and sculptures in the grass area were all made with recycled material from water pipes.
I was impressed by the exquisite harmony of the park's natural and artificial grafting.
It was a fine autumn day, I enjoyed strolling along the Central Lake and sketching various scenes in and outside the garden facilities.
아름다운 호수가 있는 서서울 호수공원~~
낡은 신월정수장을 '물'과 '재생'을 테마로 한 시민의 쉼터로
웰빙과 스포츠, 호숫가의 문화데크와 수생식물,
벽천과 소리분수, 몬드리안 정원과 재생정원.....
자연과 인공을 절묘하게 조화시킨 독특한 테마공원입니다.
