Olympic Park

April 20, 2011

After stuffing ourselves silly, we decided we really wanted needed to take a walk. Luckily, Olympic Park is just the place for such an activity.

Olympic Park was built for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. This is the World Peace Gate.

It was so huge and quite impressive.

There were flags representing each country. It was a windy day and they were so beautiful waving in the wind.

This is a view from the opposite side of the wall.

In Korea, children are required to wear uniforms to school. I couldn't resist snapping a picture of all these little ones out on a field trip.

Here's another group.

On one side is that great, big wall with the flags...and just opposite that is a beautiful pond.

Here they are just starting...

They were so pretty.

They would build and build until they looked like this:

Just beyond the "water show" was a big, stone-arch bridge. It seemed like a diamond in the ruff...a pearl tucked in the city.

We crossed the bridge and took a nice walk along some paved trails. There were cherry three blossoms everywhere.

It smelled so good!

This a view from the other side, from the top of a hill, on the paved trail.

Olympic Park was impressive.

And just cause all the little kiddos on their field trips were posing with this little guy...I decided I should too. :)
