  • Notes : Pyeonghwa Park or Peace Park is about 446,000㎡. The entire World Cup Park is represented as a space for peace that comes when nature, man and culture could live together and when the people all over the world could reconcile altogether. UNICEF Plaza is a futuristic open space and Nanji Lake is made from a tributary of Han River in 24,000㎡ area. In this lake, various aquatic plants with remarkable purgation abilities subsist. Also, Himang Forest or Forest of Hope, created by the program of 'Planting of 10 Million Trees of Life', and World Cup Park Gallery, would provide a resting place as well as a public educational place about nature with other green gardens in the park. Hanul Park or Sky Park is about 192,000㎡ and is one of the two hills of garbage dump. Its top is the highest place within the World Cup Park and commands good views toward Mt.Bukhan, Mt.Namsan, and Han River. Large grassland was established on the top for wildlife and then over 30 thousand grown butterflies were released to help build initial habitat. Noul Park or Sunset Park is about 340,000㎡ and looks down beautiful sunset reflected on the Han River. In Noul Park a nine holes public golf course is set in and a trail goes round the edge of the top floor. There have been hot debates that the park should be devoted to more accessible uses for all the citizens and public golf course is still very limiting uses by the general public and the sheer number of golf players in a day is very limited. The years long battle is not over yet. Nanjicheon Park or Nanji Stream Park is 294,000㎡. Nanji stream flows around the World Cup Park and finally into the Han River. Used to be an abandoned brook with polluted water from wastes, Nanji stream is revived as a natural creek where diverse plants grow in groups and flocks of birds and schools of fish visit to stay. An eco-park was created filled with reeds and willows and a forest thickly covered with 50,000 trees. In addition to it, about 5,000 tons water is streamed into the brook from Nanji Lake each day. Along the promenade, there are bikeways and in-line skate rink, and separate resting spaces for handicapped people, senior citizens, teenagers as well as general public
