Olympic Park Day

Olympic Park Peace Gate: Doing obligatory peace sign :) 
A couple weeks ago, Nicholas, David, Aksana and I went to Olympic Park to have a picnic and enjoy the beautiful weather. Seoul is full of amazing parks and this was just another example of one. This one reminded Nicholas and I a bit of Central Park.
It was built for the '88 Olympic Games and sits on an enormous amount of land. There were ponds, lakes, walkways, large areas of grassy space, pools, tennis courts, and the list goes on and on.
That weekend, the Jazz Fest was taking place, so we got a chance to catch some tunes from a distance.
We know some people here who complain that there are no green spaces in Seoul, but each week we are discovering a new park, mountain or large garden. This city has it all if you just look!
