Children's Grand Park in Seoul

Today my husband had a day off so we decided to take the family to Children's Grand Park. Since the family hasn't used public transportation yet since we have been here, we thought this would be a good first time trip. We drove to the local station in Yangju and parked our car to jump on the train. As we exited our vehicle we were approached by a gentleman trying to tell us something. After using our handy dandy language book, we found out that it was not free to park. Since we were meeting a friend along the way, we paid the 5000 wons and were on our way. The subways in Korea were VERY clean and fairly easy to use. If you've ever ridden a NYC subway, you would be shocked by riding the Korean Subway, it was a nice change.

We arrived at our destination around 11AM and we were off. There is so much to see and do that we did not even get through the entire park. We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed our meal next to the water play area. The girls saw lots of different animals and even were able to feed little birds out of their hands. A playground caught their attention and we had to stop so they could have some fun climbing and running. All in all, everyone had a great time and were tired by the end of the day. Breanna fell asleep in the car on the ride back from the train station. I guess we'll have to schedule another trip down just to finish the parts of the park we didn't see.
