On the Friday, Dec. 12th, 2022, we visited Busan Citizen Park. As its name tells, it lies in Busan. More specifically, it’s to the north from Lexis Korea Seomyeon Campus.
Busan Citizen Park (부산시민공원) was formerly Hialeah Camp of the U.S. Army from 1945 to 2006. It had not only military faculties but also a school and many daily systems for the local Americans.
After the camp was removed and now became back to South Korea, it was reborn as a grand park for local Busan citizens.
We entered from the South Gate. In summer, it shows a waterfall.
There’s the museum about the history of the park, from when it was the military camp.
Gongsa jung bulpyeoneul deuryeo joesonghamnida… (Sorry for your inconvenience due to our construction)
In winter, as you see, you can find this small and red fruit. Looks so yummy! 😉
Sometimes some other institutes display their artworks like this.
There’re playgrounds for kids as well. It’s only available to children, however. 😉
At the center of the park lies this grand grass field. In spring to fall, you can see many people camping with tents there. I want to camp with my family members… But as I live Ulsan, it’s just my sand at the castle.
Korean magpies! They’re much better intelligent than me. XD
Now the park is with… the Light Festival or something called like that. So, we can see diverse neon-signs around the park.
We had an opportunity to make a wish card!
Writing my wishes and hand it on the wall with a golden bread-tie.
Day by day, a few of exhibitions are held. Today, one of them was in the Dasom gallery.
In the gallery, we saw many paintings for temples and some images that are confusing whether they’re pictures or paintings, like the right above one.
I think the best activity that we can do in this park is feeding fish.
You can buy a cup of fish food by 1,000 won. The fish food smells great and yummy!
You can become a fish dragger! I dragged that many fish.
In Korean, we say “half water, half fish (mul ban gogi ban, 물 반 고기 반)” for such scenes.
Busan Citizen Park is actually one of the best parks in Busan. When it is warm enough, why don’t you have a picnic with your families or friends? 🙂
