Hwamyeong Eco Park
Hwamyeong Eco Park, which has the best accessibility in Hwamyeong New Town, is an ecological park visited by all age groups for multiple purposes, such as exercise and picnics.It has wetlands, aquatic decks, marine leisure sports, and a variety of sports facilities.
Hwamyeong Eco Park is also an excellent place to welcome autumn in Busan because you can see silver grass, metasequoia, and beautiful autumn flowers everywhere. Unfortunately, at the time of my visit, I couldn't see the flowers because they had already fallen. The metasequoia, ginkgo trees, and silver grass, which you can see in all their splendor around the park, will help you feel the autumn charm.
If you visit Hwamyeong Eco Park in the afternoon, the sunlight is warm and toasty, enhancing the autumn atmosphere. You can particularly enjoy the warm autumn feeling when you walk among the metasequoia trails near the 4th parking lot. The weather was delightful on the day I visited, so I saw many visitors enjoying picnics, walking, and exercising. Hwamyeong Eco Park is a pretty and large park with a look that suits each season, so you can enjoy various things, such as fields, trails, and the Nakdonggang River, no matter when you visit.
Railroad Trail in the Forest
Since the weather is quite cool these days, many people go for a walk in the afternoon. In Hwamyeong-dong, there is a walking trail that is particularly good for a walk in this weather. It is called the Railroad Trail in the Forest. This trail is a green area created to reduce noise from the Gyeongbu Line railroad.
The Railroad Trail in the Forest in Hwamyeong-dong is not that long, but the trees are planted quite densely, so you can feel like you are in the forest. In addition, most of the trees planted here are metasequoia and maple trees, so they are very green even in spring or summer, but when you visit in autumn, they are full of warm colors, so it feels especially charming.
In addition, the walking trail is connected to Hwamyeong Eco Park, so if you enter the tunnel under the bridge in the middle, you can go to the park, making it an excellent place to visit both. There are various types of exercise equipment on the trail, so it's suitable for light exercise, and the forest library is there, so it's great to take out a book and sit on a nearby bench to spend time. Also, sitting in the shade of a tree or on a bench makes you feel like you are out of the city with just the intermittent sound of a train, so it would be good to visit this place when there is no shade in the ecological park.
Golden Sunset Bridge
You can see a splendid bridge when you pass Gupo on the riverside road at night. The Golden Sunset Bridge was completed in May of this year. It is a pedestrian bridge that connects Gupo Market and the lotus colony of Hwamyeong Eco Park. In the past, you had to go around for a long time to go to the lotus colony, but with the creation of the Golden Sunset Bridge, you don't have to turn around, so you can go to the lotus colony very comfortably.
The Golden Sunset Bridge is about four stories high, and you can climb up it by stairs. When you stand on the bridge, you can see the view of Gupo Market to Hwamyeong-dong from both sides. Also, passing on the railroad, you can see trains passing by if the time is right.
If you walk along the pedestrian bridge, there is an observatory at the end, so you can take a break and enjoy a cool breeze and a great view. As the name suggests, you can see a lovely sunset, so check the sunset time and visit the bridge. Also, the bridge is lit in various colors at night, making it a wonderful place to see the night view. So it is a perfect place to wait for a while, enjoy the sunset, and see the night view.
The Golden Sunset Bridge is not that long, so it is great place to go for a light walk. If you are looking for a different tourist destination in Busan, it would be pleasant to visit here.
