Even couch potatoes need a little fresh air and greenery now and again. I find my respite in a lovely little park near my home in Nonhyeon. Hakdong park is a quick getaway about a 15 minute walk from my apartment. It’s only 15 minutes because I walk super slow. #noshameinit I use it for rest and exercise. It has a couple of tennis courts, some Korean style work out machines, a place for the kids and a couple of pagodas to sit and relax. There is a nice little hill to get your heart rate moving along as well, which makes it a great place to get in some cardio.
I love it because its a bit wild, it smells like mud but its still in the middle of civilization.
