Yangjae Citizen's Forest (part 2)
One of the flower beds within the forest (park). If we take a look closer into it, you'd be amazed at how many flowers were dashed and squeezed into one bed of flower garden like this.
It's nothing sort of extraordinary. But, still an elaborate effort by the management to keep the park look fancily beautiful.
I couldn't stop adoring the blue sky, though.
Off I went into the other corner of the forest (no..park:). I found some people do come here for photography, esp. those who were fond of Japanese anime. Gosh..I should've dared myself taking their pictures while in action.
Then..there were at least three memorial monuments were erected there.
Wonder what this one was.
it must be one of these. But not the the first one, I am sure.
I just realized that --historically speaking--these parks were homes to the monument of two tragedies that sparked the nation's anger years ago.
Okay, back to the forest...this is quite an interesting concept.
Adopt-A-Park? what is this actually? What's this anyway?
is it like...we're bringing in some sprouts, some seeds, some grow-to-be trees to be planted here on site? Nooo...
it's simply to keep asserting, affirming, reminding..all citizens to keep and love the park+forest.
Back to the stream I was crossing when I stepped into the park, now I was crossing this stream again when I got out of the forest (a.k.a. park).
This is the entrance/exit gate from the subway station (DX Line): the newest line in Seoul.
*more about this unique subway line in my other entry.
