Seoul Botanic Park opened on Oct. 11. Before, Seoul did not have a place where its citizens could enjoy the greenery. Most of Korea’s arboretums and botanic gardens are in suburban areas. Seoul Botanic Park is 2.2 times larger than Yeouido Park. It currently has 3,100 different species of plants. The city government plans to expand this number to 8,000 species in total by May next year, when the Botanic Park will officially open.
