Flower Festival @ Ilsan Lake Park

Ilsan Lake Park, Flower FestivalIlsan Lake Park, Flower FestivalThe International Horticulture Goyang Korea Festival (고양 국제꽃박람회) was first held in 1997 and has attracted almost 6 million people to their international flower exhibition since then. The lake that the flower fest sits around is draw enough to this spot and is worth a visit any time of the year, but with the addition of the flower plots and photo-op spots, it’s a great day out. While I wouldn’t recommend visiting on a weekend during the festival period, if you’ve got a day off during the week, it’s just fine. When there isn’t a festival though, head there anytime!

Over 300 organizations, groups and companies come together to put on the spectacular flower power show and decorate the boardwalk around the lake as well as the paths that intersect nearby. There are indoor gardens and artistic floral arrangements, cultural concerts and performances. The art installations provide some cool backgrounds for photos and of course the flowers stun in all manner of shades, shapes and sizes. From the more common daisies to the beautiful iris, daffodils and roses, your favorite flower is probably being showcased proudly.Ilsan Lake Park, Flower Festival Ilsan Lake Park, Flower Festival Ilsan Lake Park, Flower Festival Ilsan Lake Park, Flower Festival Ilsan Lake Park, Flower Festival

The outdoor area includes a Love Zone, Happiness Zone, Joyful Garden and New Korean Wave area and numerous other sections with just as gleeful sounding names. The flowers are in full bloom and there is plenty of space for kids to run around and things for them to do as well. If you want to spend some time outdoors and then head indoors for a little fun outside of the sun, check out Zoolung Zoolung, an awesome petting zoo of sorts, or the Aqua Planet Ilsan a great aquarium with loads to see. Both sit just a block up the road and provide all kinds of fun for children and adults alike.
