Walking Along a Meta-sequoia Lined Path
In the spring I found this flower lined path on the back side of Sunset Park (Noeul Park 노을공원) in the World Cup Parks system. I was surprised by the lack of people on this beautifully manicured path with yellow and white flowers. Cherry blossoms here and yellow bushes of flowers cascading over the wall there made for a very picturesque location.
While there, I noticed that the path on the other end that backs up to Sky Park (Haneul Park 하늘공원) had a sign that read meta-sequoia path and saved that in my memory for a future walk.

This week, I decided it was time to see the path as it was now likely lined with greenery and bushy trees and it was superb. Much like the flower lined lane it turns into, there were but a few folks taking a walk there or snapping some pictures here. It was quiet and a perfect family stroll location.
We enjoyed the shade under the trees and the little one enjoyed the rocks along the way. Where the path starts near the road is a new and updated bathroom and along the path there are sporadically placed picnic tables inviting everyone that manages to get here to sit, eat and enjoy the surroundings.
This is easily one of the best views of the World Cup Parks and likely often quiet as it’s on the backside away from subways and the parking lots.
We’re always looking for those spots to get away and enjoy some quiet time surrounded by nature and this one checks all of the boxes.
We are nature lovers at heart and this little one is a HUGE animal lover. This park also has bunnies that scamper around and that means our little one scampers too. With birds in the trees tweeting away, so too are we left “tweet tweet tweet(ing)” to have a
conversation with our flying friends above. The whole park is a must visit though I’d highly recommend it during the week. On the weekends, it can be a bit dense with people on certain holidays and in high season.
Take a walk with the family, a lover or just alone to breathe some fresh air. It surely does the body, heart and mind good.
