Prepare for your trip to Gangneung
This area was established to restore the lake ecosystem near Gyeongpo and create a habitable environment for a wide range of aquatic organisms. The salinity of the Gyeongpoho Lake was lowered and the water was allowed to flow out, instead of remaining stagnant. There is an open public square as well as facilities where people can observe the wetland ecosystem.
This is a memorial park that contains the former home of Heo Nanseolheon (1563~1589), a poet of the Joseon Dynasty, and Heo Gyun, the author behind Hong Gildong jeon (The Story of Hong Gildong), as well as a memorial hall dedicated to the two. The house has been designated as Cultural Material No. 59, while the memorial hall has been established as a cultural site to honor the literary achievements of Heo Gyun and Heo Nanseolheon.
Because Gyeongpo Aquarium opened its doors not too long ago in December 2015, the glass walls are super-clean for you to take a look inside. The admission fees are slightly expensive, but there are various discounts offered, and plus, if you re-visit with a used admission ticket, you will be able to receive a 50% discount. Please note that it is operated by a private business operator. It is located near Gyeongpo Wetlands.
