Owner description: This park is a good place to get away from the crowds and bustle of Seoul. The cycling trails (bikes are available for rent) are popular as are the swan boat rides. And the views of the Han river and city are stunning.

“Riverbank Biking”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

The Hanggang Park is a bikers haven. Whether you have your own bike or decides to rent in the many bike rental shops along the park, it is just mind blowing to see the Han River in it's majestic beauty by pedaling. Bike rentals offer regular (3,000W) to premium (6,000) type of bikes per hour plus an additional (500W) for every 15 minutes thereof. There are dedicated running and bike lanes that make it safe for both runners and bikers. There are also distance markers on the road that make it easier for bikers to see how far they have biked. The elevation is not too bad and is pretty alright for newbie bikers and requires minimal to no gear shifting at all. The shops also provide tandem bikes if riding in tandem is what you prefer. The Hanggang Park is very accessible by Seoul Metro Line 5.

“Great parkland skirting the Han River to exercise and relax”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

I live nearby (+/- 1.5Km) from the Han River and I use this park to run in 3 to 4 times a week. It stretches for 30 - 40KMs along the river, with well established cycle and walking / running paths and on summer weekends it can get quite busy. Lots of exercise stations located in the park along the river with sports fields for a number of sports (soccer, Rugby, badmington etc). I belong to a running club that bases itself in the Ichon section of Hanggang Park and we run every Saturday morning a 5km and 10km course. Everyone is welcome to join us there. You can find our location where we meet at www.seoulflyers.com. We are one of many clubs that base their sporting activities in the Hangang Park.

“Great for bicycle rides or walks”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

The path along the Hangang stretches for many kms so it's an excellent place to go for a long bicycle ride. However, if you do you'll know why so many of the people on bicycles have bandanas covering their face. The pollution is pretty bad. But this is one of the best places in Seoul to exercise away from cars. Also every so often you'll see outside gym machines that you can exercise on.
