    The old section that ran across Seoul has become defunct following the opening of Gyeongchun Line’s double-track railway in 2010. Since then, this area has undergone a transformation and reborn as Gyeongchun Line Forest Park.

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government built this forest park on the 6-km section from Gyeongchun Railroad Bridge near the current Wolgye Station of subway line 1 to Damteo Village on the border of Seoul.

    Unlike Gyeongui Line Forest Park, the original track of Gyeongchun Line is preserved as modern industrial and cultural heritage, bringing back old memories and arousing nostalgia to visitors.

    Set amid the dense forest of this park is Hwarangdae Railway Park, which doubles as a light park at night. Gyeongchun Line Forest Park also features a walking trail and an old train on display.

    How about taking a leisurely walk through Gyeongchun Line Forest Park to enjoy clean air in the heart of the city?
