Small lake good for a 10-15mins walk. Filled with ducks and hugely grown lotuses running wild which makes for quite a sunset sight. Flew a drone and the sunset shots are spectacular.

This park is located near Jeonbuk National University. Local people likes this park. This park is very beautiful when lotus flowers are in full bloom.

We enjoyed our walk to the lake. There were some picturesque pavilions and nice sculptures in the park. We did not go to the zoo (which we think is there, somewhere).
