Ttukseom Hangang Park has a year-round theme park that operates a swimming pool in summer, an amusement park in the spring and autumn and…guess what?…
A snow sledding hill in the winter!
Last week, my daughter’s school organized a trip to ‘Supia Park’ in Ttukseom Hangang Park and a few parents were asked to help supervise the kids so we could follow. Everyone was so excited for snow sledding in the City!
All the kids, teachers and mummies had an amazing time there, although it was a usual freezing morning in Seoul.
That morning, as we went early around 9am, there was no cafeteria or little café area if you wanted to drink something or rest for a while somewhere warm, but we were informed about that and brought some water with us and obviously we managed to stay warm under the clothes…hohooho
There were two snow hills: one for young kids and one higher for bigger kids and adults’ fun! This is from where somebody could slide down the hill with the rubber bouncy rings.
There were also some men who were working there and were helping the kids while they were coming down from the hills in order to prevent any possible bounce between the rings.
The kids could carry each other’s snowboard or drag their friends as there were ropes at the edges of the boards.:)
Further down, there was another area where you could take these plastic snowboards where the kids really enjoyed it and was awesome fun too!
Everything was super safe for kids!
