Seoul City Operates Waterparks and Summer Programs Free of Charge

Seoul City will be operating waterparks in 50 different parks and plazas in 17 districts from July to August, in order to offer residents an opportunity to enjoy playing in the water with their children to endure the scorching heat that will come right after the rainy season.


The hours of operation will differ depending on the place, however from about 10:00 a.m.-12 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. guests will be allowed to enter free of charge.

All the facilities have safety guards, separate shower stalls, and fitting rooms, except the waterscape facilities made for playing in the water. Water quality control is conducted every day for preventing the spread of summer diseases. For healthy use of the waterpark facilities, visitors are required to wear a swimming cap and goggles, as well as take a shower after playing in the water for personal sanitation.
