Baegse Park, located at Sunam Reservoir, is a fun and beautiful kid-friendly park with a bird watching station, playground, and dinosaur play garden.
Near the main parking lot is an area for playing a game called gateball. A group of older folks were playing this game inspired by croquet.
The playground is also near the parking lot.
Goseong is famous for dinosaur fossils and footprints, which you can put your own foot into at Sangjogam Park. This next area at Baegse Park opens up into a dinosaur play garden.
Kids can go through a rib cage, and climb into white dinosaur eggs. Around the garden area are picnic tables with a cover, which offers shade on a summer day.
At the center of the park is a cute little windmill on a small hill. Though not very large, it really stands out even from a distance.
I remember stumbling across Baegse Park in my days of wandering Goseong on foot in 2018, and wanting to take my girlfriend at the time (now my wife) to this place. That wish came true on a summer night in 2018 when we ate delicious fried chicken at a picnic table on the hill next to the windmill.
On one side of the hill facing Sunam Reservoir is a bird watching station. There are stepladders for kids to use the binoculars to look out at birds or whatever strikes their fancy.
There are signposts showing which birds to watch out for, one describing summer birds and one for winter. The one below is for winter.
Sunam Reservoir integrates nicely with Baegse park.
Beyond the windmill hill are some paths around the water.
I’ve seen many turtles here. Some of the pictures below are from 2018 when I first walked by Baegse Park.
Be careful of the dinosaur lurking.
On the far end of the park is a boardwalk leading through the reeds of the reservoir. It leads around to the other side of the reservoir.
It’s quite a peaceful stroll.
You may have noticed a colorful building in some of the photos including the one above. Baegse Park and Sunam Reservoir are connected to the sea on the other side of the road. This building helps filter the water.
A short stroll from this building is a nice little bench with a heart shaped structure. Or is it an apple? Anyway, it’s a great view of the whole park and reservoir.
One more note about this park is that it has a bike path running alongside the park which is part of the Daedok Nurigil trekking trail. It connects all the way to Galmobong Forest Bathing area about 6 or 7 km away.
Sanchaeg café, whose building is made with a covering of baked clay, is within walking distance of the park. It’s a nice way to refresh in the summer after being out in the sun.
